Fund established to help family of BLET member who is in intensive care

CLEVELAND, August 19 — BLET member Jared W. McNew is in a fight for his life.

The 40-year-old Local Chairman of Division 130 (Kansas City, Kan.) was involved in a motorcycle crash and has been in intensive care for over three weeks. He sustained a number of critical injuries and has endured several surgeries since.

Brian Kelley, Chairman of the BLET Missouri State Legislative Board, reports that Brother McNew and his wife Julie have two daughters: Jennifer, 18, and Jasmine, 15.

“The family is devastated and they need all the help they can get,” Brother Kelley said.

The Division has established a fund to help the family offset the costs of medical treatments, recovery and rehabilitation, as well as everyday living expenses. Those wishing to do so should make donations payable to the “Jared McNew Fund” and mail to:

Unity One Credit Union
4150 Kansas Avenue
Kansas City, KS 66106-1257
Jared McNew Fund


Anyone wishing to send a card or other well wishes may do so by writing:

Jared and Julie McNew
15305 N.W. 125th Street
Platte City, MO 64079


“Please consider sending a donation even if it is only $5 or $10 dollars,” Brother Kelley said. “That money can be used to offset the cost of driving between their home and the hospital.”

Brother McNew’s intensive care unit is at a hospital over 25 miles away from the McNew residence. “It is not an easy commute, especially during rush hour,” Brother Kelley said.

“Thank you in advance for helping the McNew family out and for thinking of them during these tragic times,” Brother Kelley said.
