Jacob Bongero Memorial Fund

On Sunday September 24th at 12:00p my brotherJacob Ardell Bongero passed away due to liver and kidney complications at Manatee Memorial Hospital. Jacob was 32 years old.

Jacob was the beloved Grandson of Jack and Johanne Bongero, son of John and Denise Bongero,  Brother of Brian and Keven Johnston and Ben Bongero, Husband to Jaime Yeoman and Suzi Bongero, Father to  Rhett Greer, Riley Bongero and Gavin Bongero.

Jacob spent the last 14 years serving our Country with the United States Coast Guard as an aviononics electrical technician where he made it to level E6.

The purpose of this  gofund me page is to raise money for transporting and Jake back to Southfield Michigan to be buried next to his Grandfather Jack Bongero  at Holy Sepulchre Catholic cemetary as this was his final wish.  

Also, Jake leaves behind his three children Rhett, Riley and Gavin.  All money raised over and above will go to supporting them going forward.

Please add any stories or pictures you might have with Jake. We would love to hear them.

Thank you very much for any donations you can make.
