On December 27 of 2014, my wife and mother of our two boys passed away after her 14 year battle with breast cancer. Since her passing I have been asked countless times if there was going to be any kind of a fund set up in her name. After much consideration I have come to the conclusion that no one will feel the loss more, nor be as negatively impacted, as our youngest son, Joel.
If you’ve ever met Joel you know he is as special as they come.
Two characteristics about Joel that have never changed are:
- He has never met a stranger, and
- He has never met a woman that didn’t love him
Although Joel has Down Syndrome, we have never treated him as such, nor has he lived life less. We have always held him to high standards and pushed him to be the best he could be, and Joel has responded by accomplishing amazing things. If you would like to be part of Joel’s future, you can contribute to “Joel’s Future” fund at:
Joel Zettel acct.
East Idaho Credit Union
P.O. Box 262
Challis, ID 83226
Contributing to the fund is not the only way that you can be a part of Joel’s future. You could consider including him in your next adventure, in the workplace, or practically anything you think would be beneficial for Joel and yourself. We also encourage everyone interested to visit Joel’s website Joel Zettel. This website was designed to jump start Joel’s entrepreneur occupation while bringing forth awareness of his situation and others much like him.
On behalf of Michelle and the boys, I would like to thank everyone for their kindness to the Zettels over the years.
