In Memory Of Jenn Ward

$19,105 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 274 people in 34 months

On the early morning of July 30, 2016, a man entered the home of Brian and Jenn Ward. This man made a conscious decision to enter this home with a gun and use that gun at its full force. At 6:20 am, and with both young children at home and fearing for their safety, Jenn approached the intruder. There was no way for her to know that she would soon breathe her last breath. Jenn Radcliffe Ward, age 36, was taken from this world in such a horrific way. Her two children Maranda, 14, and Nathan, 11, are left without their mother. And Brian, loving husband, is left without a wife. My sister, Stephani, is left without a best friend. There is no way to comprehend the pain and sorrow that is going to become a part of everyday life for so many of Jenn's loved ones. The struggles that Brian is about to face as a single father to a teenage daughter and preteen son are unfathomable. It is my hope that this can offer them some support as they embark on these new and scary waters of life.

I'm so overwhelmed by the generosity and love that has been expressed towards the Ward family! After speaking to the family tonight, I think it's only right to leave this campaign up for as long as people are willing to give. This is going to satisfy so many needs that Brian and the kids are going to have. I'll increase by another $5,000 as we near each goal! Thank you and God bless to everyone!

This is incredible! The amount of love and support for the Ward family is so wonderful! Brian, Maranda, and Nathan have a tough road ahead of them, but I know this will at least help a little! With that in mind, how about we aim for another $5,000! Thank you so very much to everyone that has donated! It means the world! God bless!

Thank you, and God Bless!

So sorry! This is so tragic. Please let me know if there will be a benefit. If I have enough notice I can donate an Afghan or baby blanket for auction.

I am so sorry for your family. There are no good words. I have worked with Joe over the years, and just recently was made aware of this by staff at Hixwood Metals. Prayers for your family, that you may find peace in the promise of your faith.
