Help The Powell/Place Family
"If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them."
Trey Powell is a professional fitness trainer at Jesse James Fit in Flower Mound, Texas. For several years now, Trey has devoted his life to helping his clients improve their quality of life, recover from injuries or accidents, gain confidence, and promote longevity. Trey is well-loved by his clients, friends, and coworkers.
On March 19th, Trey Powell lost his step-father, Jeffrey Place, and youngest brother, Steven Powell, and their family dog, Cam, in a cold-blooded murder.

We are coming together as a community to help Trey and his family piece things back together and take care of themselves. We are raising money to cover funeral arrangements as well as any other expenses that may come up during this devastating time.
Trey and his father, Tony Powell, are currently in Philadelphia supporting Trey's mother, Wendy, and the rest of their family.
Anyone that knows Trey knows that he is the most kindhearted person you will ever meet. He works his hardest to provide support and love for his family and his friends - in the 10+ years that he has been involved with the Jesse James Fit family he has changed the lives of everyone he has met. Now it is our turn to take care of Trey and his family. All proceeds will go directly to the family.
Thank you in advance for your kindness. It is very much appreciated. Please keep Trey and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

As of today, we have raised $14,462. I'm proud of the progress we have made and excited to see what awaits us in the next couple of days. I have been doing a lot of interviews with news stations and it really makes me happy to see how much attention this story is getting.
I have updated the fundraising page with links to all recent articles regarding this fundraiser as well as the obituaries for Jeff and Stevie.
I can't say it enough but I'll sure try - thank you for all of your help. Thank you for the phone calls, the emails, the donations, the exposure... All of it.

We are slowing healing will take time and I miss them so much but I know they are watching over us and I have some peace in my heart knowing they are together. The guys who did this said he don't know why that they were both great guys just that he heard a voice that said he needed to help my family but we are strong and they will not knock us down My steve had such an amazing heart he would help anyone especially the old couple across the street. He collected everything from nascar to bobble heads and lighters. His favorite thing was his john deere took better care of it then most people take care of their cars. And what can I say about my husband he was so good, zhe could fix or build anything from club house for the grand kids to furniture and he loved his koi pond and I will make sure I take care of them. just want to thank everyone again for the help.

I can't imagine the loss you've experienced but with God I know that you'll overcome in time. Good blessings be upon you guys now and in the days to come. Tony and JoAnn I love you guys.
