Velasquez Legacy Lives On
Angel 9/30/1994 – 8/1/2013 ~~~~ Jackie 11/30/1991 – 10/3/2014
Project 150 Youth Council in partnership with City of North Las Vegas, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), National Latino Police Officers Association (NLPOA), Las Vegas Valley Soccer League (LVVSL), Office Of Ombudsman For Consumer Affairs, Riderz4Life, Rockabilly Mafia Dolls LV, and the Jimenez/Velasquez Family will be honoring Angel and Jackie Velasquez in the 2nd Annual Velasquez Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser, August 1, 2 and 16, 2015.
Angel was a natural leader who lived with a purpose to serve. Angel was a member of the Project 150 Youth Leadership Council; a graduate of Las Vegas High School- Class of 2012; Played with Rush Soccer Club; Criminal Justice student at College of Southern Nevada; and most proudly served as LVMPD Explorer Captain – a career field Angel was passionate about. Angel’s life was taken in a tragic accident caused by an intoxicated driver.
Sadly, while Angel’s sister Jackie was helping plan Angel’s Memorial event last year, she was stricken with Cancer and lost her battle after two painful months. Jackie was an energetic young lady who graduated from Valley High School and joined the Army at the age of 17 years old.
In honor of these amazing young leaders, taken way too young, we are reaching out to our community to help us celebrate Angel and Jackie’s Memorial by sponsoring the Velasquez Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser. All proceeds will be distributed in scholarships awarded to disadvantaged students who, otherwise, would not have the opportunity to pursue their college dreams. Your generous sponsorship and support is greatly appreciated to keep these young leaders’ legacy alive.
