27 Sep JOSE FERNANDEZ’S CHARITABLE LEGACY: THE JDF16 FOUNDATION
The Greater Miami community was saddened by the tragic loss of José Fernández, beloved Miami Marlins star pitcher, in a boating accident on September 25. José was an inspiration both on and off the field, who brought much joy to the game and those who knew him. The Foundation family’s thoughts and prayers continue to be with his loved ones during this trying time.
His family established the JDF16 Foundation with us to reflect the values that José embodied: love of family and a passion for helping youth. We’re privileged to work with them to honor the legacy of this inspiring Miamian who will always be remembered for his talent and passion for his community.
