Max Soviak Memorial Fund

My name is Jason Garza, I am a friend of the Soviak family. It’s made national news by now, but we all know that sadly Max Soviak was killed in the Kabul airport attack in Afghanistan. His family is going through much turmoil and grief so we wanted to start this fund in honor of Max and his family, to help with everything financial so they can focus on their family during this time of need.


Max was an Corpsman in the U.S. Navy who dreamed of being in the service since he was a child. Proudly serving his country while deployed, helping others throughout his career. He was always passionate about helping his fellow Americans and helping get those home safely during the evacuation of Afghanistan after its fall. Kip spoke often of his children, he was very proud of Max when he spoke of him and the things his son has accomplished.


Kip and Rachel Soviak, Max’s parents are well known in the surrounding community in Milan, Ohio. Proud supporters of their children who attended Edison. They are foster parents and have adopted several children throughout their lives. Kip and Rachel have always helped me, my family, and others throughout their lives with no expectation of gratitude. I myself have worked with Kip for years as a critical care RN, I want this fund to care for him and his family as he has done throughout his nursing career for all of his patients.


I will be attempting to reach out to news outlets to connect them here. Family and friends, please feel free to edit or add to Max’s story as you see fit.
