Jaime Martinez Legacy Fund

Jaime Martinez passed away suddenly late Monday evening, November 27, at the age of 40. He was a loving friend and collaborator who left this world all too soon. 

A multi-talented artist, Jaime passed away after a short spell of illness. He entered the hospital in Melbourne, FL on November 15 and was in MICU where he was diagnosed with acute organ failure. He was released from the hospital on November 22, and succumbed five days later. He leaves behind his wife, Devon, and twin 6-year-old sons, Xavier and Lucas. 

Aso surviving are Jaime's father, Major Jimmie Martinez, eldest sister Michelle and older brother Jimmie who all reside in Texas.

Where will my contribution go?
This fundraiser is being launched to help fund uncovered medical expenses and funeral costs. Any remaining funds will go towards setting up a trust fund to help defray educational costs that will help keep Xavier and Lucas on the path to success.

We aim to raise a total of $40,000 as a token of our appreciation for a lion hearted and kind man we have known for so many years. His sudden passing has caught us all by surprise.

How can I help?
Loved by many, Jaime was full of life. Although we are in shock, help us turn this time of tragedy into a time to celebrate Jaime’s life. We understand that there are a lot of Jaime’s friends around the country that knew him well and loved him like a brother that can’t make the memorial but would like to contribute. 

Please donate if you can. Any donation will be greatly appreciated and no donation is too small. But more importantly, please spread the word by sharing this GoFundMe on Facebook and with your social network as it would mean so much.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and support of Jaime Martinez's family at this difficult time.
