ADRIAN  — Greg Adams, a leading advocate for mental health care services, is being remembered for his selflessness and courage after his death Sunday. 

Adams, 48, of Adrian died almost a week after being hit by a car while jogging at about 7 a.m. Feb. 7. He was jogging in the northbound lane of Howell Highway north of Oakwood Road when a northbound car struck him, the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office reported Sunday. He was transported to ProMedica Toledo Hospital where he died from his injuries. 

Adams was the founder of the annual E-race the Stigma 5K run and had recently resigned from the Lenawee Community Mental Health Authority board, where he had been chairman, after being hired by the LCMHA as a peer support specialist, his fiancee, Stefani Kozlowski, said Monday.

Adams, an advocate for mental health care, died Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022, after being hit by a car while jogging last week.

“He was thrilled to have that job,” she said.  

Everything was going well in his life. 

“He was just over the moon happy. He was so happy to be getting married. That was incredibly important to him. I mean, me, as well; for him, especially. He just really wanted that legal definer, you know, and he was excelling in his professional career. He was so happy to have found a job that was the perfect fit for him, so that he could continue to further his work to help others who had mental health issues. And at the same time, it was a professional career. You know, our lives were just really coming together just perfect.”
