Remembering Dean Hersche

Dean Hersche



On June 21, 2011 at the age of 47 our Head Instructor and Founder Dean Hersche passed away. Dean was a man who changed many lives and inspired scores of students to become better people. 

Dean will forever be missed by all of his students, friends and family.


Dean was a great friend, teacher, and mentor to me. I will never be able to repay him for all that he has done for me. Meeting Dean was one of the most fortunate events in my life that I will always treasure. He was a role model and a friend who was always there for me. Through his teachings and friendship he gave me renewed purpose in life. I will never forget our time together. I miss him very much, now and forever, and will honor his memory always.

My deepest sympathy goes out to all of Dean’s family and friends, but most importantly to his loving wife Loree. She was his best friend and shining light. I wish for her all the strength and courage she needs to make it through these difficult times.

I will never forget you, Dean, and all that you have done for me.

Your dear friend,
Mark Curran
