In lieu of flowers or donations in Robert Jason Phillips' memory, his family and friends would like to make a donation in his honor to the Reef Environmental Education Foundation, which works to educate and enlist divers in the conservation of marine habitats. Jason was on his way to becoming an avid scuba diver and had traveled recently to Honduras and Belize to aid local organizations in reef conservation. Some of his most beloved experiences were when he was exploring the world underwater, and his adventurous spirit thrived knowing that he was part of something bigger than himself. His last trip to Belize inspired him to do more in support of the environment and reef conservaiton, and we know that he would want his memory to carry on these efforts.
Thank you for your love, support and for helping us to honor Jason in the way that he would appreciate most.
Memorial Services will be held in Atlanta, GA on August 1, 2015.
A gathering will also take place in Chicago as well as NYC for all those who are unable to attend in Atlanta. Specific details for all of the above are forthcoming shortly.
