Important Jerome Charles Bench Memorial Fund
Jerome Charles Bench Memorial Fund
Shortly before this year’s Bash at the National Corvette Museum, the Corvette family lost an important team member. Jerome Charles, Harlan’s father, passed away suddenly. Jerry was cremated immediately with no funeral or memorial service to mark his passing. The family has had no closure nor have the people who love Harlan had a way to support him in his grief.
The Corvette program team, Bowling Green Assembly Plant and the National Corvette Museum want to change that. The Corvette Design studio is creating a graphic for the bench in dedication of Harlan and his father's shared love of Corvettes. In this way, the Charles family will have an appropriate memorial for Jerry.
Harlan has dedicated his life to the Corvette community. No individual has put more of his heart and soul into the car, the hobby and the people. We all saw him at this year’s Bash despite his father’s death. It is our turn to support him.
Please help make this idea a reality by making your tax-deductible contribution to the Jerome Charles memorial bench fund.

Gone but not forgotten
A Memorial Bench at the Museum is a wonderful way to demonstrate appreciation for the family's love for and dedication to the Corvette and its Community. Thank you for sharing this opportunity with us.
My condolences to Harlan and the entire Corvette Team.
Edit: I've moved this thread to the Assembly Plant and NCM News Forum.
