Zarzaur Law, P.A. will be hosting a fundraiser for Capt. Jeff Kuss’ family during July’s Gallery Night on Friday, July 22 starting at 6 p.m.
The monthly Gallery Night event, Legal Graffiti, aims to contribute to the GoFundMe account that has yet to meet it’s $500,000 goal.
“We saw a way to get involved in the donation process. It’s such an unfortunate situation and I knew the GoFundMe goal for the Kuss family hadn’t been met yet. My firm and I thought this could help his family during such a trying time,” Joe Zarzaur of Zarzaur Law, P.A. said.
Capt. Kuss was participating in a pre-show warm-up in Smyrna, Tennessee, when his F/A-18 went down. Multiple witnesses captured video footage of the fiery fall and the explosion and black mushroom cloud that followed. An investigation into what caused the crash is still underway.
Capt. Kuss left behind a wife, Christina, and two small children, 4-year-old Calvin and 1-year-old Sloane. A Go Fund Me account with a goal of $500,000 was set up to ensure Kuss’ wife and children would be taken care of. Thus far, over 75 percent of that goal has been met.
Christina Kuss and children will be briefly attending Gallery Night and Legal Graffiti this Friday to show their appreciation and support for those who have donated thus far.
“Navigating life without Jeff is terrifying and overwhelming,” Christina said on the fundraising page, “but I feel your love and appreciate this support more than I can say.”
