The Story

Jacob Rivera, 18-year-old son of Ralph and Brenda Rivera, went to be with his Savior on November 18, 2017. In his short life, Jacob was able to develop a personal relationship with Jesus and walk in His purpose. There’s no doubt that Jacob’s light was special. And loving Jesus came from the heart. His life showed us what God can do even in a short time, when one of His children are given the opportunity to know, learn and grow for His glory.  His parents strongly feel that the time he spent at Calvary Christian School, growing from a boy to a young man, greatly enriched his life. Calvary Christian School has established The CCS Memorial Fund. These funds in memory of Jacob, at the request of the Rivera family, are to open the door for God to change the life of another child for His eternal purpose.  

Our goal is to raise $60,000 for a student (or students) to receive the life-changing education that Jacob received at Calvary Christian School .

Today is Jacob's Birthday.  There's no doubt that today was a difficult day.  He is missed - missed dearly by his family and friends.  

One special moment today was a letter received by very close friends of Jacob (J.R.).  I'd love to include the whole letter because it was so heartfelt and a sweet reminder of the promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ. 

One part of the letter I will include speaks to the very reason we created this fund in memory of Jacob. 

Reminiscing about our school days with each other, we have honestly come to realize just how thankful we were able to attend Calvary Christian School with J.R. and many others that we've gotten so close to. We would be honored to give towards the tuition fund in his name so that someone else can experience the close-knit family that is C.C.S. 

This blessed our hearts so much.

Happy Birthday dear Jacob. Happy Birthday to you!
