The EPICS J.R. Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit organization, was established in January of 2018 by Vanessa Cox in tribute to the philanthropic legacy of her brother and sister-in-law, John E. Davis and Rose E. Lane-Davis. The two are honored for their years and countless hours of dedication to bettering the lives of underserved youth, adults and families and for their commitment to helping those facing adversity find hope. As someone who benefited from their unselfish giving, commitment, dedication, faith, and devotion to family and community, Vanessa was inspired to establish this foundation in John and Rose’s name to continue the philanthropic efforts charitable to the community that they so deeply loved.
