A memorial wake for Jesse Holt will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28, at the New Jerusalem Primitive Baptist Church, located at 777 N.W. 85th Street in Miami. The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29, at the New Birth Cathedral Miami, located at 2300 N.W. 135th Street in Miami.
Holt, the founder and coach of the 41-year-old Miami Northwest Express Track Club and meet director of the annual Northwest Track and Field Classic, died Sunday at his home in Little River at age 73.
While serving in this capacity Holt was able to coach, inspire, mentor and transform the lives of countless youth and families in South Florida and around the world. Holt was a generous man, and he shared his personal resources to help create opportunities for those who were less fortunate than he was.
In lieu of flowers, the Holt family asks that donations be made to the club at www.mnwexpress.com or https://www.gofund me.com/jesse-holt-legacy -fund-nw-express-2vwkzcxw.
