Here at Michaels & Smolak we were saddened to learn of the sudden and untimely death of Brendan Jackson, who passed away immediately after finishing the last running segment at the “Seneca7″ relay race around Seneca Lake on Sunday, April 30, 2017.
We at Michaels & Smolak are proud sponsors of the Seneca7.
Brendan was a well respected and loved triathlon trainer with thirty years of coaching experience. We extend our sympathies to his family and his many friends.
Our hats go off to all the Race officials and several racers, volunteers and emergency personnel who valiantly tried to save Brendan’s life.
The Seneca7 is a 77.7-mile relay race around Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes, beginning and ending in Geneva. The event was held last Sunday, with about 328 seven-member teams participating. This was an important milestone for the “7”-themed race: It’s ‘s seventh year.
Seven is also a lucky number. All those who had the privilege of knowing and loving Brendan were indeed lucky. May he rest in peace . . . .
