We are devastated by the loss of Ari Schultz. Our deepest condolences are with the Schultz family, who we have gotten to know over past few months and will continue to support with interim housing during this difficult time. We were so happy to have been able to help Ari and his family in their time of need and will continue to support them while they get back on their feet. He was an inspiration to many including us here at Live4Evan.
Rest in peace, Ari <3
