Jim Tramel Memorial Fund

$181,964 of $150,000 goal

Raised by 1,129 people in 41 months
Please help us raise money to be used (and/or donated to one or more non-profits) by the wife of our beloved colleague Jim Tramel, who died on Easter Sunday in a tragic pool accident while trying to save one of his 3 beautiful children.   We are, in a word, heartbroken.

Please donate generously to this fund which will be presented to Jim's wife Kim as a stipend, for use by Kim as she chooses for the welfare and education of her children, and/or as one or more donation(s) to some deserving non-profit(s) of her choice*. 

We are SO thankful for any help you can provide.

*It's come to our attention that some well-intentioned citizens have (incorrectly) assumed this GoFundMe campaign was established because Jim wasn’t covered by a company life insurance policy. This is incorrect. Proceeds raised by this campaign are in fact in addition to the life insurance benefits the family will receive.

Dear friends and supporters of Jim and Kim Tramel,

I am writing this group email today because your flood of generosity has long since outstripped our ability to keep up with individual thank you notes. (We wrote individual digital thank you notes to the first 200+ donors, we're now over 1,090 supporters and counting...)

So to each and every one of you, on behalf of Jim's wife Kim and all of his former colleagues who set up this fund, we want to convey enormous gratitude and thanks for all of your support. Your prayers, messages and donations are an absolute inspiration.

As many of you know, Kim and Jim's daughter is fighting and surviving - but still has a long road ahead of her. And while Kim has asked that we not share additional medical details in this forum, she does want us to convey her enormous thanks for the outpouring of prayers, community support and donations to this fund. She also wants everyone to know that this money will indeed be used as described in the campaign, as Kim judges best for the welfare and/or education of her children and/or to make one or more donation(s) to some deserving non-profit(s) of Kim's choice.

All of this said, to one and all, THANKS again for your kindness and generosity - and let's all keep praying for Joss as she fights to continue down the road for the best possible recovery.

Very sincerely,
Mitchell and team
(Jim Tramel's former colleagues)
