Hundreds of community members attended a candlelight vigil for Coach Jay Ingram at the Quest Soccer Field in Kennesaw Friday night.
The 32-year-old Kennesaw soccer coach and physical education teacher at Kennesaw Charter Science and Math Academy was while jogging on North Booth Road in Kennesaw.
Ingram was transported to in critical condition and died of his injuries Friday afternoon.
Ingram's wife, Corinne, announced his death on Facebook to family and friends:
I want to make all of you aware that my husband and father of our two children, Jay Ingram, passed away today at 330 due to complications from a severe traumatic brain injury caused by being hit by a car while jogging on 1/26/12. He has gone to live with his heavenly father and continue Gods work that he started here. I will keep his page open so that you all can comment if you want to. I will also update with arrangements so you all can pay your respects to him.
The driver of the vehicle, 50-year-old William Benton of Doraville, was not injured. The incident is still under investigation, and charges are pending, said spokesman Officer Mike Bowman.
Words of prayer flooded in for Ingram over the past two days. Community members from Kennesaw Charter Science and Math Academy, and Ingram's soccer club were just some of the people who gathered to pray for his recovery—and later—to remember his legacy.
We will post funeral arrangements as they become available.
Cobb Police ask anyone with information about the incident to call 770-499-3987.
