Jonathon Kern Memorial Fund

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we are sending out this plea for support.   On Saturday, September 22nd our beloved Jonathon Kern, 27, was murdered in Cotopaxi, Colorado.  

Words are inadequate to convey how devastated Jonathon's Mother, family, & friends are at this time.  Compounding the family's agony is the financial component.  Unfortunately, Jonathon was a private contractor and had no life insurance.  Because the family will have to transport Jonathon back to Indiana for burial after a small service in Colorado, the expenses will exceed $10,000.  An amount that the family can't afford to pay.

If we can just find 200 angels out there that can donate $50.00, we can relieve the family of this financial burden.  It is our hope that we can allow them the to grieve this tremendous loss without the added stress of figuring out how to pay for the memorial expenses and burial. You can also help by sharing this with as many people as possible.

Jonathon was an incredible guy who loved his friends and family so much.  He was an avid Harley rider who loved the outdoors and spent much of his free time Hunting, Fishing, and Kayaking.  He loved Colorado and everything it had to offer.

Please keep all of his friends and family in your prayers.   Thank you so much for taking the time to share this and help.  Any donation...even $5.00 will get us closer to our goal.

All funds will go directly to Jonathon's Mother Ellen and Aunt Amy for all Memorial Expenses.
