Support Marvin Jones' Family
Organized by: Arsineh Aghakhani
On May 30, 2016, Marvin Jones, a loving father of five, was struck by a drunk driver while waiting at the bus stop on his way to work. After weeks in the ICU, Marvin eventually succumbed to the injuries he sustained as a result of this traumatic incident and passed away.
Despite the admissions of the drunk driver responsible for Marvin's death, the District Attorney's Office initially rejected the case and failed to prosecute the drunk driver for this horrific crime. However, after the family and their attorney, Arsineh Aghakhani of Los Angeles City Law, brought Marvin's death to the attention of the media and the District Attorney's Office, the drunk driver was finally arrested and is now awaiting trial. The family is relieved that the man who took their loving father, brother, and son will finally be prosecuted for this crime and will be brought to justice.
Los Angeles City Law, the firm representing Marvin's family as part of its pro bono efforts in the community, is collecting contributions via this GoFundMe page to help provide financial support for the children and family of Marvin Jones. Words cannot express the devastation Marvin's family feels after this huge loss. Marvin has two adult children, one of whom will be starting college in Santa Barbara this fall, and three minor children. Prior to his passing, Marvin was the sole provider for his family. After his loss, Marvin's family is now struggling to make ends meet and obtain basic necessities. The family cannot afford to pay for Marvin's funeral service and burial costs. Thus, we ask that those who are able to please contribute to this significant cause in order to help support Marvin's family during their time of mourning.
All funds contributed are much appreciated and will directly go to Marvin's family.
Thank you in advance to the community for its support and contribution.
