Go Fund Me campaign to support daughters after trampoline tragedy

“He was an amazing daddy to his little girls who he just loved more than life itself”

A fund has been set up for the daughters of Jay Greenwood, after he died at a Richmond trampoline park on Jan.20.

Greenwood was with his two children when he suffered a fatal brain and spinal cord injury after jumping into a foam pit at Richmond Extreme Air Park.

Described as the biggest-hearted and most selfless person his family and friends have ever known, the 46-year-old contractor from Victoria “was an amazing daddy to his little girls who he just loved more than life itself,” his sister, Adrienne Leigh Greenwood wrote in a Facebook post.

The fund, set up to show support to Jay’s family “during this heartbreaking transition,” has raised over $8,000 in the first three days.

See the website for more information.

Jay Greenwood’s big heart will live on, as he was approved as an organ donor.

“Jay’s final great gift was that of life to someone else with his heart of gold,” reads the fund website.
