Supporting Omar and Rehman

Some of you may have heard about the passing of Omar and Rehman's father, Anis Tungekar.  Mr. Tungekar was the victim of a road rage attack in the Loop area of Chicago, IL. After walking away from a traffic dispute, he was brutally beaten by another driver, taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, put on life support, and succumbed to his injuries on September 4th, 2018. He is survived by his wife, Tharmina, and two sons, Omar and Rehman. Omar and Rehman's mother, Flordeliza passed away in 2001. 

Mr. Tungekar's sons were far from Chicago when police informed them their father had been assaulted. When they finally arrived at his bedside, they discovered their father had been the victim of a heinous crime and had little time with him before his unimaginable death. Coverage in the Chicago Tribune  , WGN News , and Chicago Block Club  describes the painful ordeal the family now faces in their search for justice.

We all know how burdensome the cost of medical bills and funerals can be and we know that the family is in need of our help, both emotionally and financially. Please join us in supporting the Tungekar family as they grieve this devastating loss.
