Trust Fund for Roddy and Teddy

Rodney "Rod” Jarahian II passed away on August 12th, 2017 at the age of 38.  There is no denying Rod's pride and joy came from raising his two sons, Rodney Jarahian III & Edward Jarahian II.  In a time when life feels unfair and in turmoil, we know his priority would be to make sure his children have what they need to thrive and be successful.  

This gofundme, managed by Rods siblings, Jessica Jackson and Ted Jarahian, for their nephews, is an opportunity for those who knew Rod and benfited from his humor and larger than life presence, to contribute to his children and their future.  

All donations will be put directly into a trust account, managed by Uncle Ted, for his sons to access for school/college, life purchases, i.e home or car, or emergency needs.  The goal is to provide a safety net for Roddy and Teddy in the absence of their father. 

We cannot thank you enough for your financial and emotional support at this difficult time.  We know Rod would be incredibly grateful for your generousity.
