2nd Memorial symposium for Jamie DeRita Rodriguez

Hi, I am Jamie’s sister Michelle and we are fundraising for the future of Jamie’s children.

Let me give a little recap on Jamie’s kids over the last year since losing the light of their lives.

Haley is currently in boot camp for the Army at Fort Leonardwood Missouri. She will leave boot camp and going directly to college at University of Alabama on a FULL RIDE!!!!! She sure is one amazing child who we are so VERY proud of.

Madison and Ty are doing very well and have adjusted quite well. They both will be entering into the 8th grade in the fall.

The “baby” Philip just graduated from elementary school and will be entering into 6th grade in the fall.

Jamies husband Rob is doing well and is doing a fantastic job as a single father. 

Jamie also leaves behind 5 AMAZING step-children who are all doing very well. The 5 of them have really stepped up for their younger siblings and their father in a way that is indescribable.

My sister would be so extremely proud of all of their accomplishments and how they are all just well rounded kids. All of Jamie’s children continue to make us so very proud of them!!!

We look forward to the 2nd annual symposium and appreciate all the love and support we have gotten from everyone over the last year. Jamie sure was loved!!!
