Help the family of Brian Fernandez

$8,521 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 99 people in 13 months
This Gofundme page has been created to help the family of Brian Fernandez. All proceeds go directly to Brian’s mother who has been unable to work as a housekeeper for the past several weeks during the ongoing search for Brian’s body. On December 23rd, girlfriend and boyfriend Olivia Hannah Gonzalez (20) and Brian Fernandez (21), left for a Big Sur getaway in a 2002 four-door tan Honda Civic. The couple was expected to return on Christmas Day Dec. 25, but after families had not heard from them, a search began. 12 days later the car was recovered from the side of a mountain in the San Luis Obispo area along with the body of Olivia and their 2 dogs. Brian’s body remains unfound and authorities suspect the body was ejected into the water. As you can imagine, Brian’s mother has been in a state of grief and mourning and has been unable to work. Brian leaves behind his beloved mother, brother and 11 month old son. Our hope for this gofundme page is to ease some of the financial burden of Brian’s family during this period of mourning. Brian’s mother, Rosa,(who is the sweetest/kindest/most loving woman and devoted mother) wants the world to know that her son “smiles all the time, cares about other people’s feelings, loves the adventure and learning new things”. Thank you so much for spreading the word. No donation is too small and every little bit helps tremendously.

Hi everyone! WOW we raised over 2k in the last 24 hours! how incredible!!! We raised the goal amount to 10k because we know how much Rosa could use every extra dollar and there are some people who wanted to donate but haven't had a chance yet. If you know anyone interested in pitching in, please share! I'm still in awe of every person that has donated so far. Rosa is blessed to have so many angles!!! Thank you so much again!

Hi everyone! We are 8 days in and just under $2,000 left from our goal! That's amazing!! Thank you SO much of each and every dollar pledged. It's so amazing and touching to see people from all over come together to help someone in their time of need. That being said, donations have slowed down over the past couple of days and we would love love love to meet our goal and keep the momentum going. If you know of anyone who would feel compelled to donate and help or if you know of anyone who would just want to share this story, we would so appreciate helping us spread the word. Thank you so much!!!

Hi everyone! We wanted to thank each and every one of you for donating! Rosa is so appreciative for how much this is helping her and her family. They went back up to north this week to continue to search on their own for Brian (the search has been called off) but they had no luck :( and are returning home now. We are not far off from the goal and would love to reach it! It's now been over a month since Rosa has been able to work so every dollar will truly help. Thank you all so much for your generosity and prayers.

My family and I were driving up to Big Sur on Feb. 12 and stopped at Ragged Point because the road was closed. We got out to look at the view. I noticed a woman sitting very near the edge of the cliff. It made me nervous that she was so close. Then I noticed the memorial. I stood and prayed for them and we left. I looked up their names as we drove away and learned of the horrible accident. I then realized that was probably Brian's mother sitting so close to the edge and I understood. I pray she felt close to him and it gave her peace. Since that day I have thought of them many times. I hope our donation will help ease the situation for you. God Bless You
