Please Support Markus’ Family with Expenses

On the evening of Sunday, September 22, our very dear friend and neighbor, Markus Tarkiainen, passed on far too soon from an unexpected cardiac event. 

The world lost a devoted husband and father, an accomplished IT Professional, and a phenomenal friend and neighbor.

In the wake of this unfortunate outcome, Markus’ family is going through unimaginable pain.  Beyond this, the financial burden is weighing heavy on Jennifer at the moment.  The combination of the mounting medical bills and the funeral expenses are daunting.  We want to ease this financial burden for Jennifer so she can focus on the girls.

As we near the time of Markus’ Celebration of Life (see update), in lieu of flowers or other shows of support, would you please consider contributing (in any way you are able) to help cover expenses? 

Our support will provide Jennifer and the girls with the security they need to get through this exceptionally challenging period.
