In loving memory of Tristan Alexander

Our beloved Tristan Alexander was
tragically  killed recently in a snowboarding accident on January 5th, 2021.Tristan died snowboarding on an intermediate groomed run at Mt. Washington. He was a wonderful son, brother, grandson, cousin and friend who touched the lives of those around him. Tristan was an elite athlete and exemplary student.

Tristan’s family is reeling at this time, having lived through the tragic death of his sister who had an inoperable brain tumor when she was three. The layers of loss and grief are enormous. His mom has just returned to work six months ago, after a medical leave from her work as an occupational therapist where she works with young children with special needs. The family has endured numerous health crises over the past 3 years and they have always approached these challenges with a positive attitude and grace that has been an inspiration to all who know them. It is inconceivable that this wonderful young man who has been such a source of strength and resilience has been taken from them.  

We would like to ease the burden and stress for them by putting together a fund to help them with unexpected expenses including funeral costs and to give them more time and space to grieve their profound loss. 

We hope that you can contribute and support Tristan’s family through this tragic time. We are so incredibly thankful for any donations.
