Our Story

At the heart of our foundation lies a story of love, loss, and a commitment to preventing others from experiencing the same pain we felt. Christopher Bremer, our beloved son, brother, uncle, and friend, left us too soon, just two weeks after celebrating his 30th birthday on July 17, 2020.


Chris’s smile, his don't-quit mentality, and his dedication to family and friends defined him. His love for the Cubs and Da Bears was only surpassed by his devotion to his family.


Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Chris was a funny, loving, and energetic young boy. From his early days playing hockey and baseball, to becoming the proud owner of YESCO Sign & Lighting, His journey was one of hard work and determination.


Chris's passing left a void that words can hardly fill. Yet, in his memory, we've established The Christopher Bremer Foundation with a mission to "Be a link by advocating connectedness and fostering resources for mental health and the prevention of suicide."


Through the foundation, we aim to be the bridge that connects those in need with the support and resources necessary for mental health and suicide prevention. Chris had an extraordinary ability to make everyone feel loved, and we are committed to carrying forward this legacy of love.
