Jay Pekelder Recovery Fund

On September 3, while on his way home from his shift at Lagunitas to pick up his sons, Jason was involved in a very serious car accident with a semi.  He was air lifted to Good Samaritan hospital, where he has remained in critical care.  His family feels very lucky he is alive and making strong gains!  However, there is a long road ahead, as he suffered a shattered elbow, skull fractures, facial fractures, rib fractures and deep lung bruising.  

Jason has been in critical care on a ventilator and with a feeding tube.

 Jason, his wife Kelly and their three boys Brody (8), Liam (6) and Kellen (21 mos) face a long road ahead, but we're confident they'll handle each step successfully as a family, with the support (financial, emotional, etc) from all of us!

 Any amount donated to the family will be extremely appreciated, along with continued prayers and warm wishes. 

The Pekelder Family.
