We wanted to take a few minutes to pay tribute and respects to our dear friend Jonathan Pitre, and express our deepest sympathies to his mother Tina Boileau and the rest of his family and friends.
From the first time we had the privilege of meeting Jonathan, it was clear that he was a very special person. His courage, strength, and humility should serve as an example to us all. The work that he and his mother have completed for Debra Canada is remarkable, and their family has left a lasting impact on so many communities.
When Jonathan and Tina left for Minnesota, we wanted to do something to help them on this difficult journey. When we started the GoFundMe page, we had modest expectations. But we were shocked by the outcome and the community’s generosity. One thing was clear, Jonathan and Tina had a big team behind them rooting for them.
It was an honor and a pleasure to be able to help them, even in this small way. Jonathan’s kindness, generosity of character, and strength will always be remembered. This special person will hold a place in our thoughts and hearts forever.
