A Lost Son: Missing Person, Brandon Jenkins

I’m setting up this GoFundMe fundraiser on behalf of Brenda Cuffy, one of my coworkers, whose son Brandon is missing. 

Brenda has demonstrated extraordinary resilience this past year working on the front lines during this pandemic as a COVID ICU Nurse.  As one of her coworkers who has witnessed so much loss already this past year, I cannot even begin to imagine the compounding pain of having to deal with a son who is missing.  

Brandon has been very active in the community.  He has volunteered hundreds of hours at the various food banks around New Haven.  He is an avid lover of animals.  At age 14 he chose to be vegan because of his passion against the cruelty of animals.  He is such a compassionate soul.  His passion is helping others.  You could always find him shoveling snow for his neighbors or going to the gym with his mom.    

Brandon was last seen on December 20th around 7am in the New Haven Connecticut Area.  He was last seen wearing a gray jacket, black boots and headphones.  He is an introvert, and a homebody so for him to leave home and not return is very unusual and alarming. 

I know Brenda appreciates everyone’s help so far with the searches, media sharing, prayers, words of comfort, and thoughtful gestures.  The purpose of this GoFundMe page is to raise the funds needed for ongoing search efforts, such as for private investigators, billboards, and flyers.  All monies will go directly to Brandon’s mom Brenda.  Any donations, no matter how big or small, are gratefully appreciated. 

We just need help to get him home.  His mom, his sister Brianna, and the rest of the family are worried and desperately need him to come home.



Thanks for you Help!
