On July 17, 1999 Jon and his family were killed in a tragic automobile accident. Upon this loss, his family wanted the person that Jon was to be remembered by all. We thought of ways that he would want his memory and the memory of his family to live on. Jon was a very loving person. He was funny, bright, and very generous. We know, if they had been given the opportunity, Jon and Misty would have brought their baby girl up the same way. Therefore we felt that the best way to honor the three of them was to be loving and generous to children who are dealing with major medical problems.
In 2006 it was decided that not only would we help children with major medical problems, but also bring awareness to a very rare disease, Juvenile Dermatomyositis. This disease began to effect someone very close to Jon and we knew that helping this little girl and others like her would be a priority to Jon if her were still with us. Therefore, a portion of the money we make from fundraisers will be donated to fund research on this disease so that this it may be better understood and a cure can be found in the near future. There is information on this disease at The Cure JM foundation.
