Welcome to the Jesse Jones Memorial Fund
This fund was established in 2011 after Jesse's tragic death in Thailand at the age of 30.
The Jesse Jones Memorial Fund (at the discretion of the administrators) will give financial gifts
to persons, causes, events, charities and memorials in Jesse's name, particularly, but not limited
to Haida Gwaii, BC, Canada.
All funds raised will be used directly as gifts. There are absolutely no administration costs and
no salaries or expenses to be paid. (Thank you to Northern Savings Credit Union, Queen Charlotte
branch, for waiving all banking fees in connection with this Fund.)
Funds are raised through corporate donation, in memory donations by friends and family, through merchandise including "Jesse's Crew" shirts, Haida art, books; and other fund raising activities to be announced. Please contact us if you would like to donate. No donation is too small and all are gratefully appreciated and will be acknowledged.
There is such a need in this life - and so we will continue ongoing fundraising activities to ensure
we can help as many people as possible. Sometimes it's not the dollar amount that counts, it's just knowing that people care when you are going through something tough. And to you supporters,
remember that most of our money so far has been raised through the sale of $20 shirts!
Every penny adds up....

We have just concluded a VERY successful Purdy's Christmas Chocolate 2012 fundraiser on
Haida Gwaii and earned over $1,900 for the Jesse Fund!
WCR photographer Amanda Siebert has compiled a selection of prints from the Jesse Jones
Memorial Totem Pole, carved in 2012 by Jesse's dad (Haida carver Jimmy Jones) and cousin
(Jason Goetzinger). These are canvas prints 16" x 20" and available for a limited time for purchase for $350 each. If you are on Facebook, you can view these here.
