Support for the Gilyana Family
Eiffel Gilyana, a beacon of kindness in our community, is missing. His infectious laughter and unwavering spirit touched everyone he met, from his esteemed work as an Iraqi Christian interpreter with the US Army Special Forces to his dedication to Task Force Hydro1 and the Jewish Community Alliance. Escaping unimaginable hardship in Iraq, Eiffel rebuilt a life in Jacksonville with his wife Lana and their three children, embracing every moment with an open heart.

When our own Ricky Van Rickley, a retired Green Beret, faced cancer, Eiffel stood by his side with unyielding support, a testament to his selflessness.

Though the United States Coast Guard search has concluded, we refuse to lose hope. Our volunteers tirelessly scour the waters with boats and drones, driven by the unwavering resolve to bring Eiffel home.

Join us in honoring Eiffel's legacy. Your generous donations directly support Lana and their children during this unimaginable time, covering daily needs and the ongoing search. Every dollar, every share, brings us closer to bringing him back.

Remember Eiffel. Share his story. Bring him home.
