Michele Daschbach Fast’s Smile And Legacy Remembered

Michele Daschbach Fast made her mark on the world…a quietly positive, always inspirational legacy.

Her family and friends are honoring the swimming mother of three legacy with the Michele Daschbach Fast Memorial Ocean Swim.

The Michele Daschbach Fast Memorial Ocean Swim is a tribute to Fast who was killed by a mass murderer while waiting in a beauty salon in Seal Beach, California last year.

The event is a swim in support of her favorite charity, the SmileTrain.


Fast grew up in northern California the youngest of six children. The University of California Santa Barbara graduate met her husband in college and later moved to Seal Beach where they raised 3 children: Patrick, a senior at UC Berkeley, Laura, a freshman at UCLA, and Lisa, a junior at Los Alamitos High School.

She swam every morning in Seal Beach, touching everyone she met in and out of the water with her smile, sense of humor, compassion and selfless perspective of life.

The memorial will be held on July 7th from Sunset Beach to Seal Beach. For more information, contact Open Water Source.
