We are thrilled to share with you the brief biographies of Word of Honor Fund's leadership team. All are volunteering their time, energy, passion and expertise to ensure that milestone events for children of our fallen heroes are honored.
Louis is Word of Honor Fund’s founder. His passion and loyalty to the Naval Special Operations community has created this mentorship program for the children of fallen heros and friends. He and his wife, Rosalie, continue to be closely connected to the Naval Special Operations community, and maintain strong relationships with past and present command families.
Vice-President, Administrative Director
Rosalie works closely with the Family Support Director. Her motivation to outreach is fueled by her familiarity of the community and their families. Rosalie’s nurturing spirit and 16 years as a military spouse have been instrumental in developing the supporting architecture of the fund. When not busy as a volunteer, Rosalie is a Registered Nurse Practitioner and most proudly, a blessed wife and mother of three young children.
Secretary, Fund Development Director
Since its inception, Mari’s dedication to growing the Word of Honor fund along with her unswerving patriotism, underpins the fund’s mission. Mari is the point person for donors and those who want to host fundraising events for the benefit of Word of Honor Fund. Her fundraising and extensive event-hosting experiences are central to the successful development of the fund. Mari and her husband Gary have two daughters, one son, eight grandchildren and live in Idaho.
Leslie’s professional experience is in the food and beverage industry but has spent the past 14 years in the non-profit world, both as a volunteer and Board Member. Her focus is on children and those affected by physical and emotional disabilities, serving on development and fundraising committees.
Leslie lives in Idaho and has two grown sons. Her role in Word of Honor Fund will be special events, donor relations, and Fund communications.
Our Mission Statement
Word of Honor Fund provides a continuum of support that facilitates milestone events for the surviving children of SEALs and Special Operations personnel who die while assigned to a select Naval Special Operations Group.
Our word is our bond and it is the purest form of trust. The most sacred of all is a father's promise to his children. Word of Honor Fund is committed to fulfilling the intentions of our fallen heroes by ensuring his children experience life as he had planned before his sacrifice. His untimely passing challenges his promise.
Who will honor his word? We will...
