A beloved football coach and teacher who died from COVID-19 complications was remembered during a funeral Thursday.

The service for Jeremy Morgan was held at Waxahachie Bible Church.

Morgan was the offensive coordinator and taught psychology at Forney High School.

The 44-year-old developed pneumonia after being infected with COVID-19.

He died in the hospital last weekend.

Mourners say Morgan’s death shows that COVID-19 does not discriminate.

“It not only brings it home to our town here, but I think it brings it home to everybody who thought, that’s something happening out there, no it's happening here,” Morgan’s friend, Mike Fay, said. “It's sad and painful, but I think we're all so much better to have known him."

Morgan leaves behind a wife and three children.
