Support for John Blounts Family

$3,100 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 38 months
My name is Monica Shelley. I am the sister in law of John Blount. John passed away on Sunday 2/14/16 in a tragic car accident that claimed not only his life but the life of his best friend. We are trying to raise some money to help my sister Jill, his wife, and their children. Jon was the beloved father of Nathan 5 years old Emily 3 years old and step father to Troy 17 years old. These kids love and miss their father so much. The money raised on this page will go soley to their grief counseling, tuition, and college funds. John was a devoted father and would have done anything for these kids and we just want to make sure they have the future that he would have always wanted for them. Any donation would help and will be greatly appreciated.

We extend our sympathy to the entire family. We never met John, but we did get to know Jill and her kids when we stopped by.

I'm so sorry. I've from Chicago Heights, and my mom still goes to the bakery. I hope this little bit helps.
