J.P. Taravella High School athletic director Jason Stein, who died of complications from COVID-19 last week, was honored by Broward County commissioners at Tuesday's meeting.
Commissioners held a moment of silence for Stein, who died Thursday at age 46.
In addition to his athletic director duties, Stein had worked as a coach, teacher, driver's ed instructor and counselor at the Coral Springs school, Principal Mary DeArmas said in a statement.
"Coach Stein was a perfect example of being one of the leaders of our JPT family," DeArmas said in the statement. "He never met a stranger, he was as REAL as anyone could be and most people quickly picked up that he was all HEART."
DeArmas said Stein battled the coronavirus in the hospital for over a month.
Stein was married with two daughters.
