In memory of Isamaeli Mata’afa
Hi, my name is Mitaina Mata'afa; Isamaeli Mata'afa is my brother, and his life was taken from our family and the many souls he impacted. He was a victim of a shooting in Berkeley on Oct 8, 2022.
My brother was a significant figure in our Samoan culture in the Bay Area and a focal point in our family. He was the primary breadwinner for our parents. This loss is going to deeply affect our family for years.
He was pursuing a Master of Divinity at Pacific School of Religion to serve God, our community, and the greater Bay Area, a bright light to many. He has overcame so many obstacles from when we moved to the United States as a teenager. This drove his passion to help all young adults and teenagers in our community to have a smoother path.
He takes pride in our large family and taking care of our parents. He was a major pillar in the community for change and knowledge of rights.
He will be deeply missed by our Samoan congregation in the Bay Area and Southern California.
Please donate anything you can to help our family lay him to rest. Thank you, and God bless.
