Dear Family & Friends,

As many of you know, Carla, Caleb, and I and our family lost our incredible, big-hearted, and brilliant 7-year-old son Calder “Mr. Awesome” Sloan. He passed away due to a tragic and bizarre accident.

He was so worshiped by us and his little brother Caleb. For those of you who knew him, you know you will never forget what a generous, spirited, bigger then life person he was. We were told a number of times by his teachers he would change the world. He changed ours during his much too short time with us.

We feel so blessed to call Calder Jacob Sloan our son.

Carla and I have felt such solace at the outpouring of wishes that we have received from friends, family, and business associates. You all are lifting us up in these dark hours. In lieu of gifts, we are asking for donations to be made to Calder’s School. Your donations are tax-deductible and will go toward establishing a legacy foundation in his honor.

Calder absolutely adored going to school and loved his friends, math, soccer, reading, and Hebrew class...really everything about it except for waking up early.

Caleb attends Lehrman and is receiving a great education. We love it that Caleb will be reminded of his beloved brother each day he goes to school.


The form is for credit card and check donations. If you simply wish to send the Sloan Family a message, please click HERE.
