Kelli Campbell

Spokesperson, Folds of Honor

Kelli Campbell lost her husband, Major Shawn Campbell, in a Marine Corps helicopter collision in Hawaii on January 14, 2016.

She left Hawaii and moved to Kansas City to be close to family. Suddenly uprooted from everything familiar, Kelli and her four children, Tristan, Kenna, Kate and Donovan, faced the daunting task of starting a life from scratch. Whitefield Academy opened their doors to the Campbells and Kelli enrolled her previously homeschooled children.

The Whitefield community quickly became like family and Kelli’s children are thriving in a safe, loving, and academically excellent environment. Kelli believes that without Folds of Honor, she would not have known how or where to begin a new life.

While the Campbell family will always grieve for their hero, husband, and father, they are joyful and full of hope for the future.

Today, Kelli works with the Kansas City chapter of Folds of Honor, grateful to be able help pass on the support and hope she was given, and to continue honoring the legacy of her husband and all those who serve our nation.
