Chattanooga Football Club is heartbroken by the news that our dear friend and community treasure, Olivier LeMaitre, passed way early this morning.
Olivier served as our Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Sales from January 2019-September 2020 and was a big part of the club's transition from amateur to pro.
He was a major supporter well before his official role with the club and continued his unwavering support.
Olivier was just named CEO of the Chattanooga Community Kitchen last month. His passion for service to others made that the perfect position for him.
His family have been sharing updates on the Caring Bridge website since his heart attack on October 2.
"Olivier means so very much to so many people. He is a Godly man and an inspiration and a rock to everyone he comes in contact with," his family stated.
