The Sacramento Traditional Jazz community tragically lost Dillon Weatherly, a young trumpet player, on July 23rd, 2016. Dillon was 14, and is the son of Felicia and Jeff Weatherly. Felicia is a music teacher at River City High School, and the director of the youth jazz band the Syncopating Sea Monkeys. The Weatherly family has asked that those who wish to honor Dillon do so by donating to the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Foundation.
The Foundation will be working closely with the Weatherly family to use the funds donated in Dillon’s name for a scholarship that honors his memory and music. We pray that the healing power of the jazz music we all love will provide some peace and solace for the Weatherly’s and everyone touched by this loss.
Thank you for your loving support.
The donation is tax deductible. The Foundation’s tax ID: 91-1776322
