The IAA offers deepest sympathies and prayers to the Cottor family

On the morning of December 7, 2018, Jonathan Cottor’s son, Ryan, died from unexpected complications of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. He died peacefully, surrounded by his family and the caring team at Ryan House.
The loss of a child leaves a heartache that no one can heal. But, Ryan’s strength and his incredible life journey live on at the Ryan House in Phoenix.
In lieu of flowers, people are urged to donate to Ryan House or other charitable organizations. The IAA organization will be donating to Ryan House in honor of Ryan, his father Jonathan, his mother Holly and his brother Ethan.
There is a celebration of life at Neeb Hall at Arizona State University on Dec. 19 at 3:30 p.m. It will also be streamed on the Ryan’s House Facebook page.
Ryan House was started by Jonathan and Holly Cottor to provide respite care, end-of-life care and appropriate family activities in a supportive, home-like setting. Ryan’s journey was the inspiration for Jonathan and Holly Cottor to create Ryan House in Phoenix to embrace all children and their families as they navigate the difficult path of a child’s life-limiting disease, at no cost to the families.
Our thoughts and prayers
are with the Cottor family
during this very difficult time.
