Known for his larger-than-life personality and even bigger heart, Eli Bussotti was a typical 17-year-old student at Highlands High School
finishing up his senior year. Described as kind and compassionate, it’s no surprise that Eli made the selfless decision to register as an organ donor shortly before he tragically lost his life in a car accident. Eli’s heroic decision helped save eight lives across the United States, including Chad Ravotti, who happened to live just five miles away. While Eli’s contagious smile will never be matched and the devastation felt by his loss will never subside, his loved ones are comforted by his life-saving decision and know that the love Eli was surrounded with during his time on earth is now felt by the recipients of his gifts.
