In May of 2011 Jason Kinzler passed away while running the Fifth Third Riverbank Run. Jason, a pillar of health and fitness, left behind his wife Kristi, and three beautiful children, ages 10, 8, and 6. Jason was the consummate family man, always putting his family first. In 2012 Kristi, along with some of the Kinzler’s closest friends began work on the Jason Kinzler Family First Foundation (JKFFF). With your assistance, the JKFFF will provide financial assistance to families with minor children who have experienced the unexpected loss of a primary care-giver.
