My name is Jake Mizell. We are organizing this gofundme for T.J. Antell, who was fatally shot on May 2, 2016. T.J. was a Husband, a father and a great coach. He is survived by his wife Crystal, and their three children; the oldest Hayden, followed by Rilee and Liam.
T.J. was a Marine and was the owner and head coach of CrossFit Abattoir in Arlington, Texas. Currently, the gym is in the process of starting a second location, CrossFit Abattoir West.
The money will be used to help with any memorial needs the family may have, as well as any help needed at the gym. As I mentioned, they are in process of adding a second location, however it is not yet completed. The funds are needed ASAP to show support for this family.
This means so much to me, because I am a CrossFit gym owner in Arlington as well. The CrossFit community is very tight knit, and I would like for everyone to take this opportunity to be able to give back to someone who did so much for his members on a daily basis. If we rally together, we can show others just how thankful we are for T.J.
