Jennifer Bragg Capobianco Memorial Fund

Those who are members of's eGroups Mailing List probably already know about this, but for those of you who aren't on that list, please read the below paragraph. This was started by Boston EMS and they are hoping to make this a successful fund in memory of a Boston EMT's wife, who was one of seven killed a few weeks ago at Edgewater Technologies when an idiot went on a shooting rampage. This is a very good cause and if you need any information, you can go to:

Dear Friends:

As some of you may have read in the media, there was an EMS connection to the senseless shooting at Edgewater Technologies, which claimed the lives of 7 people a few weeks ago. Jennifer Bragg Capobianco, the 29 year-old wife of Boston EMT Jeff Capobianco, was among the victims. Jeff and Jennifer had been married for 2 short years, and Jen had just returned from maternity leave where she cared for the couple’s 10-week-old daughter.

Jennifer was, by all accounts, a wonderful person. This tragedy has devastated her husband, family and friends. As EMS professionals, we often find ourselves asking the question; why do bad things happen to good people? But, we never let that question keep us from assisting someone who needs our help. Now, the employees of Boston EMS have decided to support a fund, named in Jennifer’s honor, to try and bring small measure of goodness to this awful event.

The Jennifer Bragg Capobianco Memorial Fund, established by friends of Jennifer, will be used to support our colleague EMT Jeff Capobianco, and his daughter Eva. But, it will also serve as a living memorial to Jennifer, with a portion of the money funding violence prevention initiatives and programs.

We held a kickoff meeting last Thursday that went very well. Our plan is to raise as much money as possible for the fund for the next 30 days, ending on February 9, 2001. We are reaching out to EMS providers throughout the country to help us in this effort to care for one of our own.

We can’t change the terrible thing that happened to 7 innocent people three weeks ago in Wakefield, but we can do our best to help make life a little bit easier for our EMS brother and his young daughter. Please be as generous as you can with your individual and/or corporate contribution.
