Rosy's Family Fund

This is Rosy.  Her full name is Rosa Guadalupe Uicab Jimenez.  Rosy worked for me the last 4 years in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.  I first me her when she worked at my friend Coty's cooking school CoCo's Cocina where Rosy assisted in the kitchen, cleaning, and prepping food for our cooking classes.  We all loved Rosy.  She was always smiling with a great attitude and she was kind and gentle.  She was good at her job and she had a level of sophistication and culture and she appreciated life and its flavors.  My doctor friend Renata and I immediately realized what a treasure Rosy was and we both ended up hiring her after she left Coco's.  Rosy was more than a housekeeper.  She was part of the family.  She loved animals and children, she was honest and reliable.  She was responsible and she was wonderful with plants and she took great care in her work.  She loved to cook and try new foods and was curious about spices and recipes.  If I was entertaining she was the best assistant chef ever....She was a dedicated mother of three children and she worked hard to provide for them.  If you ever stayed at my condo in Playa or went to one of our famous rooftop gallerings then you met Rosy with her award winning smile.  Even though we moved back to Dallas  two years ago Rosy still stayed on and took care of my condos. She was  conscientious and trustworthy.  Renata moved on to Holland but Renata's colleague also a doctor hired Rosy as well and when they had a new baby this past year Rosy took on the job of nanny and housekeeper in the mornings and she cared for my condos in the afternoon.  And then she went home and cared for own family.

This past Friday while Rosy was at her nanny job, she asnswered the door and was brutally attacked and beaten and choked.  Her employers found her on the floor almost dead with the baby abandoned and crying. The police are investigating and it appears to be someone that knew her as nothing else was out of place.  She was choked so violently that when she arrived to the hospital she was pronounced brain dead. She is currently on life support with a very minimal chance of surviving.   Jake and I are in shock and heartbroken.  We cannot even imagine how someone could hurt this teeny tiny beautiful sweet soul.  

We need to raise money for her family. This is a culture that lives hand to mouth.  There is no savings account or excess.  While her medical care is covered in Mexico, Rosy worked to feed, cloth and house her family.  They lived a very simple and modest life.  They need money for food and housing.   I promise you that every dime you donate will go to support Rosy's three children with the exception of the 7.9% fees that this gofund site charges.  

Please consider donating...something... even the smallest donation will help her family.
