If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you know that in the early morning hours of February 27th, my 26 year old niece, Jessica, had a severe asthma attack and was not able to be revived. Jessica’s siblings have set up a fundraiser for their mom to help cover funeral expenses for Jessica. If you would like to contribute – or are able to contribute – you can do so by clicking the link below.

If you are able to contribute, any amount will help Jessica’s mom (my wife’s sister) tremendously. Here is Jessica’s fundraiser:


For everyone that has posted kind words on Facebook or re-tweeted my announcement about this, I thank you, my wife thanks you and Jessica’s two sisters, her brother and especially her mother thank you from the bottom of all our hearts. And although he’s way too young to know what has happened, Jessica’s 2-year old son thanks you as well.

Everyone’s kind words are so greatly appreciated – and will continue to be appreciated. For a long time to come.
