Steve Carlesi Memorial Fund
Friday, July 20, 2012, 10:30am, we hit a goal of $40,000!
Hopefully, we'll finish strong at $50,000 by Sunday evening July 22, 2012. Thank you all for your help!
This page is set up to raise funds and ease the burden on Steve's wife, son, and step-daughter.
I hope to be able to reply to each and everyone of you...but please be patient.
ALSO, I want to send a HUUUUUUGE thank you (again, not sufficient wording) to The Opie and Anthony Show on Sirius XM. Erik texted me what you guys have donated and I cannot stop bawling. I am beyond touched.
I want to thank you all for your more than gracious donations.
Steve did not have a life insurance policy...this fund raiser will help us more than any of you could quite possibly understand.
I am thankful for each and every one of you!
MJ and Xander
I have memories of Steve with the, " XM O&A Show", beginnings; a genuine person through other's incites and truly, will be missed..
And THATS how you raise $50,000. Great to see the fans come together for Steve's family.
Would you mind if I mentioned this to a devout group of bariatric/stapling community. Obesityhelp.com. It is an amazing group of people who have gone through similar procedures, problems,after effects and the like. It is filled with caring people. I ask only because Steve and I discussed this procedure many times at WNEW, even before he had it. I would like to be able to share not the tragedy, but the success of who Steve is. It is your decision and if you want, as I do not know much, please e-mail with anything you would like to say. Relatedly, even though we never met, I saw the picture of Steve on Facebook when we friended each other and was like, wow, this man is truly in love with this woman, big time. You do not see many men especially a mans man, like Steve, posting pictures of affection and love. It always made me smile. God Bless you and your family.
Raaaaaamone give me your sleeve...
Steve - it was a pleasure to meet you & work on a couple of small side projects. You will be missed by many. RIP, my friend.
So sorry for your loss. Steve provided me with many laughs over the years and will be greatly missed.
If I was in a better way I could do more then just pray for his family!
Entertained me through many third-shift nights of work years ago. Thanks for the LOLs.
Worked with Steve and Ben a lot back in the days of the AOTM. Steve was a standup guy and a great talent. RIP.
I got to meet Steve at both Traveling Virus Camden shows. Hell of a nice guy. Taken way to soon. RIP Steve. My condolences, MJ.
I never got the opportunity to meet Steve, but nevertheless I offer my deepest condolences and prayers to M.J., the children, and the rest of the Carlesi family in your time of greif. God bless.
Steve was such a genuinely nice guy. That came thru when he was on the show. He could take such abuse from the guys, but took it all with grace and a lot of laughter. It is strange to feel sadness for someone you never met, but we all felt like we knew Steve, and loved the fact that he made us all laugh! God bless and rest in peace friend...
I loved when Steve was on O&A. He always seemed to be the kindest and nicest guy. Shame that he is gone.
Steve was amazing. I love every Worst of O&A that involves him. And I miss him on the show. My thoughts go out to his Wife and Son.
Such a horrible loss for the family. Steve made some unforgettable contributions to the O&A show that will never go stale
Listening to Opie and Anthony (as far back as the WNEW days) in my car has kept me from installing a machine gun on the roof of my car to annihilate any cars in front of me in God-awful Long Island traffic. Steve C definitely had a big part in my enjoyment of the O & A show. Cheers.
This is really, really special. Everyone coming through for the Carlesi crew.
All of us in radio/tv share in a common bond, I hope Steve's son knows how great a guy his Dad was. Foundry provided all of us with tons of laughs and was truly innovative for its time. RIP Steve
Great job O & A pests, just hit over the 20,000.00 goal. You will me greatly missed Steve, I hope your son reads all the comments when he gets older & realizes what a great guy you were.
