GlenOak High School and local school community gentlemen in mourning over the death of Jared Marcom.
The 18-year-old was killed in a tanker truck crash on Route 8 in Akron.
Marcom recently graduated from GlenOak High School and was a freshman at the University of Akron.
“I had the honor of coaching Jared in Little League Baseball across Holly Hills. Jared was a member of the GlenOak High School squad, along with other activities, and he was an amazing young man who would be missed a lot,” said Superintendent Brent May.
Grief counselors will be available in the area for students and staff. The University of Akron said support services will also be provided to members of the campus community.
He raised a GoFundMe account to help the Marcum family cover final expenses over $ 14,000.
