James Stremmel Memorial Fund

On Saturday, January 16th, the world lost a beautiful soul. James Glenn Stremmel passed away while doing what he loved most, skydiving. Glenn was many things to many people: a son, a brother, a soul-mate, a cousin, a nephew, and a one of a kind friend. He threw caution and convention to the wind and fearlessly pursued what set his sweet, creative, ridiculous soul on fire. His loving family at Triangle Skydiving Center in Louisburg, North Carolina, will be having a memorial for Glenn on February 5th. With the help of the Stremmel Family, the Smircic Family and the Triangle Skydiving Family, we have created Blue Skies: The James Glenn Stremmel Memorial Fund. Our goal with this foundation is to provide financial assistance to Glenn's friends and family outside of the Louisburg area who would like to attend the annual memorial at Triangle Skydiving Center. Glenn's passion was skydiving and we know he would love for as many people to experience it as possible. Any donation to this page is greatly appreciated, as is a simple share on social media. I will also be creating an offical account at TDECU (our local credit union) for those who would feel more comfortable donating straight to a financial institution. I will post the account number here as soon as it is available. The $5000.00 goal is to cover travel and skydiving costs. Any excess funds will go towards the annual memorial skydive in Glenn's honor. Thank you all in advance for your love and support.
