My brother in law worked over 24 hours straight as a first-responding fireman in Columbia County during winter storm Pax, answering calls through the day and into the night and into the day again. When he finally got home at the end of his shift which ended on his 40th birthday, he discovered his home ransacked. While he was keeping our community safe, taking a record 360 calls in 24 hours, thieves climbed through his son's window and took all his hunting gear, including family heirloom antique rifles, his brand new birthday-gift TV, his son's PS4, his stereo, his computer and computer desk, among other things including stuff like his fireman's ring and Rayban sunglasses. His family pictures were knocked off the walls and even his fridge was raided; he found half-eaten sandwiches and open soda cans littered about.
Tragically, he does not have renter's insurance.

Our fervent hope is that our community will help us rally and restore some of his belongings, but more importantly, his sense of security and faith in the human spirit.

From our hearts, thank you for your help.

Thank you to all our kind supporters! We're going to close the page to donations. You helped us make a tangible difference and we're looking forward to sharing the funds with Jeff and his new fiance. We're overcome by your generosity and so, so grateful.

I don't have any new updates on the investigation, but will certainly post them as things pan out. We may never get the answers we're looking for, but maybe we don't need them. Afterall, we have all of you! Thank you, from our hearts.

I hear Jeff was featured on Kicks 99 for about 30 minutes this morning, although sadly I missed the coverage. Thanks to all who made their way here after after hearing Jeff's story on the radio.

An heirloom rifle that was used in the civil war was stolen from us many years ago, so I can certainly sympathize. I hope they find the slimeballs who did this.
