In Loving Memory of Yoni Bradin

Yonatan (Yoni) Bradin passed away on April 20, 2020 after a month-long battle with COVID-19 in the ICU at Stony Brook University Hospital. He was only 36 years old, and leaves behind his incredibly courageous wife Jennifer and their two beautiful children, daughter Bella, age 3 and son Noah, age 1. Yoni was a dear friend and colleague to many of us.  He was a loyal son, devoted father, loving brother and beloved husband. Yoni was loved by everyone who knew him and will be terribly missed.

While many of us have our own Yoni story, mine began 11 years ago when we both started working at ADP only a few months apart. We have been extremely close since.  Whether you knew him or not, Yoni had tremendous passion and dedication for many things in life - his love of cooking, craft beer, cars and the occasional "shvitz" (Yiddish for sauna), made even more special when shared with those he loved. He loved to travel both near and far, whether it was a weekend getaway at Kalahari in the Poconos or to visit family in Israel. He greeted everyone he met like he had known you for 20 years, ALWAYS with a big smile.

At this time, we would like to support Jenn, Bella and Noah in the most fitting manner possible as we continue, as a community, to power through this devastating COVID-19 pandemic. For those looking to offer their support to Yoni's family, we ask that you consider making a donation to this GoFundMe campaign, and encourage you to please share with your network of friends & family. We realize that offering financial support to the Bradin family during this uncertain time may be difficult for some. Please know that any amount is appreciated tremendously as we work closer to reaching our fundraising goal. Funds raised will be used as follows:

First $50,000: to cover funeral costs, medical bills and other misc. cost of living expenses
Second $50,000 (updated to $75,000): to cover educational aspirations for daughter Bella
Third $50,000 (updated to $75,000): to cover educational aspirations for son Noah

Thank you all. Please stay healthy and safe. We are all in this together.
