The East Brunswick community, including East Brunswick Soccer Club, is in mourning after a tragic loss.
Raveendran Chinnasamy, known to us all as "Coach Ravi," collapsed on the field shortly after his daughter's game Saturday morning and passed away. He was an energetic, positive coach dedicated to our program, and bettering the lives of our children, and was a mentor and role model as well. He touched many lives in his devotion to volunteering, and coaching with purpose and with a smile.
He was a volunteer coach who spent a lot of time on the Dideriksen fields, and someone who impacted the lives of our children. For that, we will always be grateful.
Coach Ravi will be missed by all, but he will remain in our memories forever. He leaves behind the positive impact on the lives of his family, friends, players and the greater EBSC and East Brunswick communities. Please join us in sending prayers, positive thoughts and support to the family.
Additionally, a GoFundMe campaign for the benefit of his family has been set up at the following link: https://www.gofundme.com/raveendran
