The latest on Jim Smith

This is an update about former Olathe High School football coach and district administrator Jim Smith posted on Lauri Orscheln’s Facebook page:

Our family has had to make a difficult decision today, Wednesday, May 13. Dad is just worn out and he has no fight left. We are moving him to Olathe Hospice House today. He is at peace with this decision and ready for the suffering to stop. He is grateful for all the prayers and kind words. Please keep him in your prayers as he moves down this path. Much Love. Melanie Smith

  1. My prayers will continue to be with Jim and his family.

  2. My senior year at Olathe High School (1962-63) was Coach Smith’s first year teaching. As recently as a few years ago, he would remember and acknowledge former students from 50+ years ago. He was a great teacher, coach and mentor. Our prayers for Coach Smith, his family and friends.

  3. My sincere prayers for Jim Smith and his family.
