After a plane crash that killed two people in Saskatchewan on Sept. 18, a GoFundme has been set up for one of the victims.
Jaden Hallman, a 22-year-old Cambridge native was among the two killed in the September crash. Mallory Siezar organized the campaign that has amassed over 80 donations totalling $12,000 of their $25,000 goal.
“No parent or family should have to experience the loss of a child. There are no words for this pain,” wrote Siezar on her GoFundme post. “In chatting with some mutual friends, we wanted to give those who may want to help but are not sure how an opportunity to help in a very impactful way.”
She reminds everyone to hug their loved ones close and to say I love you more often.
Hallman's mother Alanna Sisto-Hallman wrote in a Facebook post, “Our world has stopped, it’s hard to breathe.”
Sisto-Hallman is also owner operator of the Gator's Tail Sports Shack and Grill at 970 Franklin Blvd. The restaurant has been closed for the day so those who knew him can mourn their friend, co-worker, son and brother.
The crash happened approximately 11 km south of Shaunavon, Saskatchewan according to Shaunavon Fire and Rescue. Hallman was flying a Cessna 172 and departed from Swift Current, SK. The plane was headed to Estevan for a pipeline inspection.
The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is investigating.
An obituary says Jaden "passed away doing what he loved most."
Visitation is at Coutts Funeral Home on Oct. 2 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., followed Monday by a private funeral service.
