On July 16, 2o12, active U.S. Army soldier Steven Isris was killed in a motorcycle accident off Avenue P and East 8th Street, an accident we first wrote about when friends of Isris contacted us seeking information from the community about the accident. At the time Isris was in critical condition; he passed away a short time later.
He is survived by his loving family, friends, fiance, and unborn child. Steven was 23 years old when he passed away, and, in remembrance, his family is holding a fundraiser to raise money for his fiance Svetlana, and their child on the way.
The event is a poker night to be held on October 13, and donations collected will be used to establish the Steven Isris Fund for his family. Some donations will be used for raffles and prizes for the event that Steven’s family hopes to turn into an annual affair. You can donate money or find more information on the fundraiser here.
