On May 20, 2017, Jacob Juneau, an OASD graduate, died of a sudden illness at 20 years old. Jacob's life was a reflection of his character: playful, affirming, creative and kind. In honor of that very life, and because his mother Carol is a staff member at Ixonia Elementary, we would like to create something to honor Jacob's memory and to impact the lives of other children.
Many of us have been looking for a way to honor his memory and have settled on an idea that addresses meaning and permanence. With your help, we hope to provide musical playground equipment in Jacob’s memory and to commemorate his life. Not only was Jacob a loving friend he was also passionate about music. We feel this is a meaningful gesture to honor him. The musical space at Ixonia Elementary will give students the opportunity to make music and be creative outdoors. Several instrumental pieces have been chosen to create a “musical garden” in honor of Jacob.
At this time, we invite you to participate in honoring Jacob by supporting this project and donating if possible, to invest in the following equipment:
- Freestanding, double player, metal chimes: $3,899.00
- Cabasas: $859.00
- Bongo Drums:$1409.00
- Commemorative plaque:$100.00
- Our goal is $4000.00
Any donation made to this project will go directly to the specific pieces outlined above, and if we exceed our goal it will only allow us to choose superior equipment, more pieces, and even give to our music department. All donations are tax deductible.
*Direct donations via check can be made out to Ixonia PTO and mailed to:
N8425 North Street
Ixonia, WI 53036
(please note “Jacob Juneau musical project” on the check memo or envelope and include your name, address, and email)
