Unexpected Passing of Aaron Cua

Dear Friends,

On the morning of March 18th, 2020, Aaron Cua passed suddenly and unexpectedly from necrotizing fasciitis, a rare and aggressive bacterial infection. Aaron was a dedicated and loving father of three, husband, son, brother, teacher, teammate, and friend. 

Aaron was married to Julie, his best friend, and had three beautiful young sons, Jude (6), and twins, Jaxon and Josiah (7). Aaron worked hard to build up a tutoring business and worked long hours because he loves to teach and wanted his family to have the best.

Along with his tutoring center, Aaron also spent the last two school years teaching math at Village Christian School. While there, he would participate in faculty-student basketball games (where he subsequently got injured), freshman retreats, and pep rallies. He treasured the opportunity to share his testimony and make a spiritual impact on the lives of his students. Village Christian School Mourns Death of Math Teacher Aaron Cua.


Aaron was 41 when his life was taken from his family. He enjoyed cheering for his kids in judo, spending quality time with Julie, and in his limited spare time, playing and watching basketball. If you asked his sons what his favorite thing was, they would say cuddling and playing games.

Aaron was also passionate about Jesus. His eyes would light up at any opportunity to discuss the Gospel (more specifically, apologetics), and his mission in life was to help people move forward in their spiritual journey with God. 


Death not only brings emotional pain, stress, and agony, it also brings financial burdens. Since Aaron was the sole provider in the household, we are trying to raise money for Julie and her children to help with funeral costs, daily expenses, and the children’s college fund.


It is in these times of loss and sadness when you see people come together to help one another make it through, to support the people we care for. We understand everyone is going through their own difficulties with the current epidemic and are thankful for any support you may be able to provide.
