It saddens us to announce the untimely death of Nathan Jolly - a father, a son, a brother, an uncle & beloved friend to many. He was only 33 years old & yet his medical team attributed his death Friday, November 10th - to be of natural causes - resulting from sudden cardiac arrest. An autopsy has been ordered in hopes of pinpointing a specific cause and additional medical answers.
Nathan leaves behind 3 young boys - Landen (11yrs), Brennen (10yrs) & Xander (7yrs). They love their Daddy very much and already miss him dearly. Tragically, these boys also lost their mommy to cancer in 2015.
As one can imagine , they have had some challenges the last 2 years adjusting to life without their mother - but have been strong and resilient little boys. They now face the added emotional, psychological & financial burdens of losing BOTH PARENTS at such a young age & during a very influential time in their lives.
Now some people might be thinking - shouldn’t they have planned ahead to possibly avoid a financial situation like this - and the answer is YES! These folks would be 100% correct in their thinking - but unfortunately that isn’t the reality of our situation we find ourselves in and are asking for your help.
To be fully transparent - we are asking for financial help with 2 specific items:
• Nathan’s funeral expenses ~ $7,807
• Any monies received in excess of the funeral expenses will be placed into a fund designated for the 3 children with full accounting.
Please know any amount given - will help us achieve our purposes listed above. We are required to pay 1/2 of the funeral cost on the day of his visitation & funeral - with the remaining balance due shortly thereafter. If you have any questions or concerns, we’d be happy to discuss if you’d like - just let us know.
We truly appreciate the support of our family, friends & the friends of our friends - possibly helping financially &/or sharing our story through their social media and other avenues to help us get our message out.
In closing, our family encourages you to kiss a loved one, hug a loved one or call a loved one - there is no guarantee of a later opportunity.
*this GoFundMe campaign is managed by Nathan’s oldest brother - Joey Bickley Mt. Washington, KY.
All funds will be dispersed with full record of accounting exactly as described above.
