Justin Hakola Memorial Fund

$35,650 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 346 people in 23 months
On Monday, Apr. 10th our friend Justin Hakola passed away from a tragic accident leaving behind his partner, Sara Hansen and his 2-year-old daughter Lola. As you can imagine with this sudden and unexpected loss, there are a lot of expenses that are incurred. Any donation of any size is greatly appreciated and will be used toward any funeral expenses and for the care of his partner and Lola.

If you cannot donate please share this message and send lots of love to Sara, Lola and all of Justin's family and friends.

We lost one of our South Pas. Brothers this week. Justin was a great father, son, brother, partner and friend. 

Sara, Lola and Justin's family need our support during this time. Please donate and share.

It takes a village and we are!

From Sara and Justin’s Families:

We would like to thank this tremendous community for their gracious words, kind prayers and incredible support, both emotionally and financially.

The stories about Justin have been measurements in love, and they have empowered us with the inspiration to carry on. We want each of you to know that we are confident of this: Justin cannot be defeated by death.

He is found in the gardens that grow, the laughter we share, and the warmth we award to strangers.
As long as there is friendship in the world, as long as there is hope, as long as there is love and affection in the manner you have determined to demonstrate it, Justin Hakola will continue to exist.

May God grant you peace!
