Unexpected Loss of Jessie Ryan

Jessie Ryan was an Army Veteran that unexpectedly passed away Wednesday December 16, 2020. He left behind his wife Carlee and two daughters; Amber and Courtney. 

Amber got a call from her mother around 4AMTuesday morning from her mother worried about Jessie. He had an infection in his heart that created a kidney infection and blood clots to his brain. A little longer than 24 hours later, he passed away.

After going through his belongings and mail, it appears he was looking into life insurance, however; he must have thought he had more time. 

With no life insurance in place Carlee has taken time off work to be there for Jessie while he was in the hospital and now grieving time. Carlee unfortunately does not get bereavement pay. 

This happened so unexpectedly Carlee would be grateful for any help.
