Marburger Family Healing

Donation protected
Update January 14, 2024: Although the news has not fully set in yet, Dan Marburger gave the ultimate sacrifice. After 10 days, he lost his battle and this tragedy took his life. Although Dan is no longer fighting with us here, his family will continue to deal with the unfathomable for many days, week, and years to come. All of the Marburger family and the entire Perry Community will forever be touched by the selflessness of Mr. Marburger. This GoFundMe will continue to be used for the Marburger family as they process through and live out Dan's legacy.

Dan Marburger is more than the Perry High School Principal. Dan is a husband, a father, a grandpa, a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, and a friend who lives and breathes for his family. Being the principal at Perry High School since 1995, also means that Dan's family includes those who have ever walked the halls of Perry High School. The love and admiration he has for any current and former students and staff characterizes the pride that Dan has for his building

Dan endured significant injuries in the tragic events at Perry High School on Thursday January 4, putting himself in harms way to ensure as many students and staff could safely exit the building. While his biggest priority right now is healing, the family is facing the reality that things in the Marburger family may never look the same. This GoFundMe is created in an effort to take one thing off of their plate so that they can focus on caring for Dan and his healing. All donations will go directly to the Marburger Family for immediate medical costs, but also for the long road of healing in the days, weeks, and years ahead.
