A Great friend, Family Man, and Coach Passes away.
Canadian Junior “Team 2010” Coach Jindrich Mayer passed away the evening of December 30 near his home in Calgary, Canada. Mayer was traveling with his children on a stretch of highway near his home when the vehicle collided head-on with another. Mayer's young daughter, Annabell, also lost her life in the accident. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Mayer family as well as the Canadian ski jumping community, which has lost a great friend, father, coach and mentor. The funeral for both will be Monday, January 10 in the Calgary area. If you would like to make a donation to the Mayer family memorial fund, you may do so by following the link below.
