In brief: No

Coronary heart disease is not an infection so it is not contagious.
However, people who live together often have similar lifestyles so a previously health person living with someone who has an unhealthy lifestyle (poor diet, lack of exercise, stress) may also develop coronary heart (artery) disease through detrimental lifestyle changes.
