Support for the Mcdonald/Burdette Family

Jesse Burdette and Abby McDonald’s sweet son Silas Jaxon passed away unexpectedly March 7. Silas had the ability to light up any room he was in. Though he faced many medical challenges in his three short years of life, “Super Silas” always had a smile on his face, bringing joy to every single person he met. He loved to dance, sing along to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Baby Shark, play with anything musical, and snuggle up with his parents on the couch.


There are no words adequate to describe the earth-shattering loss of your child; Silas was the light of his parents’ life, and they are truly heartbroken that they live on without him. No one is prepared for the death of their child and the incredible expenses that ensue, and we want to ease their financial burdens as much as possible. Funds will go directly to Jesse and Abby and are needed ASAP to cover funeral costs, medical bills, rent, food, and whatever else might come up. They send their sincere thanks for all the love, condolences and donations they have already received.
