Support the DuRee family - Love lives on

Our hearts broke when Braydan DuRee passed away on July 20th in an accident while climbing the Grand Teton with his son. His loss leaves behind his wife Jessica and their four wonderful children Kaleb (16), Eliza (14), Jane (10 almost 11) and Isaac (6).

Braydan left a lasting impact on each of us fortunate enough to know him. A devoted husband and father, he cherished nothing more than spending time with his family and nurturing strong relationships. As a brilliant and committed geotechnical engineer, his talents and positivity influenced those he worked with. Beyond his professional life, Braydan served his community and church with love and compassion. And most of all, he was the truest friend, son, brother, husband, and father. We miss him dearly.

Braydan was the sole provider in the family and his loss will be deeply felt financially by his wife and children. Family, friends and others who know the DuRees are raising money to help with costs associated with the loss and to help the family through this difficult time. All money will go directly to Jessica and the children.
