Jenna Nash Memorial Fund

Dear Friends and Family, 

We are here to raise money for the family of Jenna T Nash. Jenna was a one of a kind woman who had a smile that could light up any room. Her selflessness was legendary, extending far past her own family to many different groups in many different towns (Salisbury, Concord, Asheville, Chapel Hill and more) that like to claim her as one of their own. Unfortunately, her life was cut short in a very unexpected way this past week. On Sunday, June 26th, Jenna collapsed from a pulmonary embolism, a side effect of her undiagnosed metastatic kidney cancer. After brain damage was confirmed, her family made the decision to take her off life support on June 30th. While we celebrated her life this past Saturday, we know that she can never be replaced in all our hearts.

Jenna was a beloved mother, wife, sister, cousin, and friend. She did whatever she had to do to make sure Caroline and Thurston had an amazing life. Although she did everything she could in life to support her two children and husband, there are still a few expenses that we could all cover to make this hard time in their lives a little easier. 

All proceeds will be placed in a private account for the Nash Family. Any memorial donations given will help this beautiful family with Thurston's college expenses, Thurston and Caroline's health insurance, and any unexpected expenses that will come up in the next few months. Any remaining funds will be placed in a savings account reserved for Thurston's graduate school expenses that are overwhelming and will be starting next year. Please join us in celebrating Jenna's life and honoring her legacy as a loving mother and wife.
