Jon Fournier Medical & Funeral Fund

My sweet brother in law, Jon Fournier, passed away today from a massive brain aneurysm. Jon was only 46 yrs old and was one of the kindest, warmest men you would ever be lucky enough to know. It is so fitting that his beautiful family, that he loved so dearly, has made the ultimate gift of organ donation. Jon has already been matched with four people who will now live because of him. The donation specialists are working on additional matches and they tell us he may eventually live on in 25+ people. It is so, so poignant and fitting as Jon would literally give you the shirt off his back. When he went to sleep last night, he could not have known how many lives he would touch today. But I know that nothing would make him happier. Jon leaves behind his beautiful wife Holly and his three sons, JT, Nate and Eli. You have never known a man that was prouder of his family.

This photo was taken just three days ago as Jon rang in New Years Eve with his wife and his boys.  They could not know what lay before them as they laughed and celebrated together.  But in that moment, it didn't matter -- the future was not yet written and in that moment, they were together.  

Please pray for them and for the rest of our family as we say goodbye to this beautiful man that we loved so much. Godspeed, Jon. It was my honor to know you and call you brother.

As for this GoFundMe page, a friend suggested that I set it up to help Holly and the boys with the future.  I have no idea of what the medical costs will be but with emergency brain surgery followed by life support, I have to assume it will be astronomical.   if you are inclined to make a donation, it would be appreciated.  If you would prefer to offer a kind thought, a prayer or other intention on the family's behalf, that would also be greatly appreciated.  If I could ask for two more things...one, tell people that you love them every chance you get and two, consider becoming an organ donor.  Thank you all.
