Oren Dorell

Dear DC Wave Swim Team,

It is with deep sadness that I write this. This weekend we lost a member of our DC Wave family. Oren Dorell passed away after being hit by a car Friday evening. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Ginny, Malcolm, and Leo on the passing of their husband and father. You can learn more about Oren, a reporter with USA Today,  here.

The Dorell family welcomes food and brief visits, particularly later on this summer and fall as the waves of visitors subside and their grieving process continues. To facilitate that, you can sign up to deliver a meal or meals on their Meal Train here. On that link, you’ll find their address, preferred timing, and dietary restrictions.

Please continue to keep Malcolm, Leo, and Ginny in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time of mourning.
