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 have established this donation site to provide support for his family during this difficult time. Due to the unusual circumstances surrounding the timing of Jeff's death, there is currently very little income available to Carrie, nor is there any life insurance available to collect. We hope for a more favorable outcome for the long term ( yet to be seen) so this fund is meant to offer immediate assistance and has been making a huge difference for Carrie and her family.
In addition to providing immediate support for short term expenses, donations will go towards Harry's school tuition at Minnesota Life College in Richfield, MN. In addition to providing Harry trainng in life skills, the school provides support for students and their parents in acquiring outside services critical to transitioning students with special needs to semi independent living environments post graduation.
Please consider making a gift to the family in Jeff's memory. Your gift, combined with others, will and already has made a big difference.
For anyone who is more comfortable mailing a donation rather than making a gift online, please write a check to The Lee Family Benevolence Fund, and mail to:

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.
