It's Julie here again. Just wanted to give another HUGE thank you to you all who have supported Jennifer and Cecilia through your generous donations. At this time, we are no longer accepting donations on this GoFundMe site. However, if you still feel compelled to make a contribution, there are a couple ways to still help. We still have a PO Box set up:
PO Box 665
Danville, IN 46122
Also, there is a memorial fund set up with PNC Bank and donations can be made at any PNC branch. The fund is called the Trapuzzano Memorial Fund.
Hello all. This is Julie, Jennifer's younger sister. Just wanted to give you all an update. Cecilia Marie was born on Friday, April 25!!
Mom and Baby are doing great. Our family just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your extremely generous donations for Cecilia. Please continue to keep us all in your thoughts and prayers!
This is a very sweet well written article with the first interview Jennifer did. It tells their beautiful story. "He knew when I told him I loved him that meant I wanted to marry him. I had feelings for him, but I wanted it to be a conscious decision, like, I am choosing to love you and I am choosing to love you forever, not just because I feel something for you today, but because I am going to feel something for the rest of my life."
Today my family lays Nathan to rest. Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers today. The pain my cousin and family is going through is unimaginable. I love you Jennifer, Rest in peace Nathan.
Another very touching update: the Indianapolis Colts have reached out to our family to offer their condolences and offer any form of help they can provide. HoosierStrong! What an incredible NFL program to reach out to a hurting family. We continue to thank every single person for theirs prayers, thoughts, help, and endless forms of aid to our family during this time. It's amazing to see friends, relatives, and complete strangers come together in support.
I am at a loss of words to how many people have reached out to myself and my family in our time of need. Thank you to everyone for your constant prayers, thoughts, kind words, and other forms of help and donations. Several of you have reached out to me about raising the gofundme goal. Jennifer and her direct family have decided to keep it at a set 100,000. That is an incredible amount in a 24 hour period. Of course any donations above this amount are just a continued blessing. Thank you again to every single person, friend, relative, stranger, mother, father, and so many more who have helped support this family in such a terrible tragedy.
On the morning of April 1st, 2014 God received another angel. Nathan Trapuzzano was on his morning walk when he was mugged, shot, and killed by three men. Nathan leaves behind a beautiful newly wed wife Jennifer Trapuzzano who is also due with their first child next month. Please consider assisting the family in donating towards his funeral-related expenses. Anything left over from the funeral expenses will go towards their child. Jennifer is also currently a full time student in PA school. In the next months they were to celebrate his 25th birthday, a one year anniversary, and the birth of their first child. Any contribution is greatly appreciated...He will be loved always, greatly missed, and never forgotten.
For anyone wanting to send cards, condolences, or personal donations we have set up a PO box: Jennifer Trapuzzano P.O. Box 665 Danville, IN 46122
***For those not comfortable with an online donation an alternative fund has been established at PNC bank-- called the Trapuzzano Memorial Fund***
