Benefit fund for EJ Zelaya's family

$10,430 of $10k goal

Raised by 199 people in 27 months
Charlotte Gale  METAIRIE, LA
EJ Zelaya was a father, a fiance, a brother, a son, a friend who was taken too soon by a careless act of someone. He was involved in a fatal motorcycle accident when an drunk driver ran a stop sign, hit him, and continued to drive off, dragging him under the vehicle. This horrific accident has left his 2 small children without a father , and his loved ones are left to figure out how to give him a proper resting place. We have set up this memorial fund for EJ Zelaya's family. We are trying to help raise funds for his funeral expenses and life expenses for his fiance and 2 small children. Any size donation will help out and be considered a blessing.

I wasn't all that close with EJ, but I knew who he was and saw him a few times around the gym. Most importantly, I know Jill and her children and they are amazing people. I can't imagine how you feel right now, but I hope you realize that things happen for a reason, and you have full support from your fellow friends and family. I love you Jill! And am always thinking of you and your beautiful babies.
