Matt served in the US Army and was an Iraq War veteran, earning the Army Commendation Medal in addition to seven medals and ribbons. In August 2014, one week before his 25th birthday, Matt died of catastrophic injuries after being hit by a car while helping a person with their disabled vehicle. Matt’s heart and kidney live on in those who were given the Gift of Life, and his exuberant and kind spirit prevails. Matt’s family is very grateful for the love, kindness and support they have received, the students’ amazing talent and commitment, and the many generous donations given in Matt’s memory to Youth Art For Healing.
