Donor Tributes

The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank's mission is to fulfill the wishes of eye donors and their families to help another overcome blindness. The families of the donors below have chosen to honor the legacy left by their loved ones: the legacy of sight given to another through eye donation. Each of these donors moves, humbles and inspires us every day.

In Loving Memory of

Jerry Black

1970-2013

Jerry Black was an amazing man. An amazing husband. Amazing father. Jerry was such a social butterfly always wanting to make new friends or always the first one to help someone in need. My husband decided to be an organ and tissue donor after we lost our oldest daughter at the young age of 21 in 2010 when we had learned she was a donor. It inspired my husband so much the life she continued to give even in her death that he then decided to be a donor. Words can not express how very proud I am of the both of them. I can only hope that with there gifts it will inspire other people to do the same.
