Support Raju's Last Journey Home

Donation protected
Dear Friends and Family,

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved friend, Raju Jha, in a drowning accident in Glacier National Park on July 06, 2024. Raju moved to the USA in 2019 from Janakpur, Nepal to study Masters in Structural Engineering at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. Post Masters, he had been working for Jacobs Engineering, Portland, OR as a Structural Engineer.

Raju was a shining light in our lives, bringing joy and laughter to all who knew him. He loved cooking and serving food to anyone who came across his way, and bringing people together, be it a close friend or someone he just met. He was enthusiastic and passionate about climbing and hiking. In this time of grief, we are reaching out to our community for support in sending him to Nepal for his final rites.

We are hosting a fundraiser to help cover the expenses in transporting him to his family in Nepal where they can bid goodbye to their beloved son. Your generous contributions will not only ease the financial burden on their loved ones but also show your love and support during this difficult time.

Let us remember Raju for his kindness, laughter and the love he shared with us. In his memory, let's come together to support his family and ensure that he is honored in a way that befits his beautiful spirit.

Thank you for your kindness and support.

I’m a friend of Raju and plan to use the funds raised to take care of expenses to send Raju to Nepal. Any additional amount raised will be given to his family in Nepal.

We are really grateful for all your contributions. Many of you have wanted to contribute more to Raju's family, so we have decided to increase the amount one last time so that all the additional money could be used to help his family financially. Thanks again for all the love and support.
