Susan Mosure Memorial Fund

The Susan Mosure Memorial Fund was established in 2018 after she lost her battle with cancer in 2017. Susan was an enthusiastic advocate for children and adults with autism spectrum disorder. Her passion began once our son, Tyler was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) after months of relentless consultations, tests, and doctor visits. Susan immediately began to educate herself on the subject.  She devoured several stacks of books and countless research articles. Susan was Tyler’s strongest advocate. She turned over every stone and knocked through any barrier that stood in the way of Tyler getting the help he needed. I will forever be grateful for the years she spent imbedding herself into the autism community, navigating the bureaucracy to secure help for Tyler to ensure he had the best possible scenario to flourish.

About the Fund

Susan’s passion and dedication to help Tyler grew into her mission to help others facing the same challenges. She became the Finance Director for a school dedicated to kids with autism. She truly enjoyed working in this environment and was passionate about doing everything she could to ensure children had access to autism-related programs during the school district’s summer break. Maintaining social interaction and participating in engaging activities during the summer helps reduce the likelihood of academic and behavioral regression during the summer months. 

The mission of The Susan Mosure Memorial Fund is to provide financial support for the following:

 – Kids on the autism spectrum are able to participate in autism-related summer programs; and

– Teens and young adults on the autism spectrum have access to transition job training programs.

Susan Mosure was only 41 when she passed away in 2017 from Cholangiocarcinoma, also known as bile duct cancer.  Susan and I were married for 17 wonderful years.  She is also survived by our children, Bryn and Tyler; parents Dr. Richard “Dick” Soldner and Deanna Soldner; siblings Lori (Russ) Ballentine and Jeff (Martha) Soldner; in-laws Ted and Linda Mosure; sister-in-law Laurie Bertrand; nieces, Abbie, Emily, Elizabeth, Ashley, Kaitlyn and Finley; nephews, Michael and Jason; and many long-time friends.
