Our "JROCC FOUNDATION" (Jordan's Reclaiming Our Children in Crisis) is a non-profit organization founded by a single mother, Kimberly Angel, who lost her son, Jordan Angel (pictured right), to gun violence in 2019 at the young age of fifteen years old. This organization is designed to help our at risk youth find new purpose and meaning in their community and in their lives by working together in the fight against one of the biggest problems in our society today.... GUN VIOLENCE. Our non-profit organization focuses on the success of our young adults, in hopes that we may be able to help them prepare for a brighter future, thus forming the Jordan Angel Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Jordan had big dreams of going to college and playing in the NBA or the NFL. He started preparing for that dream at the age of 4 when he played little league football for the NW Panthers. But his life was cut short due to a senseless act of gun violence on July 12, 2019. We would like to try and prevent this type of tragedy from happening to other kids by helping to promote the option of a college education and encouraging our young people to live up to one's full potential.
We are committed to helping in the fight against gun violence by offering our love and support, and reaching out to our at risk youth in our communities. We hope to be a positive influence in the lives of many children so that they may grow into productive and well-balanced adults. The scholarship is offered to seniors at Klein High School, where Jordan was a student, and who are living in single-parent households. The candidates must desire to go on to college after they've graduated high school. We hope to be able to expand our scholarship in the future so that we may be able to award more students each year.
