Blessings for Ashley Cochrane

On Monday March 19th Christopher Cochrane was unexpectedly taken home to be with the Lord. At only 36 years old, he left behind the most adoring wife, Ashley. Together, Chris and Ashley were a remarkable, marveling couple with an infectious love for one another. They brightened the lives of everyone they met, and touched people with their compassion, resilience, determination, and genuinely kind hearts.

Chris was a retired Air Force Captain who served in Special Operations during his dynamic military career. Among many other things, he was active in Wounded Warrior Project, Hunting for Healing, was an athlete who Medaled in the 2016 Warrior Games and represented the AF as an Ambassador in the 2017 Warrior Games. He unequivocally loved life and lived it to the absolute fullest of his abilities.

Many people have reached out during this distressing, heartbreaking time and asked how they can help Ashley. Through her own hesitation, but by the encouragement of others, that is how this page was created.

While the pain and heartache of losing her husband, best friend and soulmate cannot be alleviated, any blessing that you could contribute to Ashley at this time would help ease the financial burden of losing one’s spouse.
