Jeffrey Cortinez Memorial Fundraiser
Organized by: Jessica Cortinez
Jeffrey Cortinez was a normal guy when he was attacked on February 1st 2008. His attack was due to a troubled and mislead classmate who followed Jeff and some of his friends to Garfield Park in South Pasadena, where Jeff was there a resident. The attacker then came up from behind Jeff and hit him with blunt force to the right side. Once Jeff was rushed to Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, he was only given 72 hours to live. Miraculously he survived 6 years which he fought every step of the way. He endured several episodes of pneumonia and several head surgerys. Sadly on March 23,2014 he passed away. He couldn't fight anymore. His body gave up to what his mind kept fighting. We as his family, are struggling to pay his funeral expenses. We want him to have the best because he deserves that and more. Please help us to raise this money and give him an honorable tribute. Thank u.
