In Loving Memory of Jesal Patel: Supporting Ethan's Educational Journey

On Friday, December 15, we said goodbye to a cherished soul, Jesal Patel—a son, a brother, a cousin, an uncle, a friend, a coworker, a life partner, and, above all, an extraordinary father. Jesal's untimely departure has left a void in our hearts, but his legacy lives on through his greatest treasure, his son Ethan Patel.

I've had the privilege of calling Jesal one of my best friends since the early 2000s. He has been instrumental in almost every aspect of where I am in life today. Through highs and lows, we've supported each other, and I've witnessed Jesal's incredible journey of rebuilding his life after challenging times. His resilience and strength were inspiring, but his most remarkable transformation was into an exceptional father.

Ethan was Jesal's pride and joy, and their bond was a testament to the unparalleled love and devotion he poured into fatherhood. For the last five years, Jesal has been the sole provider for Ethan, ensuring that his son's every need and dreams were always the top priority in his life.

To honor Jesal's memory and secure a brighter future for Ethan, we are launching this fundraiser. Every contribution will directly support Ethan's educational expenses and provide a foundation for his adult life. Let's come together as a community to celebrate Jesal life by ensuring that the most important thing in his life, his son Ethan Patel, continues to receive the love and support he deserves.

Your generosity will make a lasting impact on Ethan's journey, echoing Jesal's spirit of resilience, love, and commitment to family.

Thank you for being a part of this meaningful endeavor.
