We are honored to announce the Sea Girt Patriot Polar Plunge on Feb. 5th will be in memory of NJ State Trooper, Sgt. Juan Fajardo. He was also a Lieutenant in the NJ National Guard, befitting our beneficiary, the LIFT Fund for Veterans at Coastal Habitat for Humanity. Please see a note from Juan’s family below:

In early November we tragically lost Juan Fajardo who was a neighbor, a friend, and one of the most incredible people we knew. Juan just turned 41. He had a wife he adored like none other, and three beautiful children ages 5-12.  He was a state trooper and a national guardsman. Juan had the Governor’s security detail person. Coached kids in soccer and football. Fantastic sense of humor, and one of the most caring people we've ever known. And....the "Girt" military beach, was his happy place too!  Our whole community mourned his loss, and had a candlelight vigil in the park for him. For his funeral the military & state police gave him a full blown military funeral, including a fly over, at Brigadier General William C. Doyle Memorial Cemetery. That's just how great he was.
