Live Like Casey, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit foundation created in honor of the life of Casey Andrew Lohne of Medford NJ. Casey was killed in a tragic car accident on July 5, 2019, shortly after graduating from Shawnee High School. Casey planned to attend Salisbury University in Maryland and work as a student manager for their football team.
Casey had a passion for working with kids and wanted to study physical education so he could become a teacher and a football coach one day. Casey's love and enthusiasm for sports was contagious. You would see Casey on the sidelines of every Shawnee Football game waving a towel to get the fans "pumped up".
Casey's involvement at Shawnee High School was one of his many great experiences. He was a manager for the football team. He also participated in track and field, and the stage crew for plays and musicals. Outside of school, he played Marlton Street Hockey, Medford Youth and Athletic Association's (MYAA) Flag Football as a player and then a referee, and MYAA Baseball as a player and then as an umpire. Casey's love of sports extended to every Philadelphia sports team as well as a lifetime love for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Casey was always seen wearing sport apparel for each of these teams he loved.
John Cobb of Medford, NJ left us too soon at the young age of 49.
For those of you who knew John, you understand the importance family, community, and baseball had in his life. He was a selfless man who always wanted to do so much to help others, and he touched so many people’s lives.
John’s passion was supporting the Medford Baseball Program, and John was the leader of all things baseball in Medford. John was an active participant and lead organizer of the “Buddy Ball” program. “Buddy Ball” is a local program that gives special needs children from all across South Jersey the opportunity to play baseball along side a local high school baseball player.
John was also a key contributor to the Medford Killer “B” Baseball Tournament, which has helped raise money for the Medford baseball program for years. John’s hard work and dedication made it possible for every baseball player in Medford to enjoy years of fun and enjoyment on the baseball diamond.
Our goal is to thank and remember John every time kids play baseball, whether it’s a Medford team playing a home game, a visiting team playing in the newly dedicated John Cobb Memorial “Killer B” Tournament or a special needs child playing “Buddy Ball”.
