Coach Jay Chagnon remembered
June 13, 2020
Dear North Texas Swimming,
It is with great sadness, we announce the loss of a dear friend and coach, Jay Chagnon, who passed away this weekend. He was a wonderful husband to Dawn Chagnon (also a NT coach) and an incredible father to their three boys. He loved his family beyond words and brought joy to his community of swimmers and their families. Jay was especially known for his love of swimming and coaching, inspiring his athletes to achieve their personal best and to always represent themselves in the highest character. He always had a smile on his face and would help anyone who was in need.
A memorial will be held Thursday, June 25 at 2:00 PM at Prestonwood Baptist Church, 6801 W Park Blvd, Plano, TX 75093.
We imagine many of you may want to find ways to support the Chagnon family. While we have not received all of the final details, we have been told a 529 plan trust is being created to assist in funding the Chagnon brothers’ higher education. We will provide more information as it is given to us. Please keep the Chagnon families in your thoughts and prayers.
