Help for Lex Kogan’s Family

Lex Kogan passed away Christmas morning in Costa Rica in a tragic car accident near his home.  Amidst our shock, grief, and heartache, we find ourselves looking at the aftermath through the eyes of Lex and hoping to honor his values and also help his family. He left behind his wife and two children, ages three-years and three-weeks old.  We know that while Lex would not have wanted to ask for help publicly, he would deeply appreciate support for his family who are in need of financial assistance during this transitional time. 

Lex has impacted so many lives through his work, and many can attribute their healing and longevity to his care. Lex loved his family and loved taking care of “his girls.” His wife is in the complex process of rebuilding her life in order to raise her children as a single mother, and during this fragile time, financial support can help make a huge difference.

This GoFundMe is dedicated to insuring Lex’s family has their immediate and basic needs met including access to health care, food, moving costs, and to plant the seeds for the fundamental building blocks of a healthy future. All donations go directly to Lex’s wife and children. For everyone who has been affected by Lex and his dedication to helping others, please take a moment to consider donating to his family. 

Out of respect for the privacy of Lex ‘s family’s, we ask that you keep this GoFundMe contained only to people who knew or were impacted by Lex. I am grateful we can come together to assist in this time of need. 

We also want to honor his life through the sharing of memories and stories which will be compiled to give to his daughters.  Please get in touch with Shea: [email redacted]

Lex, you are missed and loved by so many people in this world.  Thanks for everything.
