A tragic story coming from the Carson City School District – the death of a recent graduate of Carson High School. The district says Jake Roman, who was very active in high school sports, was snowmobiling and was fatally injured. Jake was the son of the high school’s Athletic Director Blair Roman and middle school teacher Susan Roman.
The school district issued a statement to the community:
“All our hearts are aching for all the Roman family this morning as we mourn the tragic passing of their son this past weekend. Jake was well liked throughout the school district among his friends, peers, coaches and educators. We appreciate his example, and the memory of his legacy will forever be impressed upon our souls. Our sincerest love goes out to his parents, Coach Blair and Susan as well as his siblings, Lily and Michael.”
The family said Jake would have turned 21 last Monday. Jake died after his snowmobile collided with a tree near Blue Lakes Road west of Carson Pass.
