Nate Danneman Memorial Fund



On April 19th heaven gained a great one to roam its sideline.  Nate Danneman, most of you know him as Coach Danneman.  A devoted husband to Tabitha and father to two sweet and sometimes sassy daughters.  As the Head Football Coach for West Platte High School Nate was an influential pillar who instilled discipline, passion, and courage to young men.  Coach Danneman was a masterful game planner and that is why I am here writing this today.  There are no game plans in life that can prep you for an event such as this tragedy. 

            At the age of 37 Nate was killed when a semi-truck crossed the median and struck his car on I29 just south of his home.  Nates four year old daughter was in the back seat and survived with only a few scratches.  I write this knowing that there is going to be many tough hours, days, and years ahead both emotionally and financially.  I ask for the help of friends, family, and the football community to surround Tabitha, Tayban and Maybree with support and ease the pain and uncertainty they are experiencing.  As we all know the hole left by the loss of such a wonderful individual will never be filled, your compassion and assistance will be much appreciated.

 

Thank You All,

 

Jake Danneman
