Amador Supports the Family of Jon Pallesen, Swim Coach

Posted by AVHS Athletic Booster Club on Dec 21 2017 at 07:18PM PST

Dear Amador Sporting Community,

It is with heavy hearts that we have news to share about our former swimming coach, Jon Pallesen. About 10 days ago Jon, our past Amador swimming coach and friend, suffered a serious brain aneurysm. It was deeply serious and critical. Thankfully, Jon is improving each day and he’s now out of the ICU. His situation is still very difficult and he has a long, long recovery effort ahead of him. We want to help.

Jon’s mother and sister have approved a GoFundMe page: https://www.gofundme.com/jonpallesen. Funds collected in this fund will go toward Jon’s medical bills. Jon’s medical care costs will be significant as he spend the next several months in a rehabilitation facility.

Please visit the Go Fund Me page above and share the campaign with others in the community who may know Jon. If you think you can help financially, the family thanks you. Jon has been a friend of Amador swimming for many years. His coaching, partnership and encouragement has helped us become the swimming community we are. Please consider giving back to this remarkable coach and friend.

Thank you for your generosity and continued prayers for Jon and his family.
