Jordan (bLiNd) & Jenn's House Fire

$22,434 of $125,000 goal

Raised by 209 people in 2 months


This is my wife Jennifer Westover and I (Jordan Aguirre).  We recently lost our home due to a fire .   The house is a total loss due to the excessive smoke damage and EVERYTHING in it, including my music studio, which is my means of providing.... 

We are so grateful that we are alive, but the loss of our pets is almost too much to bear.   We actually had 8 pets, even tho the article only says 4.  My wife's life are those animals as she is an avid animal lover....

Romeo, our next door neighbor, military vet, and all around amazing man and hero, pulled my best friend, Mark Entingh, out of the house while it was full of smoke, shortly after he pulled my wife and I out of the kitchen.  We were in shock after opening the garage door and smoke bellowed out into the house... Luckily Romeo's wife had already called the fire department as they saw smoke before we knew.

We remember smelling a firewood smell all day and by noon it was strong.   We figured it was neighbors running their fireplace because the day was cold and windy.  We never saw fire or even smoke near us until it was too late.  
 
The house is a total loss due to smoke damage.  The garage itself had decades worth of collectibles and memorobilia as well. Countless priceless items from Jenn's late mother were stored there.

Savings Bonds of $40K were also burned up...

My music studio which had $30-40K worth of electronics equipment, musical instruments, and memorabilia is also already considered a total loss.  Because of this fact, I have no way to make an income now because all of my equipment is gone.    

We have the clothes on our back and our family.  We thank God we are alive.

Thanks to all who supported us during this time. We are now in a temp house and our home is being rebuilt starting this next month. We should be able to go home by this fall to the end of the year. Luckily insurance is covering all the damages and this gofundme has helped me rebuild my studio so I can earn an income again.

We are eternally indebted to you all and eternally grateful.

Also attached is a picture of our fireplace mantle with all of our pet memorials (donated to us by the craig road pet cemetery so we didn't have to pay out of pocket)

<3 Jordan and Jennifer

Wanted to update everyone and just say thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. Our car is in the shop as it broke down yesterday, not sure if it's related to the damage the fire caused but luckily insurance is starting to come through now. Everyone's undying support and donations has been extremely lifting to our spirits and we can't thank you enough...

Friends and Fans have been donating gear towards a new studio for me and I am already starting to organize hard drives recovered from the rubble.. Luckily my data DID make it out but the drives themselves aren't really worthy of putting back in a machine. THANK you to everyone who donated parts too!

The animal foundation did take care of the bill for our pets, and today we have to go get their remains. Please pray for us this week. We have at least 6 months of a long road ahead of us in a temp home before we can consider going back to our address...

I will keep everyone posted, but if you do find an opportunity to share please do.

<3 Jordan and Jenn
