This morning I heard the tragic news that my former 24 Hour Fitness co-worker Bobby had been shot in the tragic Las Vegas Mass Shooting. While he is thankfully okay, his beloved wife Jenny did not survive. I can't even imagine what their family is going through and want to try to help in any way possible. I am starting this fund to help assist with funeral expenses for his wife Jenny and also any medical assistance he may need as I am uncertain as the extent of his injuries. Anything helps and is greatly appreciated. Please share and lets support Bobby during this difficult time.

I will not be increasing the goal any further, BUT it is my sincere hope are able to raise AT LEAST a few more thousand dollars for them. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO KEEP DONATING MORE! I estimate we need to hit just shy of 22k to get them the 20k after GoFundMe fees are taken out.  If you can't donate money, but have an idea to donate any goods or services for them please contact me at jessicashopeproject@gmail.com.

My name is Jessica Maddin and I founded Jessica's Hope Project , a non-profit that sent fitness care packages to deployed military. I met Bobby Parks through 24 Hour Fitness and he was a regular at our care package events to support our troops. All donations are tax deductible through my non-profit Jessica's Hope Project. I will be getting in contact with Bobby and his family to disburse the funds accordingly directly to him. I am located in Pasadena, California. Bobby is in the blue shirt in the front next to me holding a care package. 


My heart goes out to all the victims and families affected by this horrific tragedy.

I want to thank you all again a final time for contributing to my GoFundMe campaign for the Parks family. I already have been able to get almost all the funds to Bobby. I was able to attend Jenny's celebration of life at Jethawk Stadium in Lancaster this past Friday. It was a beautiful tribute to an amazing woman that I wish I could have known. It is a great loss to the community and so many people showed up wearing red, Jenny's favorite color. I was able to speak with Bobby and gave him a big hug. He was so very touched and thankful of all the support.

We were able to send Bobby the next batch of donation funds this morning. Thank you Paypal Giving for being so great and helping us get the funds to the family so quickly.

Above is the Facebook event for anyone who is interested in attending Jenny's celebration of life this Friday 10/13. Dress attire is casual and all those in attendance are highly encouraged to wear red as a tribute to Jenny’s favorite color. A book drive will be held during the event to honor Jenny’s love and commitment to education. New or used books in great condition may be dropped at the entrance to the event and will be donated to local schools in Jenny’s name.

Those wishing to send flower arrangements should have them delivered to Halley-Olsen-Murphy at 44831 N. Cedar Avenue, Lancaster, CA 93534. Deliveries must reference the Parks family.

Thank you again to everyone for all your support for the Parks family.

I had the honor of meeting Penny today, who is a very close friend of the Parks. She came all the way to Pasadena to pick up the first disbursement of donations for Bobby and his family. I presented her with two checks, one for the first batch of GoFundMe donations and $100 from my grandparents and I. We hope these funds help ease the financial burden for the family so they can begin to heal. Thank you to all that have shared and donated. I included a printed list with all the comments everyone has left for their family and hope it comforts them during this time.

Even though I am not increasing the goal any longer, I am going to continue to rally support for this deserving family. ANYTHING helps and is appreciated. If you can't donate money, but have an idea to donate any goods or services for them please contact me at jessicashopeproject@gmail.com.
