Our son left a wonderful legacy...
Chase was 18 years old and taken from this world by the hands of violence way too young. He was smart, funny, kind, generous, selfless and everything in between. He loved cheeseburgers, tacos, chorizo, Oreos, mint chocolate chip ice cream and his sister’s homemade chocolate chip cookies. He was supposed to graduate high school in May and had just started DoorDashing. He loved hanging out with his friends, but also loved hanging out with his family. He loved playing baseball when he was younger, and always enjoyed working out on his pullup bar and jogging. He loved his younger sister and brother so much, and although they would fight, he always took such good care of them. When Chase turned 16, he chose to become an organ donor. Then again when he renewed his license in 2020, he re-registered as an eye, organ and tissue donor. He knew from a very young age that he wanted to extend the gift of life to others. His father and I then chose to extend his gifts to further research because we know that Chase would have wanted that. Even though we can no longer hug our son or hold him tight, he was able to save five lives with his organs, and so many more to come from his eyes and tissues. What a wonderful legacy our son left behind.
