It is with extreme sadness that we honor the far too short life of Justus Daniel Cole who died in a tragic accident at home earlier today. The youngest son of Paul Cole and Adriana Cole always had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eyes.
There is a go fund me account ( http://www.gofundme.com/justuscole ) right now and a Cole Family Fund account that should be ready in the next day to help the family cover funeral and other unexpected expenses during this time of need.
Please join us in helping out members of our Oregon BMX family.
Info from the Oregon BMX Facebook page.

Quick update. This morning I was able to go to the US Bank in Sherwood. This is where the Cole family banks. I was able set up a Justus Cole Memorial Fund. This will give Paul and Adriana instant access to funds that will be needed to help with the upcoming service and other needs. This will also allow them to continue to use the account in Justus’ name for any future needs. The staff at US Bank knew the Cole family and already stated to donate money. We need to get this information out not only to the BMX community but others as well. I have had dozens of phone calls from citizens this morning in the Sherwood Community that want to help, and even the Police Department reached out and gave their condolences. Lets help the Cole family and give them all the help they need
Please go to any US Bank and make a cash donation/ Check Donation. All you have to say is its for the Justus Cole Memorial Fund. We encourage you to donate here for the ease of access to the family.US Bank is also anonymous, as some people prefer. Also there is a gofundme page as well if you prefer. Lets help spread the word. Please share this and lets get this Viral.
