Frog Fuel Patriot Series - SO1 Jesse Pittman



Frog Fuel Patriot Series is a Memorial Roast Series that is very personal to me and my family. The idea grew from the Memorial Roast we created to honor my son, Kevin Ebbert. Kevin was a Navy SEAL killed in Afghanistan on November 24, 2012. Please read about Kevin on his Page.

I have received so many wonderful notes from folks who purchased Frog Fuel in Kevin’s honor. I have met many other Gold Star parents whose Navy SEAL sons were lost. Remembering our lost loved ones keeps them alive and helps a grieving parent continue forward. Many of these parents, spouses, and siblings support the memory of their heroes through volunteer work and by supporting individual foundations and memorial funds. Talking with many of them, it was clear that all of us wanted to keep our heroes’ memories alive and make a positive difference as a group. From those conversations, Frog Fuel Patriot Series was born.

100% of the net proceeds from every bag of Frog Fuel Patriot Series Koffee is donated to the Navy SEAL Foundation. The Navy SEAL Foundation provides immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and its families. For more info, please visit

Each man honored here is remembered by their families, friends and teammates. They gave their lives as Navy SEALs in the line of duty, caring for their teammates, for the love of their families and communities. Thank you for reading about them and keeping their memories alive. Thank you for your purchase and the support it provides to the families of these heroes through the Navy SEAL Foundation.

SO1 Jesse Pittman

esse Pittman was born and raised in the redwoods of Northern California. As a young man, he spent two seasons as a wild land fire fighter with Cal-Fire before he joined the United States Navy to become a SEAL commando. After completing his third deployment, Jesse volunteered to do another back-to-back. Jesse had a saying among his teammates, “I don’t run, I charge.” On August 6, 2011, Jesse was one of 31 American heroes lost in a helicopter crash over Afghanistan. Jesse died while living a life dedicated to service and conquering challenges. His next goal was to attend college and earn his bachelor’s degree. Now Jesse’s wish will carry on through our Scholarship program.

The proceeds from Jesse Pittman Fund sales are used to support a college scholarship that fulfills Jesse’s dream. One student from Jesse’s hometown area in Mendocino County, CA can follow in Jesse’s footsteps by obtaining their college degree.
