More Tragedy

It has suddenly become a very difficult week. Yesterday I learned another shocking event happened in Portland earlier this week. Friend and kink ally Jakob Jay, well known Portland DJ, hairstylist and community supporter and organizer was stabbed in the lobby of Pacific Towers early this week and is in a Portland hospital ICU. He is in critical condition, in a medically-induced coma, and awaiting further surgeries as of 10am on 5/11/17. At this time the attacker is at large and Jakob's family is fully cooperating with police during their investigation.
KATU coverage of family statement
His family is not accepting visitors at the hospital and their phones are being inundated with calls and texts which make it difficult to engage police and immediate family. They have a support network that is helping them and have asked friends to help raise funds to cover his medical costs and lost wages. At this time they are solely focused on his health and cooperating with the investigation.

Please donate money to help with Jakob's recovery and rehabilitation here.
