Yesterday, the NSBORO community learned about the tragic loss of an Algonquin student.
The community is rallying to show support for the family of Jon Niemi. As of this posting, close to $12,000 had been raised to help his family during this difficult time. The goal is $20,000.
A gofundme page set up to help the Niemi family reads:
There is no worse tragedy than the loss of a child. Today, the Niemi family is faced with that tragedy. Jon Niemi was only 16. While Jon suffered from health issues, his passing was unexpected. We hope to alleviate any financial stress of a funeral and other related expenses for the Niemi family as they grieve during this horrible time.
