Yonnatan's Funeral Fund

Yonnatan came to the US as a child after fleeing violence in El Salvador.  He was a recent high school graduate who dreamed of attending college and playing soccer. He was an intelligent and kind young man, and a beloved son, older brother, and friend. Yonnatan was the type to give the shirt off his back to someone in need and who saw good in everyone.  

Yonnatan's body was found on Friday, August 4 near Fresno, CA, with severe injuries consistent with a homicide. His family is devastated by their sudden loss and by the nature of his death, especially after all they went through to seek safety in the US.  They currently don't have the resources to bury Yonnatan close to home, where his mother and brothers can visit him. 100% of funds raised will go directly to his mother help to cover the cost of his burial and memorial service.


Yonnatan llegó a los Estados Unidos cuando era niño después de huir de la violencia en El Salvador. Él se graduo de la secundaria recientamente y sonaba de asistir a la universidad y de jugar al fútbol. Era un joven inteligente y amable, y un hijo, hermano mayor y  amigo bien amado. Yonnatan era el tipo de dar la camisa de su espalda a alguien en necesidad y que veía lo bueno en todo el mundo.

El cuerpo de Yonnatan fue encontrado el viernes, 4 de agosto cerca de Fresno, CA, con lesiones graves consistentes con un homicidio. Su familia está devastada, especialmente después de todo lo que atravesaron para buscar seguridad en los Estados Unidos. Actualmente no tienen los recursos para enterrar a Yonnatan cerca de casa, donde su madre y hermanos pueden visitarlo. 100% de los fondos recaudados irán directamente a su madre para ayudar a cubrir el costo de su entierro y servicio conmemorativo.
