The Vaquero family lost a dear friend, coach, and mentor this past weekend with the sudden and unexpected passing of Casey Dumont as a result of a heart attack. He leaves behind a 5-year old daughter... A GoFundMe fundraiser in support of the family has been started.
Coach Dumont, a respected special education teacher at Irvine High who also assisted with Vaquero football, had an amazing positive influence on the lives of countless IHS students and student-athletes over the years. A widely-shared Instagram post regarding his death, which can be found here, has become a tribute to Dumont's profound impact on the Irvine High community with hundreds of heartfelt comments from those that knew Casey.
Services are pending.
