Union mourns death of assistant softball coach
JACKSON, Tenn. — Rachel Glazebrook, assistant softball coach at Union University, was found dead in her home Wednesday morning.
Police found no evidence of foul play. Her body will be taken to Nashville for an autopsy.
“We grieve the passing of Coach Glazebrook and offer our sincerest condolences to her family, friends and the Union softball team,” Union President Samuel W. “Dub” Oliver said. “Rachel lived her life for Christ, and we take comfort in knowing that she is now in the presence of the Savior. I ask the entire Union community to be in prayer for Rachel’s family, friends, fellow coaches and student athletes in the days ahead.”

She is the daughter of Bob and Sharon Glazebrook and a native of Greenville, South Carolina.
