James Eunice went missing on Jan. 15, 2011, while duck hunting with a friend at Ocean Pond, just south of Valdosta, Georgia. During the 17-day search that followed, an unbelievable story unfolded about an ordinary young man surrendered to an extraordinary God who made a difference by making a positive impact on the lives of everyone he encountered. When asked by his friends what he wanted to do after graduation, James would reply, “All I want to do is make a difference in people’s lives.”
Through the generosity and support of an amazing community, The James Eunice Charity Fund was born. The fund seeks to continue James’ story and legacy, and has donated over $300,000 to the community through local charities and presented 185 scholarships to graduating seniors from over 15 area high schools. James’ parents continue to share James’ story with churches, schools, FCA huddles, and civic organizations. They are available to share an incredible story about an ordinary young man whose life continues to impact others, and ask for nothing more than the opportunity to share James’ story and legacy.
A portion of the proceeds of the James Eunice Tee will go to the James Eunice Charity Fund.
