RIP Jay Robinson - Help Katelyn

Close to midnight on February 23rd, 2014, the lives of many people changed forever.  Javan "Jay" Robinson, the love of Katelyn Kagans' life and soon to be father of Jordan, their son due to be born any day now, was tragically killed.  Jay, after working that evening, came home and decided to walk to the local supermarket for a snack for himself and Katelyn as he often did.  While standing on the side of Rt. 46 waiting to cross the road, he was hit by a drunk driver and killed instantly.  Needless to say, Katelyn and all of Jays family and friends are devastated.  We will all miss Jay and his fantastic personality.  As many people have said, Jay had a way of lighting up the room. 

Katelyn and Jay were so incredibly excited to welcome their son Jordan into their lives.  Katelyn's facebook page shows hundreds of pictures and videos of them both enjoying Katelyns pregnancy and the excitement was contagious.  Sadly, Katelyn now only has those pictures and her memories.

Katelyn needs all of our support.   Not only did she lose the love of her life, she also lost the financial and emotional support of the father of her child.  Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated as Katelyn starts her journey as not only a new mom, but because of the careless decisions of a stranger, a single mom. 

It is very sad that Jordan will never have the priveledge of knowing Jay, his daddy.
