Tragic Loss of Whitman Grad

Memorial_Candle.jpg

It is with a heavy heart that we report the passing of Whitman graduate Jason Mocte-Zuma who has been tragically killed in an auto accident. Jason, who was a wonderful student and dedicated South Huntington athlete, brought tremendous accomplishment and joy to our schools, earning the admiration of students and staff alike.

While the loss of any young life is tragic, the passing of one of our own hits particularly close to home and puts the importance and fragility of life in true perspective.

I know that we all join in thought and prayer for Jason’s Family.

There will be a service on Monday, January 21 @ Jacobsen Funeral Home from 5-9pm

Let’s all make sure to tell our families and friends how much we love them today.
