The Story

Please see the updates below!

Yesterday, unexpectedly, Jessica Kavits McManamon was taken from this earth. She leaves behind the two great loves of her life- her devoted wife, Nicole, and their one month old baby, Wyatt. 

Those of you lucky enough to know Jess know that she was warm, funny, and inviting. She was an avid reader. She loved Broadway, game nights, and trivia. She was getting her PsyD, preparing to devote her life to helping others navigate the difficulties life can bring. We wish she were here to help us navigate this tragedy. 

We are hoping to raise enough money to cover Jess' rent contribution for the next year, enabling Nicole and Wyatt to remain in the home they shared. Any additional funds raised will go to Wyatt's needs.

Fundraiser Updates

In just one week, we have surpassed our initial goal by more than we ever thought possible. We all remain overwhelmed, touched, and grateful for your continued contributions. In light of the heartwarming generosity you've all shown, we'd like to share an update with you about this incredible fundraiser. Initially, we sought to provide Nicole and Wyatt with enough money to cover what would have been Jess' contribution to their monthly living expenses for the period of one year. From the start, we knew that anything above the initial amount of $8,000 that we were fortunate enough to receive would go toward Wyatt's expenses. However, we wanted to let you all know that because of the astounding generosity from strangers and loved ones alike, we will be setting up an educational trust for Wyatt, and everything above the initial $8,000 will be set aside for Wyatt's future.

Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your selfless contributions. We appreciate every single one of your 1300+ shares and nearly 300 individual donations.

I am overwhelmed at the generosity being shown Nicole and Wyatt. On behalf of them, I thank you all for your shares and donations. I cannot believe we reached our initial goal in just a few hours. Should anyone feel compelled to donate after we've hit this milestone, I'd like to reiterate that additional funds will go to Wyatt's needs, whether that be supplies for a growing child, his education, or general living expenses in the coming years. Single motherhood is difficult in any situation, and I know that Nicole appreciates not only your generosity, but your support and love. It is clear that Jess' light reached far and wide, and I am glad that light lives on in Wyatt. Thank you again and again.
