promoting education through rabies awareness, research and funding scholarships

The Zach Jones Memorial Fund is founded to remember,
celebrate, and give thanks for the extraordinary life of
Zachary Ross Jones, who lived more fully, loved more
unselfishly, and blessed more lives than should have been
possible in his sixteen short years. Zach planned his life with
remarkable vision. In life, Zach earned the respect and
admiration of his family, friends, teachers, coaches, and casual acquaintances. Through this fund, may his eternal flame live on to help others with similar vision and goals to become tomorrow's heroes.

The Zach Jones Memorial Fund is proud to announce the 2020 scholarship recipients. Mikinlee Hattoy and Ryan Huberty were the recipients of a $5,000 award and DJ Murchison was the recipient of the $1,500 Fighting Heart Award. All recipients are graduates of Atascocita High School.
