Robert Stepanian Memorial Foundation

On October 20, 2018 we lost our cherished son, brother, uncle and friend, Robert Stepanian. He has touched the lives of so many through his work in the community, as a fixture at 24 Hour Fitness, and as the most valued employee of Jojo’s Pizza Kitchen for over 25 years. His passing has left a gaping hole in the hearts of so many.

As we mourn the loss of this  caring soul we  look forward for ways to continue his good works and honor his memory. Robert was a staunch believer in giving to those in need and made regular donations to many charities. He valued education and was so proud as his family and friends graduated from college.

It is with this in mind that we begin to build The Robert Stepanian Foundation. The foundation will raise funds for the Robert Stepanian Memorial Scholarship  and to continue charitable donations to the causes that were so important to him. We will also work to advocate for mental health awareness and suicide prevention to help stop this silent killer.

We appreciate your generous support as we turn this tragedy into something positive that will continue to honor Robert’s memory long into the future.

There Is No Grief Like The Grief That Does Not Speak
