As many of you know, this past October, Antony Jackson, a vital and giving member of the Busan Expat Community for 20 years, passed away suddenly, leaving behind a legacy of creativity and friendship as well as a loving wife, Yeo Ju,  son, Tae Bin, and family and friends throughout the world.   

He had particularly close ties to the KSU and Gwangan areas of Busan as a frequent organizer, participant, and attendee of so many of the events that have been held over the years--his Halloween costumes were legendary, his trivia teams won more often than they lost, and he had a willing ear and sage (but blunt) advice for everyone he met. Our community is going to miss his presence tremendously. 

Antony passed away at a relatively young age, and his plans of working to support his family and to put his son through university are gone. Tae Bin is an aspiring graphic artist who plans to develop his craft at Sheridan College, Canada in 2020. He will work and apply for scholarships, but we would like to help him and his mother out this holiday season through this fundraiser in memory of Antony.

Hello Everyone:

We laughed and cried as we remembered Antony as we held a memorial in HQ. I'd like to thank all those who came and shared their memories privately and publicly.

It was so wonderful to feel the loving sentiment and camaraderie with so many.

Special thanks to Jeff Lebow and Bradley Mcmaster (for logistics and support), John Myrex (for hosting the event), and Kenneth May (for organizing the presenters in such a tasteful fashion).

We have moved closer to our goal of 20,000 with the funds raised last night. We are now at almost 15% of the goal when the GoFundMe campaign and the local fundraising are combined.

Please share this post and encourage those unable to come to contribute via GoFundMe . Its is so simple to contribute. Just 1 click.

Merry Xmas to all...

Sinerely,

Denis

Hello Everyone:

We have had a good weekend! On Friday December 14th, We had a poker run fund raiser whereby we raised about $500.00.

Combined with the GoFundMe campaign, we have raised $1000.00! A great beginning. We are 1/20th of the way there! I'd like to thank everyone for their contributions of time and fundraising.

Please continue to spread the word so that we may achieve our goal!

Sincerely,

Denis Parnell
