Ewout Cassee park memorial

Ewout Cassee was a beloved husband, father, friend, and leader, who passed unexpectedly on August 4 while biking.  To his family and many friends, he was known as caring and generous person who tried to live a life full of joy and celebration.  While biking, Ewout enjoyed stopping to reflect on the challenge of the ride and his enjoyment of the natural beauty around him. 

This campaign seeks to pass on that experience to others.  Donations will be used to build a memorial bench at a scenic spot on the trail at Blankets Creek bike park in Woodstock, GA.   Any extra funds will be donated to the Dutch school in Roswell, Georgia, which was also dear to his heart and the school for his children.

This Campaign is hosted by Russ Owens, a friend, coworker, and attorney.  I am from Dunwoody, Georgia.  The funds will be held in an escrow account for the benefit of the Cassee family until they use them for the memorial and Dutch school.
