In 2014 our host family is the Wilmots from Chicago’s Southside. Dan Wilmot, a Marist Alumni, was a hardworking Electrician at Meade Electric. Before having a family Dan served his country in the Air Force, retiring with the rank of sergeant. He was a man who juggled a packed schedule of school events, coaching sports, and multiple jobs; but always put his family first. Dan was 46 years old when he died of a fatal heart attack. Dan’s wife, Chris and two children, Jake and Jenna, were left unprepared for a life without their father. OFTK, heard of the Wilmot’s situation and knew we needed to help this family into the future.
