Nate Coleman died in a water skiing accident on his honeymoon

An Ohio couple’s Caribbean honeymoon ended in tragedy when the pair were killed in a freak jet skiing accident just three days after they tied the knot.

Nate and Marianna Coleman, of Steubenville, were married Oct. 28 and traveled to St. Lucia, where he died three days later, according to the GoFundMe page.

“Nate was an amazing husband, friend, son and brother in Christ,” the page said.

No further details were provided about the accident.

The newlywed groom was a graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville, WFLA reported.

“He was able to thoughtfully interview everyone he met, and those who were blessed to have a relationship with him will be able to tell a list of stories detailing what a fun, kind, and adventurous spirit he was. The GoFundMe page states that Nate tragically lost his life three days after his wedding.

“Donations will help cover expenses for last-minute plane tickets to St. Lucia and back home, immediate passport issuance, transportation, lodging, meals, funeral arrangements, Mariana’s needs, and anything else that may come up,” a second GoFundMe page says. .

“Please also pray for the families, for their strength, and for God’s presence to fill their hearts,” the fundraiser said.

The two accounts had raised more than $100,000 combined by Tuesday morning.

Nate’s mother, Heather Coleman, wrote on Facebook last week that she was traveling to St. Lucia after her son was “in the arms of Jesus.”

“Nate’s death took us all by surprise and took our breath away,” she wrote. “Thank God, we are fine. It is very difficult and painful, but we move on every day, moment by moment.”

Heather wrote that her faith was helping her and her family overcome distress.

“I am sad that Nathaniel is no longer here with us, but I know he is alive in heaven and will be praying for us,” she wrote.

“Please keep us in your prayers as we bring Nate home,” she added in her final post.
