One of the sweetest men that I’ve ever met, the love of my brother’s life, the son of two amazing parents, the brother of 4 incredible siblings, the uncle of 10 nieces and newphews, the brother in law that my sister and I have always wanted, the son-in-law that my parents loved dearly - this was Landen and he has tragically passed away.  There are no true words to describe what type of person that he was. He unfortunately passed away because he wanted to stop and help someone else. Landen had the most beautiful soul. If you are able to donate to help with his celebration of life and help my brother navigate this difficult time, anything would be greatly appreciated. He will be missed more than words can express. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Hi everyone, it's me Shua - Landen's partner.
First off, words cannot express the gratitude I have for each of you. Your kindness, love, and generosity has helped me survive mentally, emotionally, and financially during what seems like a never-ending period of grief. I knew EXACTLY how special Landen was, but never in my wildest dreams did I think Landen's reach was so broad... He was truly an incredible human being. To stop on the highway to help a stranger - to drive that stranger for gas - to take not just a few minutes but an hour out of his day for someone else - this was not something Landen had to do. He likely didn't even WANT to do it. But Landen felt an innate duty to make other people's live better, just because. In fact, if Landen and Jason hadn't died that day, I doubt Landen would have even told me about stopping and helping. He didn't want accolades. He just wanted the world to be kinder, more fabulous, and more beautiful.

Celebrations of life have been planned in both Colorado and NYC in the upcoming weeks. If you're able to join us to celebrate my beautiful hero, please RSVP to the links below. I hope to see you there.

COLORADO CELEBRATION

If you'd like to keep up with my journey please join my email list. I'll be sending weekly emails with fun stories and photos of or inspired by our beautiful Landen. I'm determined to inspire every person I meet from here until the end of my days to #LiveLikeLanden and keep his legacy ALIVE. I also intend to create a Foundation in Landen's name dedicated to the restoration and preservation of historic buildings, and the email list will keep you in the know on all of it.

Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart. Take great care of yourselves, take time to see the beauty all around you, and whatever you're dreaming of doing - DO IT NOW. That's how you start to #LiveLikeLanden, and I intend to always make him proud.
See you all very soon.

So many amazing things have happened in the past few days. A HUGE thank you again for all of the family, friends and other good Samaritan’s (following in Landen’s footsteps) who have donated to Landen’s memory. All families are overwhelmed with love and support and it is such a blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you. If you are able, please also donate to Jason Jackson - his 4 children have lost a father and his family deserves all the the love and appreciation they should get. Such a tragedy for all parties. We did not know the the Jacksons, but want to be as supportive as possible. So sorry for your loss.
