This page is for those who don’t follow Facebook but want to keep up with the latest news on events for the Rodriguez family.
On Sunday, January 14, 2018 a tragic crash took the life of Jose Rodriguez and sent the other three passengers in his car, his wife and his two daughters, to the hospital in critical condition.
His wife and two daughters (ages 9 and 12) are members of the WXMR family as well, with Talli & Ari hosting Kids Hour on Tuesdays, while Delia co-hosts our Thursday night show, Sabor y Sabiduria.
The family is a pillar in this community, raising four amazing children. Rodriguez was a respected business owner, and his wife dedicates her life to developing young leaders and strong youth through her non-profit, United At Peace.
While their strong family, friends, and community are rallying around them, there is more we can do. Please help us raise funds to support the Rodriguez family through their mourning, medical challenges, and recovery.
There is no one more deserving of our support than a family who has spent their entire lives supporting others. Even small donations make a difference.
Keep an eye on this space. Other events will be posted as we learn about them.
How you can help:
Feb 10 11am-6pm— Rodriguez Family Fundraiser at MCHS organized by Moms United and United at Peace. Food, games, raffles, silent auction and other prizes! Bring the kids and let them burn off some energy!
Tickets can be purchased on site for food and games. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the family to assist with funeral expenses as well as ongoing medical expenses for Delia, Ari, and Talli.
