Jonathan Zuniga Memorial Fund

On September 6, 2017 Jonathan Zuniga - a 24 year old Navy corpsman attached to a Marine company - went hiking with his younger brother Nathaniel in the San Jacinto Mountains above Idyllwild, CA. While on the trail returning back to their parked vehicle, a rock slide came down on Jonathan and Nathaniel. Jonathan was killed, and Nathaniel was seriously injured. Nathaniel was sent to a nearby hospital where he later spent time in ICU.

Jonathan had a wife Leah and a  two year old son named Trevor. Trevor has a congenital condition called 13q deletion chromosome disorder in which a portion of chromosone 13 is missing. The condition causes developmental disorders that require surgeries periodical. Surgeries.

The money raised by this GoFundMe campaign will be used to set up a trust for Trevor and his soon to be born sister. Jonathan's parents or siblings were never intended to  benefit by the money raised.
