Justice fo Josiah

$28,988 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 571 people in 23 months



***UPDATE***
We are changing the direction of our campain to now help bring Justice for Josiah.   We are asking for donations  that will be used towards a reward for any  information for  the arrest and conviction of the suspect who committed the senseless murder of David Josiah Lawson.   

We would like to especially thank Brother's United, M.E.C.H.A,  AACAE, and other faculty and administration staff, and the student body that come forth with support and donated their time and resources for this cause.     

We will stand firm in our fight until justice prevails for Josiah.  We are thankful for the Humboldt community for giving this case a voice that has been so desperately needed.  The support and love from the community has given our family a renewed strength  and we are extremely grateful.  Together we can make a difference.

Please direct any eye witness or leading information to Chief Tom Chapman to  707-822-2428.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------As you may have heard, on April 15, 2017 my son David "DJ" Lawson's life was taken before his time in a senseless act of violence. DJ was the best son a mother can ask for.
Friends and Family talk about his smile that could brighten your day, how considerate he was, how he treasured me "mom", his younger brother and sister.
He was the kindest person I ever met. He did what was right because it was right. He was protective of those he loved, and compassionate of those he did not.
I have never heard him say one bad word about another human being. If you ever met a kinder person, I challenge you to prove it.
He was a sophomore at Humboldt State University studying criminal justice where he would have used his degree to help the voiceless in the community.
The world has lost a bright and shining star. Please continue to pray for me and my family as we go through this unbearable loss.
DJ  was recently appointed President of BU(Brothers United) at Humboldt University, and was an excellent upstanding student.  
The funds collected for DJ will go towards bringing DJ home and funeral services and expenses.

Hello everyone. Our family has been overwhelmed by the love and continued blessings we are receiving. We are truly thankful for every single person who is helping us through this difficult time.

We are on our way right now to bring DJ home, so please keep us in your prayers as we travel to Humboldt. We are thankful for the Humboldt community for their graciousness, and continued support your love has been profoundly felt.

Services have been planned for Mon May 1st @ CrossWord Christian Church in Moreno Valley.
