We are raising funds to help replace the home the Scholls lost to the fire that was set to cover up the murder of their daughter, Jessica.

Many of you know Doug, Stephanie & Jessica Scholl's story. One morning in May, just before school, Jessica was brutally and fatally beaten and stabbed, and the family home was set on fire to try to cover the crime. Jessica's ex-boyfriend is awaiting trial for that murder. Over the last few months, in addition to dealing with the loss of their only child, Doug and Stephanie have had to move from their home of 15 years and battle with their insurance company about their house. The insurance company wanted to just repair the damage, the Scholl's want to replace the home so they don't have to live with that final horrific memory. Their only wish is to stay in the place where Jessica grew up, but not have to live in the house where she was taken from them.

The insurance company finally allowed them to demolish the house, but won't settle on an amount that's enough for a complete rebuild. We would like your help in making up the difference needed to help Doug and Stephanie finish the work and allow the family to come home again. Please hug your children, remember that tragedy can befall even the best of us, and do what you can to help Doug and Stephanie rebuild their lives. Thank you!
