 SIOUX CITY, IA
All,
        We are asking your help in regards to the unexpected passing and costs associated with the loss of Thomas Patterson. His family, while going through a difficult mourning process will also be facing significant costs over the next several weeks. 
        As his college wrestling coach, I recruited Tom 7 years ago. Orignially from Frostburg, MD he took no time making an immediate impact on those around him and across the Briar Cliff community here in Sioux City, IA. Tom earned his undergraduate degree in the spring of 2015 and selflessly volunteered the next year with the program." In a random conversation between him and I he said "I wish I had another year to compete with the program". To that, I let him know he did. Due to an injury his junior year he was unable to compete and essentially red shirted. Long story short, he re-enrolled at the university in an effort to bolster his criminal justice degree with a psychology degree as well as  reach his goal to become an All-American. 
      In what unfortunately served as his last selfless act, this Sunday Thomas jumped in the Missouri river to aid a stuggling team mate. He was caught in the current and hasn't been found. If you know him, can identify with the families situation, or just feel compelled to help this incredible family, please consider making a donation to our cause. 
      Thomas was loved and will be missed by many. I consider myself fortunate to have been a part of his life. Thank you for reading this and for your support.
