Donate to help the Ascaridis family

The unexpected passing of Matt to a senseless act of violence has been devastating to those who knew and loved him. Matt was an incredible husband to the love of his life, Darci and a loving and devoted father to Alex & Ivy. He was a kind, hard-working, salt-of-the-earth guy who always greeted friends and family with his warmth and a smile.

If you are a parent or a spouse, the thought of facing a future alone is unimaginable. Even if you didn't know Matt, please take this opportunity to make a difference in the life of a family that deserves it.

While nothing can change the heartache we all are feeling, we know many of you are looking for a way to help. We aim to take as much financial burden off Darci as possible as she learns to navigate life without her Matt. All donations will go to help provide for Alex & Ivy’s future in the way that Matt would have done.

Darci, Alex & Ivy are all so grateful for the outpouring of love and support they have received. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts on behalf of the Ascaridis family.

With Love & Gratitude, Jamie Stronberg & Lisa Zaslavsky
