Stand with the Sootsman’s

While most families spent Sunday celebrating the Super Bowl, others were grieving the sudden and unexpected death of a husband, father, son, friend, JJ Sootsman. JJ is survived by his wife Jessica and 2 children, Daimien and Meeka.

As many know, JJ and Jessica purchased their dream property in 2017. Both JJ and Jessica have always loved to take on projects to make something their own. Being winter time right now, propane is becoming extremely expensive and she is working on getting her wood stove back in working condition after their fire.

Anyone who knows JJ and Jessica, know they have always been the first people to step up to help when someone needed it. Neither of them asked questions, they were just there immediately.

That being said, Jessica has an extremely long road ahead of her, it's now our turn to help her. Without JJ's income and projects already partially finished, Jess is now faced with this journey alone.

Many have asked how they can help. I am hoping to raise enough money to help ease the financial strain for their family, along with getting the stove/chimney repaired and propane bills paid for the upcoming months.

If donating online is not for you, but you still would like to help, please feel free to reach out. We will make sure all donations go directly to her and the kids. Jessica has been so appreciative of everyone reaching out in this time of need.
