In Memory and Honor of Ethan McCallister
Ethan McCallister , was a volunteer and supporter of Rebuilding Together Atlanta, whose life was taken tragically. Ethan will be missed dearly by the RTA organization and the families we serve.
He believed in the mission and dedicated himself to the service of those that needed safe and health housing. We were blessed to meet Ethan when he was the lead on the Turner Construction Company project in January of 2021. He reached out to RTA on his own because he "wanted to give back to the community." When the RTA team met with Ms. Gemes and her family, Ethan felt an immediate attachment to Ms. Gemes because she reminded him of his grandmother.
Ethan has forever touched the Rebuilding Together family and the lives of the Gemes family. "My family and I would like to thank the many volunteer that helped with the rail project for my grandmother. My grandma is very grateful and has already made use of it. You guys are God sent. Thank you."- Tamika, granddaughter
Because of Ethan's RTA experience and leadership among his peers, RTA launched a new partnership with Turner to have more of an impact on homeowners in Atlanta. This inaugural event will be during Turner's Founders Day event in May, which Ethan was slated to be the project manager volunteer. Turner Construction Company has continued its commitment to the projectand to do more in memory of Ethan's service to Rebuilding Together.
All the donations made will be used to directly support homeowners who are in need of home repairs and modifications. Ethan's legacy and impact will be felt for years to come.
