For James Ellison

On June 4, 2016, Jim Ellison and Tammy Summers were out for a Saturday ride on their Harley Davidson.  It was a beautiful day that ended tragically.  A car pulled into  their path and Jim lost his life and Tammy was severely injured. 

Jim recently retired and was just beginning his golden years of retirement.  He had ridden motorcycles his whole life and just got this bike a couple years ago.  He, as all Harley riders, loved his bike and was looking forward to many miles of freedom bliss.

Tammy was Jim's partner, best friend and his riding companion.  She is working part-time for the same company that Jim retired from. 

These funds will help Tammy and her family memorialize Jim, cover the many medical expenses that Tammy has incurred for Emergency Room and ICU care at Swedish Hospital, and also support Tammy as she recovers from this tragic accident.

Although Tammy doesn't ask for anything, her many friends are requesting your help and assistance. If you are able, please consider giving whatever you can to Tammy and her family. Words cannot express our gratitude for your generosity. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
