Jarod Nandin’s Memorial Fund

Today we lost a brother and to a mother, a son. A man who touched so, so many in the cosplay community by his contagious laugh and kindness. He was a proponent for body positivity, encouraging people to dress up as whatever character they wanted to.

He was like a brother to me and I want to make sure his mom never, ever has to worry about any out of pocket expenses. Lets honor his mother’s wishes to have her son & belongings retuned to her. 

I know a lot of you knew him whether it was from anime conventions or cosplay forums, to online gaming.

The greatest loot we could ever hope for in our adventures and dungeon raids wasn’t locked inside a treasure chest after defeating an end boss, but the friendships we gained along the way there.

You are loved and you are sorely missed.  Watch over us, wherever you are.
