THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME AND WHO PUT IN ENERGY AND EFFORT TO MAKE THIS EVENT HAPPEN.
The memorial, despite being sad and awful that it had to exist, was beautiful and absolutely perfect in its inclusion of all things Jacob. We want to thank everyone for contributions that allowed the planning to go off without a hitch.
The next phase of fundraising is to get more of the Solider's Heart CD ordered so we can get it into the hands of EVERY veteran we all encounter AND in the hands of every VA employee and administrator, so they might have a more holistic and comprehensive understanding of Moral Injury and of Jacob's message and life.
Please continue to promot until we hit our goal of $10,000. We would like to order another 1,000 CDs before the year is over to begin distributing to veterans across the country.
Any and all donations which exceed what is needed for the Memorial Celebration Services will be split between.
Also the family has asked in lieu of sending flowers or other donations, that donations be made directly to these organizations at these websites:
the Peace at Home Family Shelter in Fayetteville
The Omni Peace Center:
Veggies for Vets:
Everyone please take care of yourselves. Talk to your friends and loved ones about how this loss is affecting you and reach out if you need support.
Please share this with all our friends and loved ones who knew and were touched by Jacob's energy, passion, and strength.
