Judson "Jud" C. Logan

January 3, 2022


Judson “Jud” Campbell Logan (1959-2022), of North Canton, Ohio, passed away on Monday, January 3rd, 2022 due to complications related to COVID-19.

Jud achieved countless achievements throughout his life. He served 28 years as a Track and Field coach at Ashland University, including 17 years as head coach, leading the Eagles to 3 consecutive national championship titles. He was a former American record holder in the hammer throw, is the current Masters world record holder, and is a 4-time Olympian (1984, 1988, 1992, 2000). His greatest achievements though were not those of world records or championships, but how he impacted people and influenced people’s lives in such a positive way. He was larger than life and would make you feel like you were the only person in the room. He had the respect and admiration of so many. He believed in finding and then becoming a “Light Giver”, mentoring and instilling belief in those around you. Being a Light Giver is the torch of his legacy he would want all to continue passing on. 

He is survived by his loving wife, Jill (Stuffel) Logan. His son Nathan & Cheryl Logan and their children Mason, Declan, and Lofton, his daughter Jenna & Winston Ally and their children Peyton, Eloise, and Charlotte, and his daughter Kirsten Logan, who he would tell you any chance he got how proud he was of them. His mother, Gloria Logan and siblings Amy Logan Walther, Jeffrey Logan (Dena), Whitney Logan (Karen), and Andrew “Andy” Logan (Deidre). Countless athletes, friends, family, and benefactors of his light-giving.

He is preceded in death by his father, Richard Logan and his brother-in-law Carl Walther.

A private memorial service for the family is being held. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date, when it is safer to gather.

Donations in memory of Jud are requested to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society or The Logan Family Foundation.
