Marie and Ken Memories

Today We Remember Those Picture Perfect Times

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions for our club. At a time when we are celebrating how close we are to a new stadium, tragedy has befallen one of our families.

While we pause to remember the life of a wonderful mother and her two sons today, we have been heartened with how our soccer community has banded together to support Ken and Arabella in this time of sorrow and hardship.

As of yesterday, 485 donors from across the country and beyond have already contributed $13,250 to the Gemmell Fund in memory of Marie, Cole and Devin to help the family.

Our spirits have been lifted by this outpouring of generosity and support from our futbol family.

Join Mr. Plow & Santa friends

Soccer Community Comes Together to Help

Friends in Lot 8

Marie and Ken: Loved in Lot 8 & RFK

As the local news is filled with practically wall-to-wall coverage of the absolutely devastating news out of the Maryland plane crash in Gaithersburg, we have been heartened by the response by the soccer community to help one of our own.

For over a decade we have been blessed with Marie’s warmth and smile at our tailgates, we have had the chance to watch Arabelle and her brothers literally grow up at RFK enjoying matches from the Aerie and now are heartbroken for Ken and the family.

We have been stunned at the response since we set up the Gemmell Fund for those who wish to contribute in memory of Marie Wagner Gemmell and her two young sons Cole and Devin. Donations and words of sympathy have poured in from D.C. United supporters of every stripe to fans from around Major League Soccer to US Men’s National Team players overseas.

We thank all of those who have already responded and will have much more, but for now here is Ken’s reaction:

No words can describe the enormity of our loss and sadness over yesterday’s tragedy. We lost Marie, the love of my life and college sweetheart, and our two young, innocent and joyful sons – a loss that no person should ever endure. The outpouring of support has been overwhelming, and my daughter and I are appreciative for the prayers and well wishes from friends, neighbors and the community.

Our Team. Each Other. Our Community.
