Chardon Shooting Victim Confirmed as Grandson of BMS Wrestling Coach
Share condolences with Domenick Iammarino and the family of Daniel Parmertor
The student killed the Chardon High School shooting has been identified by school officials as the grandson of a beloved longtime Beachwood High School wrestling coach.
Daniel Parmertor, 16, was a junior at the Auburn Career Center in Geauga County, according to WKYC. He died of gunshot wounds.
His grandfather is Domenick Iammarino, according to an email Superintendent Rich Markwardt sent to Beachwood City Schools staff, coaches and alumni this afternoon.
"He’s been in Beachwood longer than an other teacher and everyone knows Coach 'I,'" said Athletic Director Ryan Peters. "It’s a very tragic day throughout the country and in our community."
Iammarino started the Beachwood High School wrestling program in 1965, said Peters, who added that Iammarino coached his own brother at Beahwood High School. Peters coached the high school team with Iammarino for nine years.
"He's one of the most knowledgeable coaches in the country, in my opinion," Peters added.
Iammarino's been named to the Ohio Wrestling Hall of Fame and led a long, decorated career. Find more information about him at his Collinwood High School alumni page.
Iammarino is now wrestling and cross country head coach at Beachwood Middle School, and works as an instructional aid at the high school. Peters said he believes Iammarino will likely continue to coach next school year.
"This is tragic news. Please keep Dom and his family in your thoughts and prayers," wrote Peters in his email to coaches and alumni.
