Engineering Scholarship - James Evan Gross
A while ago, a memorial was held at St Francis for a young man killed on a motorcycle. A scholarship in his name is now announced. May God continue to strengthen his young wife and his family.  Paula+
"James Evan Gross was an incredibly vibrant person always up for adventure. He lived his best life and inspired others to do the same. He was doing what he loved to do up until the time of his death when he died tragically on a motorcycle June 7, 2018. He worked as a Materials Manager at SpaceX, traveled the world and had just bought his first home in Hermosa Beach. An Engineering Scholarship Fund has been established through Wichita State University." Click here for the link .
