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