High School Graduate is Sad After Being Shocked at Virginia Lake Such a Special Person


Jesse Hamric, 18, just finished Colorado’s Steamboat Springs High School, where he was the starting quarterback and a great baseball player.

Authorities say a high school graduate from Colorado died when he jumped into an electric lake while on vacation in Virginia.

According to CBS affiliate WDBJ-TV, Fox affiliate WFXR-TV, and NBC affiliate KUSA-TV, the accident happened on Thursday, July 4. Jesse Hamric, 18, was from Steamboat Springs and was visiting friends and family near Roanoke, Virginia.

911 was called to the Craddock Creek Marina at Smith Mountain Lake around 4 a.m. because someone might have drowned at the dock of a private house, according to WDBJ.

When Hamric’s friends saw that he was in trouble, they jumped into the water and both got shocked right away. Captain Stephen Anders from the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office told WFXR that they were able to get Hamric out of the water and start CPR before the police came.

Hamric was taken to a nearby hospital and declared dead. His two friends were treated at the scene and then released.

When PEOPLE asked for more information, someone from the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office did not reply right away.

The News & Observer reported that the sheriff’s office does not believe Hamric was killed by someone else, but the medical examiner is still figuring out the exact cause of death.

When he was at Steamboat Springs High School, where his dad, Jay, was the director, Hamric was a great athlete. Steamboat Pilot & Today says he was a great baseball player and starting at quarterback for the last two years. He or she was also really into snowboarding.

In Colorado, where Hamric lived, people are remembering how much he loved life. His friends and family are sad about his death. “He’s happy all the time.” “And uplifting,” friend Alex Schwab told KCNC-TV, which is a CBS station.

Schwab said, “Everyone in our snowboarding community has come together.” What a sad thing to happen. I mean, he was a unique person.”
