Photos for Ty Fundraiser

Photo by Josh AinsworthMatt Payeur of Empire Imaging of Danville VT and Bob M. Montgomery Images have teamed up to raise money for Melissa Jenkin’s son, Ty.

As some of you may know, Melissa Jenkins went missing from her running vehicle, while her son Ty sat in his child seat. Tragically, she was discovered yesterday dead, the result of a unexplainable and horrific homicide—leaving her 2-year-old son Ty without his loving mother. Melissa was an amazing person, always smiling and always willing to help others. She was pursuing her master’s degree while teaching science at St. Johnsbury Academy. Her loss has shaken the entire community.

Our hope is that we can do our small part in making Ty’s life better after the tragic loss of his mother. We are both offering special galleries of images for this fundraiser.

Each 8x10 print is $20; 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Fund. Special thanks to Don Whipple of Kingdom Color and Imaging, who have generously donated all of the costs for making these prints.

To order a print, please visit the special galleries here:
