Published October 29, 2021

NORTHVALE, N.J. (BRAIN) — Funeral services for Jamis Bicycles employee Jeanette Willem will be Monday at Vander Plaat Caggiano Funeral Home from 4-8 p.m. in Fair Lawn, New Jersey.

Willem's brother, Matt Willem, provided the update on his Facebook page on Friday.

Jeanette Willem worked for G. Joannou Cycle Co. Inc. for about 20 years and was well known to retailers and industry members. G. Joannou owns and distributes Jamis and other brands. Warehouse worker Christian V. Giron, 24, was arrested Wednesday on charges of murder, weapon possession, and hindering his own arrest in connection to Willem's death. 

Matthew Willem, who lives in Deltona, Florida, set up a GoFundMe page on Thursday with a goal of raising $5,000 to assist with the family's memorial and travel costs. The fund had raised nearly $8,000 as of Friday afternoon.

A second GoFundMe page, established by Joanna Berghuys, also was established Thursday for Jeanette's daughter, Mackenzie. These funds will be placed into a savings account to benefit her. As of Friday afternoon, $6,300 had been raised, with the goal being $10,000.
