Sergio was an inspiration to all those who knew him. His passion for music was only surpassed by his compassion for others. His life was cut short, but his memory will always live in our hearts.

Sergio was an active member of the Jasmine Alternative Music School (JAMS). Just days before the tragedy, he and his friends were playing music for the public and taking donations to help support JAMS.

The Sergio Romero Scholarship Fund was established in 2011 to gift free instruments and music lessons to teens and pre-teens in Santa Barbara County.

Sergio was a talented, outstanding, young man who gave back to the community, and will continue to give through his scholarship fund.

Your generosity enables us to honor Sergio by giving the gift of music freely to those who are in need.
