John Ciccolella Memorial Fund

It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dear friend, husband, brother, and son, John Ciccolella.

A lynchpin of San Diego’s music community for over twenty years, John meant so much to so many. He provided opportunities to performers, shared his extensive knowledge through his lessons, all the while stupifying onlookers with his mind-boggling demonstrations of chess prowess.

John's loving wife Dawn is in all of our thoughts; together they ran a small floral arrangement business. Your assistance will help Dawn with the medical costs, memorial expenses, and life transition she’s now left facing alone.

We ask everyone whose life was touched by John to support our fundraising efforts. On behalf of Dawn, thank you so much for your love and support.
