On the morning of June 4, 2015, Joseph M. Fannell was on his way to work when a driver sped through a red light and struck his car broadside. The next day, Joseph died as a result of the injuries he suffered in the crash. Just days following his tragic death, the Joseph M. Fannell Memorial Fund was established by the family to create and support programs aimed to help youth overcome obstacles and reach their full potential.
Joseph was a young man of many talents. In addition to working with his dad full time, in his spare time, he enjoyed performing spoken word, writing poetry, singing, playing the piano (by ear), drawing and gaming. He also had his own YouTube channel where he and some of his friends created video game enhancements.
In addition, as one who was bullied, Joseph wanted to share his experiences with those in high school who may have been victims of bullying. He wanted to encourage students to seek help to overcome bullying and achieve their goals in school and beyond.
To realize Joe’s dream, the Foundation endeavors to support local and national programs that seek to stop bullying.
