Jeromy was born with a rare syndrome called Monosomy 9; only one in four million individuals are born with it. Jeromy has limited ability to speak but uses a communication device that helps him interact with others. Jeromy's life is not defined by his disability. He enjoys being an active and productive member in his community as he works at the Vocational Training Center and volunteers. He is well known around town for his infectious smile and love for all sports.
Our story begins with a few cousins discussing Jeromy and the influence he has had on them. They decided they wanted to celebrate Jeromy in a way that would give back to individuals with disabilities while honoring Jeromy's name. Thus, the Jeromy Brown Family Fund was established at Dakota Medical Foundation by a board of Jeromy's cousins in 2018. Jeromy has shown his cousins that a disability does not need to define a person. Our family has chosen to focus on the abilities and passions of each individual. Jeromy's love for bowling and February birthday inspired the idea for an annual bowling tournament to promote the inclusion and well-being of those with disabilities. All while celebrating Jeromy and the love his cousins have for him.
With the money raised during the first year, the JB Family Fund was able to donate to organizations in North Dakota such as TNT Fitness, Hope Inc., and Grand Forks Special Olympics all aiming to improve the health of those with disabilities in our community.
The Jeromy Brown Family Fund is as a donor advised fund hosted by the Dakota Medical Foundation. Giving Hearts Day gifts can be directed to www.givingheartsday.org: DMF - Jeromy Brown Family Fund
