Jon "Yish" Engler Memorial Fund

41 year old, loving father and husband, Jon "Yish" Engler, passed away on August 30th, 2017. Jon leaves behind a wife (Erin Engler), and 3 young children (Cavi 5, Patrick 3, and Liam 1). Jon touched a lot of people's lives in his community, and the loss will be felt by many. Erin, a stay at home mother, would appreciate any support that you can provide. Jon's death comes as a shock to all of us, and nobody can ever be fully prepared for the passing of a loved one, especially one with as big of an impact as a father to 3 young children, and devoted husband to a wife. We are asking for your donations to help with the costs of wake and funeral arrangements. Any amount helps, and your money would go towards supporting a great family, who have been through a life changing, traumatic experience.

Thank you, and God bless.
