My name is Joel Tarantino and I am fund raising on behalf of my best friend Jesse Gonzalez Jr. and his family.

On 3-17-19, Jesse, his father, Jesse Sr., and siblings, Alex and Josh, lost everything in an apartment fire in Barnegat, NJ. 

Thankfully, Jesse and his family have a safe place to stay but will need to completely start over.  Please consider donating to the Gonzalez family. Any contribution will help and is much appreciated.
