Project Description

Matthew Reiser died peacefully on February 2, 2016, the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple.

Matt grew up in Ventura County and attended Oxnard High School.  He then attended Thomas Aquinas College (class of ’00), where he met his future wife Sharon (’99). They got married after they graduated from TAC and eventually made their home in Ventura.  Matt cared about his community. He was a very active member of the Knights of Columbus at the Ventura Mission and always was willing to help those in need. Sharon currently works in the development at TAC.

Matt spent the night of February 1 at St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Oxnard. The TAC community gathered at the chapel to pray for him in the morning. Sadly, he passed away due to liver failure that evening. Fr. Paul Raftery, O.P, head chaplain of the college, anointed him and was with Matt and family during this difficult time.

I got the opportunity to meet Sharon Reiser my freshman year.  I needed a way to commute from Ventura to Thomas Aquinas College.  She was willing to help without hesitating.  She helped me when I needed it the most.  It is time for me to return the favor.

I created this page in order to help Sharon cover the funeral costs. Anything that you can contribute helps. She is very grateful for the support of those around her.

Please pray for the soul of Matt and the consolation of Sharon and his family.
