Jeff Giosi, owner of CrossFit Morgantown in Morgantown, West Virginia, died unexpectedly Saturday morning.

Doctors believe a genetic aortic aneurysm, a condition that ran in his family, likely caused his sudden death, and an autopsy will be performed to confirm.

The website for CrossFit Morgantown declares it is “not just a gym … (but) an encouraging and family friendly fitness center dedicated to supporting the Morgantown community.” The outpouring of support in the hours following Giosi’s death is a testament to the strength of that community.

“In his short but full 40 years, Jeff made more of an impact than most people do in a lifetime,” wrote Kristen Miller, the organizer of a GoFundMe page for Giosi’s family. “His passion for community, brotherhood, health, and all things ‘epic’ was a beacon of positivity and hope to all who met him. He was the epitome of a life lived to the full, and he left nothing on the field. Jeff fought a great fight; he ran a great race; he kept the faith,” she continued.

Giosi is survived by his wife, Sarah, and two sons, 3-year-old Arlen and 1-year-old Mackie.

WOD MEANING: 10, 20, 30, 20, 10 is a repetition scheme that represents Jeff’s date of passing, January 23, 2021. (1.23.21)

The repetitions are broken up by 1 Power Clean and 3 Front Squats, which represent the ages of Jeff’s sons, Mackie (1-year-old) and Arlen (3-years-old) at the time of his passing.

The time cap is listed at 29 minutes to honor the wedding anniversary of Jeff and Sarah, which took place on August 29th.
