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.

UPDATE: Jon Meis released a statement today urging future donations go toward the victims at Seattle Pacific University. This page will remain live for those who wish to show their support, but donations have been turned off, in order to honor Jon's wishes.

Here is the link to Jon's statement: http://spu.edu/about-spu/press-room/Press/statement-from-jon-meis

Here is the link to Seattle Pacific's support page: https://give.spu.edu/

The support you have all shown remains to be overwhelming and inspiring.

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
