On December 1, 2016 Ariyana Jones, a beloved Country Day School teacher, was shot and killed in her home in Sacramento . Her husband and two young children were present (and unharmed).

Ariyana Jones was just 26 years old and was an assistant teacher in the pre-kindergarten class. She was described by colleagues as possessing a bright, joyful , light that shone in everything she did and included a dedication to bettering her community. In fact, Ariyana had recently started to organize a neighborhood watch in response to recent robberies near her home.

Students and faculty are heartbroken that a promising young life ended in such a tragic manner during the holiday season. The Country Day School community is a family in every sense of the word so we’re banding together to lift up and support Ariyana’s family.

Our hearts and support are with the family of Ariyana Jones through this difficult time. Sacramento Country Day School, family and friends have set up this GoFundMe page to raise money to cover expenses.

Our fundraising goal is $125,000, which will go towards immediate expenses and ongoing support for her children, aged 2 and 4. Every amount will help – and we appreciate your support.
