The Jonathan Spear Recovery Fund

Last night (June 6th) Jonathan was the victim of a drive by shooting in Yakima Washington. He was shot twice while working in his front-yard garden. One of the bullets severed his spine. Jonathan and his (pregnant) wife, Valerie, were rushed to Seattle for an emergency surgery. As of this morning (June 7th) he is out of the operating room. They have fused multiple vertebrae, and it is doubtful he will ever walk again. Fortunately, Jonathan is still with us and is expected to retain use of his upper body.

It is early, but we know that Jonathan and Val are going to have numerous medical bills and expenses while he recovers and adjusts to a life with altered mobility. We are setting up this fund to help defray those costs.

More than money, we ask for your prayers for a miracle. Please pray that Jonathan would have a swift recovery and regain the capacity to live a full and productive life. Thanks in advance for your prayers and support. We will do our best to keep you all posted.

With Love, Jonathan's family.
