Support for the Nishi family

In times of tragedy we come together as a community to lift up the ones we love, the ones who are hurting and who need our support now, more than ever! Please support Kourtney and her three daughters as they embark on the unthinkable journey of grieving the loss of their husband and father, Ryan.

Ryan was a beloved husband, son, brother, family member, friend, teammate and colleague. He was also a loving, caring and doting dad to three beautiful girls. He was the dad that fathers around him aspired to be like. He immersed himself in the joy of raising his children. Without hesitation he was the dad who played with his kids and his friends kids. The dad who made everyone in his presence feel happy and loved.
The lasting impact on those he met went far beyond what Ryan, his wife and children even know. Regardless if it was one interaction or many, he touched the hearts of every single person he met through his kind and caring ways—if you knew him, you loved him!

On December 31st Ryan suddenly passed away.

There has been a huge outpouring of support and a desire to help.  Ryan was the sole financial provider for his family which included medical benefits for his daughter with type 1 diabetes.
All the proceeds of this GoFundMe fundraiser will be immediately forwarded to Ryan’s wife Kourtney. This fundraiser is intended to allow the family space and time to process and heal without worrying about finances. Donations will cover basic day to day living expenses, medical supplies, and provide Kourtney the ability to stay home with her children for the immediate future.

Please help in any way you can. Even the smallest donation is appreciated.

Ryan will be greatly missed. His lasting legacy will be one of positivity, love, and fond memories.

Thank you for any and all support.
