Jagadeesh Koppanati's Funeral & Overseas Fund

Shedding light to the sorrowful and unbearable death of Jagadeesh Koppanati...
On Saturday (July 18th, 2020), 27-year old Jagadeesh was found unconscious and unresponsive at Cedar Grove Beach in New Dorp, Staten Island. The police and medical examiners are still investigating to determine if his death was accidental or suicide. After recently hearing this dreadful news, friends and families are devastated and mourning the passing of their cherished and most beloved Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesh, the only breadwinner of his family, after finishing his education in India, came to America to work as an engineer. He was a hardworking and determined boy, whose sole and eager goal was to make a living for his family, who work minimum wage jobs and are not financially strong. He was a warmhearted friend, a loyal son ,and a very adored brother.

We are asking for your help to raise enough funds and donate as much as you can to send Jagadeesh's body to India to perform his last rites and also to support his family, so they are not burdened with financial worries while grieving their son. Big or small, any amount is accepted and appreciated. Together, we can all donate and help.
