The family of a man who died unexpectedly will be hosting a blood drive in his name for the fourth year.

Jonathan Kwiatkowski, 21, of Wind Point, was killed by his neighbor on April 4, 2011.

While Jonathan’s death is tragic, his family hopes to help others. The last thing Jonathan wrote on his Facebook page was: “Heads up, Hearts Up, Hopes Up.” He was a student at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

Appointments are encouraged.
