Chad Elliott Jenson Memorial Scholarship
Sargent Chad Elliott Jenson was suddenly taken from us on 7/10/2017. He was one of 16 servicemen killed in a C-130 plane crash. He was a member of 2nd Marine Raider Battalion, MARSOC (United States Marine Corps Forces, Special Operations Command). Recently married, Chad leaves behind his wife Jessica, and her son Jackson. Chad's parents and family members created this scholarship in an effort to generate something positive from this terrible tragedy. As a member of the Mira Costa High School 2008 & 2009 Championship football team, Chad learned teamwork that carried into the Marines. We felt helping another Mustang with similar virtues that Chad symbolized on the journey to higher education would be fitting to his honor.
The Chad Elliott Jenson Memorial Scholarship will be awarded each year to a Mira Costa High School scholar athlete that exemplifies qualities that made Chad the great man that he was. Commitment, leadership, community service and Esprit de Corps are but a few of his qualities, and are those that will be considered for the scholarship.
Your donation will help to start the fund required for the Chad Elliott Jenson Memorial Scholarship.
