Funds for Jackie Lithgow and Don Hoover

Jackie Lithgow and Donald Hoover, both 19 and Bloomsburg University students, were seriously injured on February 23, 2014 in an unprovoked attack.  Still in a coma, Jackie remains in very critical condition.  If Jackie survives, his injuries and recover will take months and years.  Donald's injuries will also take months to heal. 

We are friends and classmates of Jim and Lisa Lithgow, the parents of Jackie Lithgow. We are respectfully raising funds for the expenses both students will incur as a result of this terrible attack.  Received funds will be distributed in proportion to injuries and medical bills.  In the event we receive any excess funds, those funds will be used to help end campus violence against students in Bloomsburg, PA in the names of Jackie Lithgow and Don Hoover. 

Four friends and classmates will oversee the collection and proper disbursement of all received funds. Robert Emert, CPA; Dr. Jeffry Nietz, Kelly Lewis, JD/MBA, and Aaron Roetenberg.  Donors will receive an accounting of all received and disbursed funds.

Funds will be quickly distributed to the parents of Jackie Lithgow and Don Hoover.  

Donors may also send checks to "Jim & Lisa Lithgow," c/o Emert & Associates, CPAs, 131 East Main Street, Lock Haven, PA 17745. or call Robert Emert, II, CPA at [phone redacted]
