Sean East funeral fund

$17,100 of $18,000 goal

Raised by 238 people in 2 months
Created February 9, 2019
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved friend and Commanding Officer, Sean East.

Sean has taught all of us what it means to live for others. He committed his life to his community and those around him. He lived and breathed charity and kindness.

Sean has been a light in the lives of so many. Sean's selflessness has been felt by many. He did this without the normal family network many of us are able to appreciate. That is exceptionally difficult, both emotionally and financially, in this time. Any help is very much needed to support him with his services.

Thank you, and we appreciate you in this difficult time.

Sean leaves behind his teenage son, Jacen. He will be sorely missed by so many


Our  executive officer,  Tye O'dell, will be handling the funds for the funeral and for Jacen,  who will get the remainder put into a trust fund,  that he will be able to access after completing high school. We will look at different options on how he will be able to access the trust fund

Additionally, We paid $755.13 to Sunset Memorial Park for his memorial stone. Jacen was given a $300 voucher to use but asked for some assitance in upgrading because he wanted Sean to have his own stone, instead of being a name on a wall of names

We transferred $10,197.96 to Jacen's grandmother (who has POA over him)and went with her to her bank, where she made a CD set to mature in 17 months. It will be then be rolled over into a new one.
$2000 was set aside for Tye until we figure out what the taxes are going to be (IRS takes taxes out of gofundme funds) . After next years taxes, we will give all or the remainder to Jacen for spending money. We also put $500 in his savings account now for him to spend on whatever he'd like.

Sean's cremation is paid in full. We will be meeting with a financial advisor later this week to discuss an account for the remainder of the funds going to Jacen

Funds have finally transferred and we will post a copy of the receipt to the funeral home later, for transparency
