The Williamson Family Fund

Ian was an inspiration to so many. So many students whose path he helped shape. To his friends, for whom he always had time for. To his family, he was the son and brother and the father/husband that they made him to be. His zest for life was infectious to those around him. He dedicated so much to his family and his community. He helped shape our future scientists and leaders through kindness and understanding as well as his brilliance. Ian taught us all so much without ever asking for anything in return. He was truly selfless in his dedication to others. I hope now, we can come together for him and his family, the way he was always there for us. It's the least we could do. I know he wouldn't want to accept this kind of charity, but we all know he would have done for us to help out. I know this is a lot to ask.....so please, if you can, let's pull together and help Jehann (Jay) and Kieran  out during this time. Ian, will truly be forever missed. We were blessed to have him in our lives and his legacy will live on through each and every one of us, in our own way. Thank you.....PS. I know the $1,000,000 is steep....I didn't know what an appropriate amount would be to ask for. So as I was thinking, I was reminded of one of Ian's all time favorite movies, Austin Powers....so naturally....I had to at least try. Yeah baby!
