On August 30, 2018 the world unexpectedly lost one of its very best souls. In the words of his beloved life, Alison, "Josh was a loving father, dedicated husband, brother, son and friend. He loved to be surrounded by good friends and football. He lived by the verse 'For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.' 2 Timothy 1:7. His passion for service and boldness in action was evident in all areas of his life. Of his many achievements, he was most proud of his three boys who will carry his legacy forward."

Josh "JB" Burgess was a Lt. Col. in the United States Air Force, and lived each day with a selfless and compassionate heart - not just towards his family, or towards his friends, or towards his country, but towards every person he encountered. You couldn't pass by Josh without receiving a contagious smile and a genuine, "How are you?" His memory is one that inspires each of us to love better, be better, and do better for others. For those who have met JB, you know that your life was instantly blessed by his presence.

Josh leaves behind a loving, beautiful, and fiercely strong wife, Alison, and three precious sons - Wyatt (15), Landon (12), and Everett (10). No one loved his boys more than Josh did, and it is in that same spirit we are asking people to give. In the midst of all the transitions the Burgess family will face with Josh's passing, we want to ensure the boys and their unique needs are fully taken care of. Please join us in showering the Burgess Boys with the fierce and passionate love that their father has shown to so many of us!

***All money raised will go directly to an account for the boys***
