Let’s continue to do some good . . . Just like Jon!
On April 24, 2019, our beloved son, Jonathan Robert Denzer, lost his battle with an autoimmune disease with complications from epilepsy. He was 27 years old. Jon was loving, kind, gentle, funny and a giant! At 6’6’’, he towered over all, especially his adoring mother.
His love and kindness was evident as soon as he entered a room. He was never hesitant to wrap his arms around you or drape his arms over the shoulders of his friends. He was the best bear hugger ever. We couldn’t help Jon beat the disease that took him from his family and friends way too early.
With this foundation we hope to do some good….just like Jon. It is our mission to help young adults achieve their goals and live a meaningful, productive and independent life as Jon did and would have all the days of his life.
