John "Sly" Sylvester

Dear Minneapolis United Family,

On 6/16/17 MU lost John Sylvester after a long struggle with ALS.  John, “Sly” to his friends, was appointed as the club’s first Girls Director of Coaching in 2008 and continued to coach until last year.  John worked with MU kids for more than 14 years.  

To compound this tragedy, at the time of John’s death his wife, Tessie, mother of his 5 and 6-year old sons Gus and Freddy, was diagnosed with a very serious form of cancer.  Tessie is 36 years old.  Please consider donating to John’s family and sharing the link below with your social network and faith community.

John was a fundamental building block of the club.  He loved the game and all the kids whose lives he touched as a director, trainer, and coach.  From him, we learned how to be better athletes…and better human beings.  We will miss you, friend.
