Michele Daschbach (21 May 1964 - 12 October 2011) was an American swimmer who grew up in Atherton, California and was the youngest of six children. The University of California Santa Barbara graduate met her husband Patrick in college and later moved to Seal Beach where they raised their 3 children: Patrick, Laura, and Lisa.

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. She was killed by a mass murderer in a beauty salon in Seal Beach on 12 October 2011.

The Michele Daschbach Fast Memorial Ocean Swim is a point-to-point ocean swim and tribute to Fast that is also a charity swim in support of the SmileTrain on 10 August 2013 from Sunset Beach to Seal Beach. The 2016 charity swim organized by her brother Rooney Daschbach benefits the Wounded Warrior Project.
