Mission & History
Connected Forever is a local non-profit organization founded by Jesse & Tracy Pella in honor of their sons, Cooper & Cohen. On June 1, 2011, Cooper and Cohen were born at 23 weeks 4 days gestation. Cohen became a heavenly angel that day. Cooper, weighing only 14.8 ounces, was able to be home with his family after spending 134 days in the NICU. During their journey, Jesse & Tracy were surrounded by an amazing support system thanks to family and friends. Connected Forever was established so that no family has to endure a similar journey alone.
