I stumbled across a GoFundMe page yesterday for UL Women's Assistant Basketball Coach Deacon Jones and his family and I felt compelled to share their story. I'm also hoping you would consider helping out.

On June 4th of this year, Deacon and Tassala Jones, along with their two wonderful daughters lost everything when their home was destroyed in an early morning fire. The family was out of town at the time.

Coach Jones has been a member of the coaching staff for the last four years and he and his family have really embraced the UL and Acadiana communities. After all, Jones is a Lafayette native and a 1999 graduate of the University where he now coaches.

He and his family have never and would never ask for anything, so the basketball team have put together this GoFundMe account to help out their family member.

So, simply put, let's do this Acadiana! It's time to help a wonderful family and show them what all us Cajuns are capable of when we pull together to help out amazing people.
