A.J. Krause Funeral & Family Fund

Arthur J. Krause, Jr., passed away on June 6, 2017, leaving behind his wife, Beth, and his children Damian and Christopher. AJ, as he was known by his friends, had an extensive career in the military serving with SEAL Teams 4 and 2 participating in operations in Panama, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and Somalia, and was the recipient of the Sliver and Bronze Stars as well as multiple Purple Hearts. He also served as a firefighter and EMT, and retired from the United States Marshals Service in 2006. At the time of the 9/11 incident, AJ was serving as a US Marshal and was trapped in Tower 2 for 3 days after the collapse before being rescued. The purpose of this GoFundMe account is to provide funds to assist his wife and family with funeral and other on-going expenses now that AJ is no longer with them.
