On August 6th 2013 Jessica received the terrible news that her husband SSGT. Ryan Austin was involved in a terrible accident that took his life. She is currently 33 weeks pregnant with their first baby and stationed overseas in Germany. Currently away from most of her family and friends Jessica is taking this day by day...hour by hour.This fundraiser will help cover some of the most difficult months which lie ahead for Jessica and Baby A. Trying to relieve stress to allow her to appropriately mourn the loss of an amazing man, her husband. To those of you who did not have the true pleasure of meeting Ryan Austin before his passing know he was an amazing man. So thoughtful, caring and compassionate for life. He would help a total stranger in need if he had to. His love for his wife and unborn baby showed through so clearly and effortlessly in his eyes. The world has lost a great Airman, many people have lost a great friend, a wife has lost the love of her live and a baby will never know its father. We will never understand why God takes the best, but now an angel in heaven Ryan is laid to rest.
Wether your local or not, have been blessed to be apart of the Austin's lives or not this woman and her baby are the most deserving of all our love and support. This is about showing Jessica she is not alone. This is about showing another person whose world has been turned upside down that there is still good in the world. This is about baby A and ensuring this baby will have the best possible life under the circumstances. No amount of money could ever take away the pain or wipe away the tears but it will take a great deal of stress off of the shoulders of this amazing wife as she prepares to start over.
We sincerely appreciate any and all help and prayers for Jessica and Baby A.
"Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow."
Thank You for your support.
