Erin Hagedorn was Jon's [Founder of Family Lines] wife, partner and best friend of 23yrs. 

On July 7th, 2019 Erin tragically lost her life in an accident while on vacation with her family. The loss has been hard to understand. A bright light has left our life. However her radiance will still be seen in our memories of her - selflessness, hospitality, joy, beauty, intellect, care for the forgotten, love, and pride for her boys as well as her ability to always out fish Jon.

We have started this Scholarship Fund in honor of Erin. Her generosity was boundless and she always reminded us to "give it away". 

Who Is It For?

The Erin Hagedorn Scholarship is for the father left behind financially, spiritually, physically, and emotionally.

FAmily Lines fly fishing Academy

A percentage will be allocated for our new Family Lines Fly Fishing Academy [we will share more about this new program in the future]. This money will be used to help families participate in this new program. In honor of Erin and her heart for her community, we will emphasize local families including those families with children who have special needs.


We will allocate a percentage of this fund to be used for our Expeditions. These are the most costly [to us and the participant] however, they are the most impactful. 5-7 days of uninterrupted, intentional, facilitated time between a father and child while experiencing the trip of a lifetime. 


We will allocate a percentage of this fund to be used for our ministry partners or "Dadvocates" and their families to come and see for themselves what we are asking them to consider for the families they minister to in their communities. We also want to be able to provide scholarships for Church Leaders and Ministry Leaders. Children can and often do get left behind in the midst of all the "need" that comes with ministry leadership positions. We want to help reconnect and strengthen that relationship.  

"Erin always looked for the people left behind" - Jon Hagedorn

Thank you so much for taking the time to watch our video above and consider partnering with us in our efforts to fight absence in fatherhood through providing intentional presence for the restoration of their family line. 

For Restoration,

Jon Hagedorn | Founder
