On behalf of the Chico State Student Veteran Organization and the Veteran Education Support Team, we are humbly raising money for Wes Shockley's family.

Wes is survived by his wife Carolyn and two young children Jacob and Lucy. 100% of all donations will go directly to the family. The kids will need so much support, and we hope that the funds can be used for their benefit, their higher education, and their basic every day needs. 

Your donation will mean the world to us and the Shockley family. We mean to care for these kids the rest of their lives. 

We were so honored that Wes served as the Chico State Student Veteran Organization President during 2009 - 2010. Wes graduated Chico State with an MS in Social Work and then became the director for the Chico Vet Center where he successfully helped many veterans as a counselor. His personal sacrifice to give his heart and soul to veterans during the Iraq war and since then definitely took a very large toll on his heart and soul. We have lost a brother who is so beloved yesterday, today, and forever.

Thank you for your love and support of the Shockley family!

Friends, it's been nearly a year since we had to say goodbye to Wes. Since then, Carolyn and the kids have had to go one with their lives and their strength and resilience is astounding. I wonder if you would join me in a yearly fundraiser for the family and help them build their house and have some extra funds to help them out?

Carolyn, with all of my love we send you positivity and strength through the next month!

Wow! Thank you everyone! A very special person got the donation total to $20,000! Giving Tuesday was a huge success.

On a more serious note, the holiday season is a tough time for many of us. We are missing those that we loved who are with God now. The one reason I started the fundraiser was to do something positive with my grief over the loss of Wes. The one way we can pay it forward is to take care of his family. All of you who've donated have done the same and I personally thank you.

Please - ask your friends if they would donate $5 or $10 to help us get the family a few more dollars to make it through the next few months without having to worry about money. Do you share the goal of taking care of Lucy and Jacob? If so, please take some time to share this fundraiser and help in a small way to make their life better for the short term. Let's show them in a big way how much their dad loves them.

With all our love to Carolyn today! Let's send her our strength!
Thanks,
Angela

It's #GivingTuesday today! The Tuesday after Cyber Monday and Black Friday has been designated as Giving Tuesday to get away from the stress of the kickoff to the holiday season. (I had no idea!) Would you help us get to $20,000 today for the family? We are almost there!
Thanks,
Angela

My name is also Wes Shockley. No relation. I found out about Wes by searching my own name on the web. Emailed him once during the Iraq War. Wanted him to know I appreciated his service and that his name carried some military tradition. My Father is Wesley T Shockley 32 years Navy. Served in WW2. I was 4yrs Army myself 85-89. I searched may name again today and was saddened to learn that he passed. My deepest condolences.
