Jeff Schroders Soldiers

While doing what he loves, Jeff suffered a heart attack officiating a basketball game on December 30. Jeff was working with 2 of his many officating buddies
(Levi Pearson & Jim Rickets Jr.) at SW MN State in Marshall, MN.  With about 15 minutes left in the second half Jeff's heart stopped and he fell to the floor. Medical personal from SW MN State and Wayne State, Ne., along with a doctor who was attending the game, were on the court immediately and attended to Jeff. They did CPR and brought Jeff back to life. He was later air lifted to Sanford Health in Sioux Falls and under went open heart surgery on Jan 2, 2018. Everything went well.

We are raising money to help Jeff and Larissa cover medical and family living expenses over the next several months. If you are able and find it in your heart, all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
