The Lee Family Benevolence Fund

$12,490raised of $28,000 goal

Beneficiary: Carrie and Harry Lee Organizer: Karin Gornick

On May 10, 2014, Jeffrey Fraser Lee passed away after complications from Pulmonary Fibrosis and Vasculitis. Jeff was in Northern California on business when he suffered an acute attack of the disease. After 2 weeks of a valiant fight at Stanford University's ICU, Jeff passed away peacefully surrounded by family and tunes of the Kingston Trio.
In Jeff's memory, friends established this donation site to provide support for his family which has proved to be invaluable during this difficult time, as there is little income available from either of Jeff's businesses.
Funds have been raised to help Carrie get back on her feet ,but donations are still needed to help with Harry's school tuition at Minnesota Life College in Richfield, MN.  The school provides critical support training in life skills for it's students, as well as advising and assisting their families in acquiring outside services necessary to transition students with special needs to semi independent living environments post graduation. Carrie is just now ( March 2015) getting to the point where she will be able to have time for full time work, with all she has had to deal with,so making tuition payments has and will continue to be a big stretch for her.

Please consider making a gift to the family in Jeff's memory to help pay Harry's tuition. Your gift, combined with others, will make a huge difference!

For anyone who is more comfortable mailing a donation rather than making a gift online, please write a check to Minnesota Life College for any amount. You will receive a letter of thanks acknowledging your donation. Please put "for Harry Lee's tuition" in the memo line, and mail to: 

Minnesota Life College
7501 Logan Ave S
Richfield, MN 55423

**Two memorial services were held. The first was on Saturday, June 28 in Minnetonka, MN.The second was on Saturday, August 2 in Tiburon, CA. A picnic followed and all of Jeff's family and a few close friends helped to celebrate Jeff's life. We only regret that we were unable to reach more of our friends.

Thank you for any support you can offer. If you have any questions, please call Karin, Carrie's niece at: 415-488-3100.
