The James Smith Legacy Family Fund

On July 5th James Smith passed away in a catastrophic skydiving accident. James left behind his wife, Marlena, his 3 year old daughter, Cedar, and his 8 month old son, Bodhi.

James was a professional skydiver and a self employed carpenter that was well respected by his peers. Although James was able to provide a decent family income, he was not covered by any extra insurances and did not have a "rainy day" fund.

Marlena (who has been a stay at home Mom) and their children are going to need all of the financial and emotional support they can get.

To anyone who would like to contribute to Marlena and the family directly, you can e-transfer to [email redacted].

Any contributions to Marlena, and the family are VERY much appreciated!
