You may be familiar with Johnnie Jam, a yearly musical scholarship fundraiser in honor of a lost San Marcan.
Johnnie Rosales was a son, husband, father and friend who loved music who was suddenly killed by a drunk driver while walking home in June of 2008. He was 26.
“For anybody who loses a child, of course, heartbreaking,” says Johnnie’s mother Celia Rosales. “We were very humbled by all of the support from the local community, family and friends. So we decided to give back. It started off being very small and informal, this is the first year we’ve got the website up. It’s growing a little more every year.”
Johnnie was a lover of music and played guitar with friends and a local band. He played basketball and went to Texas State for a few years. His son, Jeffrey, is now 9-years-old.
