Almaden Valley Youth Soccer President Rallys League for Jonathan

A Message from Our President
In Memory of Jonathan Manzo Chavez from Santa Clara Sporting Soccer League

On Saturday the Almaden Mercury U10 Green team played the Santa Clara Sporting team in a Nor-Cal State Cup tournament game. A young player from SCYSL, Jonathan Manzo Chavez was on the way home from the tournament in Manteca, and lost his life in a tragic traffic accident with his mom and siblings. Although Jonathan’s father had to leave the tournament early to attend work he still made the drive to watch as much of his son’s games as he could, never imagining this would be the last time he’d see Jonathan play. As we finish this season, embrace your children and their enthusiasm for the game. As parents we should enjoy every minute of watching our children play. I know there are areas our league can improve and we will. Our thoughts are with Jonathan’s family, and let’s everyone take things in perspective as we move forward.
John Jussen
President AVYSL

The father is the sole provider and does not have health insurance. The Santa Clara Sporting league has set up a donation trust to help the Manzo Chavez family in their moment of need.
