LEROY – Unique and hardworking is how head coach B.J. Zeleznik describes 28-year-old Jordan Reinhart.
Reinhart died in a car crash last week. Zeleznik told WJBC’s Marc Strauss this tragedy has impacted LeRoy High School and the community. Reinhart was the defensive coordinator for the Panther football team the last three seasons.

“Like always though our community does such an amazing job of lifting families up in their time of need,” Zeleznik said. “They’ve been busy putting things together to help the Reinhart’s out as we transition forward from this tragedy. I know there has been a meal plan put together to do dinners for them that is already booked out through July. Then of course there is the GoFundMe page.”
“He was just such a wonderful example for all the young people in our community for what it takes to be successful in life in terms of attitude and effort,” said Zeleznik. “Just a remarkable young coach.”
Zeleznik’s wife Amy started a GoFundMe page for Jordan’s wife Ana, who is a math teacher at the high school. As of Tuesday afternoon, the GoFundMe page has raised over $128,000.
