JEJ Memorial

This memorial fund has been created in honor of Johnny, Erik, and Jake. As you know, with the building of the new high school, the current memorial plaque will need to be relocated. The funds will be used to purchase a Mustang statue, which will be placed near the Leinbaugh Complex. The memorial plaque will be incorporated in the design of the area surrounding the statue.

If you would like to be a part of this memorial project, you may donate online through this website. (Please note that an 8% fee is subtracted from your online donation.)
