Jim Von Bampus Memorial Fund

The entire family is deeply heartbroken over the loss of Jim Von Bampus.  Affectionately referred to as JVB, he was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, friend and mentor to many.  His sudden death after a brief but extremely courageous fight with lung cancer has left us all in a state of shock.  A man of extreme faith, we know JVB is smiling down on us from Heaven, and while we are so sad to see him go we know and trust he is with the Lord and no longer suffering.

He was known for his boundless energy and electric personality, which resulted in him lighting up every room he entered.  His passion and approach towards life, his family, his friends and his career set a high bar for others to aspire to.

Jim's sudden passing has left his family in need of resources to cover his mounting hospital bills, his funeral, and the settlement of his affairs.  His wife and best friend of 33 years, Charlene, is doing everything she can with the support of her family, but she is in need of our support.

In addition to his wife Charlene, Jim is survived by his children Laura (Eric), Michael, Debbie (Arron) and Jenny. He will also be forever remembered and cherished by his five grandchildren, Austin, Corey, Amanda, Evan and Grace. Jim was predeceased by his brother Jack Von Bampus.

Please generously consider donating to JVB's memorial fund.  All funds in excess of Charlene's needs will be donated to the American Cancer Society to fund research aimed at finding a cure for this horrible disease.
