Jogger hit by car remembered for electric spirit

FRUITPORT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Friends and family are remembering a mother and educator who was hit by a car and killed while jogging as simply charismatic.

Courtney Frazine’s brother Carson Cooper told 24 Hour News 8 she was like a battery. He said she had so much energy it was contagious and you couldn’t help but be happy around her. He likened her positive attitude to catching a cold, saying it spread quickly.

Frazine also had a knack for making friends.

“She could go in anywhere and come out with 10 new friends,” Sarah Ruter, one of those friends, said.

Friends say she was motivated to be active, both in terms of fitness and in her dedication to her two kids.

“She was nonstop,” Ruter said. “Like when she set her mind to something, she just like went 100 miles per hour.”

On Saturday — her 40th birthday, family members say — Frazine was out for a jog near the intersection of Pontaluna Road and North Point Drive in Fruitport Township when an 18-year-old driver lost control of her car, hitting Frazine. She died at the scene.

Cooper said the family feels no malice toward the driver because that’s not what Frazine would’ve wanted.
