Michael was 25 years old on June 15, 2008 when he died on the job as a truck driver in training with Star Transport, Inc. out of Morton, IL from a blood clot on the job related death but the company failed to bring Michael's body home from TN where he died and the company did not support the family with a card, flowers or a card of sympathy and no one from the company sent acknowledgement to the funeral, as well as Illinois workman's compensation denied claim saying it was not work related after all the facts was presented to the courts to justify a work related claim; this resulted in the widow mother having to pay to bring his body home from TN and burial from money that would have helped in her retirement years as well as her son Michael was her helper after the death of his father and her husband; but now his grave goes unmark and we the family do not have the funds to place a decent marker on his grave; this case went as far as the Appellate court and the Supreme Court of Illinois refused to hear the case. We need help to get a marker for a young man who gave his life on a job to help his family.
