Brother of USMC Cpl. Daegan Page
Garrett's entire life has been community centered and dedicated to helping others. An Eagle Scout he had a very active scouting presence as a leader at troop and council levels. At Millard South High School he continuously demonstrated leadership as a DECA board member, school store manager, peer mediation counselor, and as a member of LEO (Lions) club, environmental club, and the principals advisory board.
In his early 20's Garrett joined the AmeriCorps serving refugee families, furnishing apartments and assisting with basic household tasks. He then became a refugee reception & placement case manager where he received & assisted special immigrant visa (brave and trusted people who had helped the Allied troops during the war and whose lives were now in danger) recipients from Iraq and Afghanistan into the Omaha metro area. Looking to broaden his community reach, Garrett pivoted his career path and spent several years as a director at one of the region's largest homeless shelters and is now in management at a nonprofit homebuilder. Over the years Garrett has served on other nonprofit boards (religious and food based), been active in the volunteer management consortium, and volunteered his time for several other organizations.
In the days following the death of his younger brother, Corporal Daegan Page, Garrett realized he needed to turn his grief into action. He was amazed by the support of the local community, the nation, and the asks for direction on giving to a memorial fund in Daegan's honor. Garrett took the initiative to build a website to showcase his brothers life and sacrifice, as well as set up online donation processing to fulfill this request. That memorial fund turned into the Corporal Daegan Page Foundation.
