JEFFREY ZOUB was a huge supporter of Comedy for Charitiy, which was the brainchild of his wife, local comedian Suzie Sexton. JEFFREY died on May 14, 2015 after a long fight with cancer.Please make a donation in memoriam if you want to help Jeff's goal come true. He, like Suzie, wanted to make a difference in the arena of preventing violence. She lost her sister in an unsolved shooting/homicide in 1980. The charity is dedicated to preventing others from suffering the pain and agony of being victims of violence. "Violence is like a disease that needs to be cured. I'm doing what I can to end it," says Sexton.
Unfortunately, many of us know the impact of violence. The El Presidio Memorial will offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serentity to our community. Similarly, those who attend this benefit will help raise awareness, support Comedy for Charity's mission of making the world a less violent place, and have a guarenteed fun time.
