Jimmy K.'s Memorial Fund

Our hearts are broken, and we are shaken to our core by the sudden, unexpected, devastating loss of our dear friend and loved one, James "Jimmy" Kosaka.  Whether he was your brother, your co-worker, your best friend, or a member of your extended family, we all will remember Jimmy for his sense of humor, infectious laugh, selflessness, kindness, and generosity.  We will also remember him for his undying love of golf, animals, good food, and the Seahawks.  No doubt, we will all be hard-pressed to find a more loyal and reliable friend than Jimmy.  Whenever anyone needed anything, whether it was a ride, a smile, a shoulder to cry on, a friend to talk to, a golfing partner, or a dinner partner, Jimmy was there in a heartbeat, without fail... no matter how late it was, or whether or not it was "convenient" for him.  On the morning of Tuesday, March 6th, 2018, tragedy struck, and we lost our dear friend.  There are no words to express how much he will be missed by those of us who were fortunate enough to have him in our lives.


While he may no longer walk the Earth with us in corporial form, the memories and kindness he left us with will live on forever in our hearts.  We are in the process of planning a memorial service and celebration of life for Jimmy, where we all can honor him by sharing the impacts he made in all of our lives.  Since Jimmy always loved treating his friends and family to a good meal, in his memory, we would like to have the wake at one of his favorite restaurants, immediately following the memorial service.  We will let all of his friends and loved ones (including you!) know as soon as we have the details, and hope you can join us for this celebration of Jimmy's life!

As you may know, there are substantial costs involved with cremation and memorial services, which is why we set up this GoFundMe.  Your generous contribution will go toward the expenses of the cremation and memorial service, and wake, and will help ease the financial burden to us during this emotionally-difficult time.  Any excess funds raised will be donated to a highly-reputable local pet shelter (TBD), in Jimmy's name.  Thank you in advance for your generosity and kindness.
