Jessamyn McIntyre  SEATTLE, WA
On June 5th, 2014, Jon Meis successfully subdued and disarmed an active gunman on Seattle Pacific University's campus.  Seattle Police say if he didn't take action that day, there was almost certain to be more loss of life.  He and his fiance are getting married on June 21st and this page is here simply for those in the community who wish to show gratitude toward this local hero.  This couple hasn't asked for anything, but many wish to contribute to their future - here is the place to do so.

UPDATE: With the overwhelming success of this page so far, I want to let you all in on where we go from here. For those who don't know me, my name is Jessamyn McIntyre, I live in Seattle and work at 710 ESPN Seattle. I do not have a personal relationship with Jon Meis or his family, but was touched by his actions, along with all of you. I have been in contact with Seattle Pacific University, who have notified Jon and his family about your generous support. I will be working with SPU staff when the time comes to close the page. 

I am astounded by the response from Seattle, the country and around the world. You have all shown the good side of humanity.

Jon, you did an amazing thing that deserves recognition and appreciation. As much as we would all like to think we would react much the same as you did, the truth is we don't know.It's hard to know unless you are placed there, and while what happened was a complete tragedy, the world has seen the faith inherent at SPU, and the courage of its students. From a fellow Seattle Christian and SPU grad I wanted to say congratulations on a job well done! I wish you and your fiancée all the best. I'm sure it will be a beautiful wedding!

We are truly amazed by your courage to act in the face of terror but also of your integrity as a man. To show others that true service means to think of others first, no matter the situation, is an inspiration and a lesson for all of us. May G-d continue to bless you and you family and please know you have touched people, including myself, with your strength, honor and humbleness. With much love from Boston, MA

God bless you and your family. You say you are not a hero but what you did says otherwise. In the face of fear you made a choice and it was based more on the welfare of others than yourself. To me , that is what I try to teach my children , to make good choices and care for our fellow man.

Not very many people have their bravery that you showed that day. Most stand back and watch the horror take place, but not you. This is why people honor you by donating to your fund. How humble of you to stay no thank you. You're parents did an amazing job raising such a wonderful man. To your future wife, your husband is a winner, cherish him forever.
