TJ Cunningham Memorial Fund

$81,276 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 812 people in 2 months
Created February 18, 2019
Aurora, Colorado has lost one of its sons. TJ Cunningham, a prominent Overland High School football star, CU Buffalo and eventual NFL football player for the Seattle Seahawks, was senselessly shot by a neighbor and taken from this world while doing nothing more than protecting his family. TJ's legacy is beyond words and he has left behind a wife and five beautiful children who depended on him as a husband, father and primary provider.

TJ always stood up for what was right and looked out for people who could not speak up for themselves. It's not a coincidence that his career path led to helping children through education as the Assistant Principal at Hinkley High School. His warm presence and generous spirit has profoundly impacted the lives of countless relatives, friends, colleagues & kids.

This account has been created solely to provide aid to TJ's wife, Kristi, and his daughters in their time of grief and need.

The Memorial Service will be held at 1:00pm MT on Monday, February 25th at the Heritage Christian Center in Aurora (14401 E Exposition Ave, Aurora, CO 80012).

Hi All - Please see below for a message from Kristi Cunningham:

As TJ’s wife, I am sorry it has taken me a few weeks to say thank you. I hope this message reaches everyone who donated to the go fund me page that was setup for us. TJ’s daughters and I are so grateful for your generosity. Thank you for all of the messages that were sent about TJ. It puts a smile on our faces to see how many people loved him. I hope that we can all slowly move forward with the grace of God, and try to make this world a better place. We will carry on TJ’s legacy of giving back to society. Thank you all so much!

Love, The Cunningham Girls (Kristi, Tiana, Gabriella, Trinity, Kamari and Kadence)

Thank you all so much for the incredible outpouring of support and generous donations to support TJ's wife and daughters so far. TJ's profound impact on friends, family & community is evident in the beautiful tributes made during his Memorial Service last week and in the hundreds of warm & loving comments made by all on this page. We estimate that over 1,500 people attended the service to celebrate his life - a true testament to his amazing legacy.

As you all know, the difficulty in coping with TJ's loss is just beginning for his family and we encourage anyone who has not yet had a chance to donate to contribute, even if it's just a small amount. We'd love to reach our $100,000 goal! Kristi is extremely grateful for everyone's support.

For those of you who were not able to attend the memorial last week, here are a few clips from the service:


Thank you all again for your support.
