Jessie Winterholler, 19, tragically passed away on December 7, 2012, when she was hit by a car in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  The friends of the deceased wish to alleviate any amount of financial concern from her grieving family.  The funds gained from this donation page will be used to help the Winterholler family in their time of need with any expenses incurred from this tragedy.

Donate as much as you can, or as little as you can - every bit counts.  Whether you knew her as Jessie, Epouvantail, or just an unfortunate stranger, we can all come together in this time of grief and give our aid to those who survive her.

Thank you!

Everyone - I have shut down the donations to this page. The Winterhollers think this is more than enough. They would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to everyone who donated, and I share their sentiment. Over $6000 in less than a week is a tremendous feat. Thank you so, so much for your continual support during this difficult time, and please don't forget the candlelight vigil which is being held tomorrow for Jessie on the Trenton High School football field at 6 P.M. Thank you so, so much.

Guys - we met and exceeded our $5000 goal tonight thanks to you wonderful people. We are still two days away from the funeral, though, so there's no reason to stop. Let's go for $7000 next. We raised $4000 in a single day, $1000 the next -- no one's stopping us now. Than you so much, everyone.

Less than $100 to $3k and the donations are still coming steady, literally one every 2-5 minutes. We're going to hit our next goal tonight. This is an incredible feat, you guys. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, and from the Winterhollers' hearts. To everyone who has donated, thank you. Thank you.

It's been one hour and we've more than doubled our target money. I've raised the goal to $3k now because I believe we can do it. I love you all.

Jessie was and shall always be my cousin. I was in Navy boot camp when I received the news of the tragedy that befell her. I know that she is in a better place. I just wish I would have called her more often.

I'm only sorry this couldn't be more. I'd only spoken to Jessie in her livestreams and admired her art and other talents from a distance, but she's had a profound effect on me, and I sincerely will miss seeing even the smallest updates. My heart goes out to the family of this wonderful girl, taken so soon from us. May she rest in everlasting peace, and may we soon be able to celebrate her life as easily as we mourn her passing.
