Yusuf Ozgur Killed during Denny's Robbery Manassas

Yusuf Ozgur, a standup citizen, husband, and father was shot and killed by two armed robbers in a Denny's restaurant on December 26th, 2019 in Manassas VA. He was entering the Denny's to pick up food as a DoorDash employee for a customer when the robbers were leaving the Denny's, hit him on the head with a baton, and then fatally shot him on their way out. He was a great hard working man that leaves behind two young childeren and a wife. We are asking for donations to fund his funeral and other expenses. Any extra funds will be passed on to his wife and childeren. He was the main bread maker for his family so any help is greatly appreciated.


I have received countless messages from people asking me to post my affiliation with the family, understandably, as some people are hesitant to donate funds. I am a close family friend of Yusuf's and have known him my whole life. Our families migrated to this country together from Turkey in the early 1970's and have known each other since. I have setup Yusuf's wife as the beneficiary of this fund. This can be seen at the top of this campaign posting. All funds will go directly to her through a method of her own choosing.
