Jubilee was a beautiful soul who was loved by all. She was generous and giving, a talented hair stylist with a love for travel and food, and the spirit of a warrior with a fearless sense of adventure. She will be missed beyond what words can express.

Jim, Jubilee and Olive were a closely knit family who cared immensely for each other, and always held on tightly even during difficult times. Jubilee had to battle a rare type of bone cancer as a teenager (Ewing's Sarcoma) and then again was afflicted with cancer in her early 30s, after which her daughter Olive was born. Jubilee celebrated her 40th birthday last year.

Cancer came back silently and by the time it was diagnosed in mid October of 2018, a large tumor had grown in her heart. She had very few visible symptoms, so the diagnosis was a shock to everyone. She felt good and strong, but it was determined that surgery was urgently needed to remove the tumor. The surgery was done on October 29th, and she passed away on October 31st from complications related to the surgery.

Her sweet 6-year-old daughter Olive and her husband Jim could use financial help to carry them through. It would help them to pay their bills and enable Olive to continue to go to her current school here in the San Francisco Bay Area, where cost of living is sky high.

Jim, Olive, and their whole village of friends and family would be deeply grateful for the support in alleviating financial stress for her family.

A note from Jim:

Dear Friends,

Olive and I would like to thank everyone for their most generous support shown during our time of need. It was truly amazing to see how Jubilee touched so many people, in so many ways. Also, a special thank you to Ellen Camp for thinking up the whole thing.

I’d like to share with you, how your gift has been so tremendously helpful. To start, it enabled Olive and I some down time together and to provide for lots of activities for Olive. We were able to keep her in school with additional help from the whole school staff. It truly provided peace of mind that we could just catch our breaths for a bit, and keep the lights on.

More importantly, it has been the life blood for our remodel to be finished. This will enable us to sell our home and start our next journey. We are so fortunate to have this opportunity and I think it will be great for Olive, as we plan to move to Santa Cruz. She has a real passion for Marine Biology, Boogie Boarding, and likes the nearby forests.

I wish there was a better way to say it again, but Thank You all so much!!!

Jim, Olive and Isabella…………

Hi everyone, a few of us went to hang out with Jim today and help out with some paperwork and reminisce about some of the many good times we've shared with Jubilee and her family. Jim hadn't been monitoring this campaign and of course is being pulled in many directions, but was pleasantly shocked (if that's a thing...) and grateful knowing that this money is available for he and Olive. It would be awesome to keep the love coming and momentum going via sharing the story and reposting. Also stay tuned for other events people are organizing in memory of Jubilee, an incredibly special person who touched so many people's hearts and lives.
