Our beloved husband, father, brother and friend, Jim Burke was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in the summer of 2020 at the age of 46, and after two years, he lost his brave fight. Jim was a rare individual. A brilliantly talented chef and restaurateur, a charismatic leader, the most wonderful father and husband...smart, selfless, hysterically funny and ok, let's just say it...handsome as all get out.
Jim and his dazzling wife (partner in love, life and business), Kristina (Tina) and their two perfect kids, Dan (13) and Sadie (9), make up one of the most ridiculously adorable families you'll ever meet.
Tina, Dan and Sadie have been the most dedicated and loving support system alongside Jim throughout his illness. As a family, they rallied together after Jim's diagnosis to help fundraise for the LUNGevity Foundation and inspire people across the country. Now it's time for us to help lift up the Burkes. Please join us in donating what you can to help Tina and the kids cover the monumental medical costs of Jim's care and to help them transition into this next phase of life without Jim.
We're devastated to lose Jim and to see such a perfect little family lose their North Star. Let's celebrate Jim's life and wrap the Burke family in love.
