James Tinsman Final Expenses Fund

In the early morning hours of Tuesday, July 18th, 2017, my older brother, James Tinsman, was found bleeding and unconscious from a head injury. He never regained consciousness and succumbed to his injuries that evening at 5:45 PM.

He was a wonderful brother, son, and most importantly, father. His daughter, Kaytlyn, is his pride and joy, and rightly so. She lived with her father and they were very close. As a young student, she relied heavily upon him financially.This horrible and sudden tragedy has left her devastated with her loss, as well as in a very precarious financial situation.

While our family is with her, and her father worked hard to provide for her responsibly, with such a sudden and terrible tragedy there are always expenses that one as young as James could not have thought he would to have prepare so soon.

We have not yet had to time to gather all resources and know precisely where she will be financially during this painful time, we do know that immediate living expenses, bills, and funeral expenses will inevitably require attention, sooner rather than later.

Any help that anyone can render to the family, primarily his daugher, will be greatly appreciated.
