A Tribute to Nathan Pena

Our dear friends, Jennifer, Alex, and Lauren lost their beloved son and brother, Nathan,  to a tragic car accident on Monday, September 30. Nathan was driving to Colorado to visit a friend who is there attending college. In a split second he was hit by a driver who was in a high speed chase with police, going the wrong way on the freeway. Nathan did what he could to get his car out of the way, but was hit and killed on impact. Nathan was an incredibly charismatic and sweet nineteen year old boy, who loved his car and his kitten.  He was kind, funny and lit up a room. 

 Along with their traumatic loss comes financial hardship, as Jenn and Alex prepare to make the final arrangements for their Nathan. As a nineteen year old just beginning his life, Nathan did not have life insurance. 

Please help me in taking away the added stress that this financial hardship will place on Jenn and Alex while they say goodbye to their boy.
