As some of you might already know, our friends Jeff and Joan Shultz’s son, Ben, needs our prayers and support. He was gravely injured during a training exercise as a firefighter in Anchorage, Alaska on June 5th, 2017.  Jeff Schultz was the former owner of Alaska Stock and a familiar face at PACA/DMLA events.

Ben is now in Colorado at a specialty hospital for brain injuries.  There is a fund-raiser for his family scheduled for August 4th in Anchorage — see info below.  If you’d like to donate auction items to this fundraiser please contact: Megan Nicolet at Elite Sports Performance, one of the main sponsors of the event at: 907-952-3200 or

There is also a GoFundMe site for Ben’s Family that you can find here.

Jeff was a long-time member of PACA/DMLA and served as our treasurer for many years.  Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and to Ben.  I know this will be a long, tough road, so anything you can do will be deeply appreciated.
