The Kornick Boys

Ben and Jacob Kornick are the sons of  Greg Kornick, who passed away last week due to a sudden heart attack while driving home from work. Living paycheck to paycheck was already difficult, but after the passing of their father, and their mother who died nearly 6 years ago, they are now orphans. Greg Kornick sacrificed everything for his two sons, and all the money went towards making their lives better each and every day although they didn't have much. Ben a senior at Blessed Trinity, is looking forward to going to college at Georgia Southern, while Jacob, already a sophomore at Georgia Southern is looking to finish his degree majoring in Business. The boys are left with only his memory and last paycheck, along with the help of some family and friends to live off of. This gofundme was created by a group of Ben's friends, and as boys who all come from two parent households, it hurts to see that Ben won't have a true home to leave, when he goes off to college. We ask that you consider making a donation as we understand the financial responsibilities these two young men now have in beginning to support themselves. If you choose to donate to this fund, the money will go to Tom Ellis (He and his wife Ruthie are looking after Ben while he finishes high school), who is running a custodial account for the two boys, who need all the help they can get in this extremely difficult time. The support would mean the world for these two and would change their lives forever.
