In Loving Memory of Mark and Jacob Iskander: Building a Brighter Future

Welcome to our GoFundMe campaign! We appreciate your time and consideration in joining us on this meaningful journey.

On September 29, 2020, our community was forever changed when we lost Mark and Jacob Iskander in a heartbreaking incident. These young lives were cut short while crossing in a marked crosswalk, leaving behind a family shattered by grief and a community united in sorrow. It’s been almost three years since that tragic day, and the pain still lingers in our hearts.

Mark and Jacob were more than just beloved members of our community; they were symbols of joy, compassion, and boundless potential. In their memory, we are embarking on a mission that not only honors their lives but also seeks to create a lasting impact that will bring hope and support to those who need it the most.

The pain of their loss has inspired us to take action to channel our grief into a force for good.

We have made a thoughtful decision to focus our efforts on supporting the Iskander family’s dream of establishing a Foster Family Agency, rather than raising funds for a treehouse in Three Springs Park, as initially discussed.

In partnership with The Good Shepherd Foster Family Agency, the Iskander Family will be opening a Foster Family Agency in the Thousand Oaks/Westlake area BY THE END OF 2023! Our goal is simple: to provide a haven for children in need and a lifeline of support for foster families.

Through this GoFundMe campaign, we invite you to be part of this transformative journey. Your contribution, no matter the amount, will directly contribute to the establishment of the Foster Family Agency. EVERY DOLLAR will help create a nurturing environment where children can thrive, where families can find the resources they need, and where the spirit of Mark and Jacob can shine through. Because of Mark and Jacob more of God’s children in Ventura County will have a home.

Join us in building a brighter future and making a tangible difference in the lives of vulnerable children. Your generosity will not only honor the memory of Mark and Jacob Iskander, but also provide hope and healing to those who need it the most. Together, we can turn tragedy into a source of strength, love, and positive change.

THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF THIS IMPORTANT MISSION!

THE ISKANDER FAMILY WILL BE MATCHING DONATIONS UP TO $20,000.

*The Mark and Jacob Iskander Foundation Fund is held with the Ventura County Community Foundation, a 501(c)3 public charity.

Please visit our website, justiceformarkandjacob.com, for information on the "Walk for Mark and Jacob" event to be held on September 29, 2023. ALL donations will go directly to the NEW Foster Family Agency to be opened to honor the lives of Mark and Jacob Iskander.
