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 and family established this donation site to provide support for his family which has proved to be invaluable during this difficult time, as there was no income available from either of Jeff's businesses, being in their development stages, nor was there any life insurance.
Funds were raised last summer that made a huge difference for Carrie and Harry in getting back on their feet, but donations are still needed to help finish paying off Harry's school tuition at Minnesota Life College in Richfield, MN. The school has provided critical support training in life skills for Harry and the other 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 preparing to go back into the workforce full time, but continues to have more than a full plate with a very complicated estate; far from being settled, and working on obtaining services for Harry after he graduates.
Please consider making a gift to the family in Jeff's memory to help pay Harry's tuition. Your gift, combined with others, has and 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 and put "for Harry Lee's tuition" in the memo line.You will receive a letter of thanks acknowledging your donation, and Carrie will be notified as well.

Thank you so much!
**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.
