Jim Ellison Memorial Fund

Jim Ellison left us on Saturday, September 9, 2017. He leaves behind an incredible legacy as an expert horseman, loving husband, dear brother and dedicated father. His passing marks the end of a lifetime of hard work and dedication to the sport of harness racing, and his experience and passion touched many.  He leaves behind a beloved wife, who faces a major transition. To assist with these expenses as well as those related to his funeral, we set up this fund. 

Any funds additional to our goal will be sent to the American Standardbred Adoption Program, a charity of Jim's choice. 

Please join us in honoring Jim's memory on Sunday, September 17, 2017.The wake will begin at 11 A.M. and continue through 3 P.M. followed by a service. We hope you'll be present to share in the love Jim left behind, and if unable to attend, know that you'll be there in spirit as we remember a truly wonderful life.

With love,

Charlie (brother & family,
Brian (son) & his girlfriend, Kara
