Mission Statement

The mission of the JSCK Foundation is to promote the safety and well-being of children through education in preventing child abduction and exploitation, and to provide support for families who've lost a loved one at the hands of another.

Description

On March 27, 1993 two best friends, 9 year old Jonathan and 13 years old Charlie, left home for a bike ride on a beautiful March morning and never returned. Their ride was cut short when a sexual predator murdered them both. For 8 years their murder was left unsolved.

In 2001, the murderer was finally found through a DNA database for previous crimes committed. On April 2004, a jury voted unanimously for the death penalty and on September 1, 2004, a California judge sentenced the murderer to death row. He is currently on death row at San Quentin State Prison. We were finally able to put our boys to rest.

The specific purpose of this organization is to promote the safety and well-being of children. Last year, we gave 19 safety program presentations to over 1650 children across San Diego County. Our Safety Program, "Fly Away", is a 20-minute theatrical performance for elementary students that brings safety concepts to life and gives kids the skills they need to stay safe.
