EVA, Ala. (WHNT) – Friends and community members are coming together to support volunteer firefighter Jantzen Frazier’s wife and four daughters. Frazier died after the fire truck he was driving flipped and slammed into a power pole on his way to a house fire in Morgan County, Thursday afternoon.

During a time when his family must be feeling tremendous pain, the community wants to do all it can to let them know they have people to lean on.

Family friends and acquaintances have started a memorial fund to support Frazier’s wife and four daughters. 

“In a community this small we all help others. That`s what we’ve been taught,” said Tasha Caudle, whose daughter attended Head Start with Jantzen’s daughter. 

Becki Bingham’s daughter also attended the program with Jantzen’s 4-year-old, and graduated from high school with Jantzen

“His family sacrificed so much, with him being overseas and now they need help. So we are doing what we can,” said Bingham.

Bingham and Caudle admit, they don’t know Leslie Frazier as well as they knew her husband, but they know her need, and they want Leslie to know she has a community who is there for her through the most difficult times.

You can donate to the Jantzen Frazier Memorial Fund at any Eva Bank. Money donated to the Eva Volunteer Fire Department will also go to help the family. Donation locations are at Jack’s Foodland, Eva Exon Station, Wagon Wheel Restaurant, and Bobby’s Fisherman’s Catch Restaurant.
