Support the Schaefer Family as they plan to celebrate the life of Denise Schaefer.

Denise left us way too soon but we hope to keep her spirit alive, especially for her little girls, Hailey and Katelyn, and her loving husband, Geoff.


Denise touched innumerable lives as a friend, teacher, coach, and mentor, so we are hoping that everyone can come together to ensure that the financial burden on her family will be as small as possible, and that Geoff will have a little less worry in the immediate future.

If you are more comfortable mailing a check instead of donating online, please make it out to Geoff Schaefer, and mail it to the following address:

I know each of you is as amazed as I am watching the love pour in for Denise and Geoff over the last couple of days.

I don't want to spam you with continuous updates, but I do want you to know that $50,000 was just an arbitrary unreachable goal when we put the site together. Please continue to share and raise awareness for Denise and Geoff and the girls.

The next goal is simply more love.

As we pass the halfway point to our stated goal after less than a day, I just wanted to point out to all of you that by participating in this outpouring of support for Denise and Geoff you are not proving the power of social media.

This proves the power of a life well lived. It proves the strength of love and friendship. Just as importantly, this reminds all of us that great educators, whether they be counselors, or teachers, or coaches, are selfless helpers whose impact ripples across the community. The power of Denise's life will continue to impact our community for a very long time.

Geoff is deeply humbled by your support, and thanks you all from the bottom of his heart.
