Dear JICHS Community:

Over the past two weeks, public and private parties, including many family and friends, have been searching for one of our recent and prominent graduates, Tristen Allen. Many have devoted countless hours, have expended extraordinary energy, and have displayed steadfast commitment in seeking a successful result.  All have been praying and hoping.

It is with deep sadness that James Island Charter High School has now been informed that Tristen is not likely to be found alive.  On behalf of our entire community, I would like to extend our deepest condolences to Samuel, Susan, Katherine, and to all who have known and loved Tristen.

Statement from media release - "The family extends heartfelt thanks to all who expressed care, concern and love during the last 11 days. It is through that support that they were able to continue on and ask everyone who knew Tristen and his boundless spirit, which lives on in all of his extended family, to help keep #41’s spirit alive."

 Additionally, the family has established the "ALL THAT IS #41" fund (http://www.gofundme.com/blnc3c) so that individuals and groups could donate to programs and causes that were important to Tristen.

 A celebration of Tristen Allen's life will take place at the James Island Charter High School stadium on Sunday, August 3rd, 2014, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM (In case of inclement weather, the JICHS cafeteria has been designated as the alternate location).

 James Island Charter High School remains dedicated to providing resources to anyone in need.  Faculty and staff are available to provide emotional support and assistance. Please call 762-2755 if you have any questions or concerns.

From a community of everlasting heartfelt sympathy,

Richard Gordon, Principal
