Our thoughts are with you, Jamie

Indy Photographer, Jamie Vester, lost her husband, Jim, last week in a horrible situation over an iPad on Craiglist deal that went terribly wrong.  Jim and Jamie have a one-year-old son, Gavin, and are definitely in need of our thoughts, help and prayers.  Whether we have worked with Jamie in the event industry, know Jamie or are just saddened, all of us in the event world and beyond all have our thoughts and prayers with Jamie, family and friends during this devastating loss.  Jamie said in her Facebook Post, "My husband Jim Vester was killed last night while trying to do a Craigslist deal that obviously was a hoax. He was a wonderful husband and father, and I couldn't have asked for a better man. I loved him more than words can express. Thank you everyone for your prayers and messages I have already received from family, friends, and the photography community." 

This has been the worst two days of my life. My husband Jim Vester was killed last night while trying to do a Craigslist deal that obviously was a hoax. He was a wonderful husband and father, and I couldn't have asked for a better man. I loved him more than words can express. Thank you everyone for your prayers and messages I have already received from family, friends, and the photography community. We have started a page for Jim that I will post in the comments. Obviously I won't be doing any sessions for the month of December as I am grieving the loss of this wonderful man. <3
We are thinking of Jamie today and forever will be in our hearts.  Today is Jim's funeral and all of us in the ISES Indana Community and Beyond send Jamie and her family much love and prayers sent your way.  Please consider donating during this season of giving to this self employed photographer as she raises her son alone after the tragic loss of her husband.  Here is a link to give to the Vester Family, if you are able and feel led:

We know Jamie and her family appreciate any help you can give.  Sincerely, all of the ISES Indiana Board of Directors and Members
