Jacob Burris Memorial Funds

Jacob Burris passed away at the age of 27 years of age. He leaves behind two beautiful children, Elianna 7 years of age(turns 8, only 3 days after his death), and Jacob Jr.(JJ) 7 years of age. Jacob had 5 sisters, and he was the 2nd youngest child of them.

Since October of 2015, nearly 2 years, he has fought a battle that sadly came to an end on July 14th,2017. He was assulted and unfortunetly the family still does not know the true facts of what actually occured that night/early morning. His parents never left his side durring his fight, taking turns spending the night in hospitals and rehabilitation centers. Durring this time his sisters, and parents have taken care of his children and still continue to do so. 

Jacob was all about his family, and friends. He was brave, kind, caring, outgoing, and even loud and annoying sometimes, but that did not stop his family and friends to love him unconditionally. His favorite sport was football. No matter what was going on, if the Cardinals were playing, Jake had to watch it. He often purched food and went to a siblings house to have family dinner. Jacob would always help pitch in when it came to his neices and nephews birthday parties. Often he would buy the cake, or main course, and help set up the decorations. 

We would like to use the money towards memorial serices, urn keepsakes, and a headstone that will be at a local cemetary for anyone to visit. With any left over funds, we will use it for his childrens care and evan a family vacation.
