Hello I am asking on behalf of the Escajeda family, to help with any donations for funeral & expenses. As many know this was a shock & tragic story to all of his family & friends.. Joseph was on his way home from Sacramento when a drunk driver went on the wrong side of the freeway striking Joseph’s vehicle. Joseph was such a funny, caring, & loving guy always looking out for others and made people laugh all the time… He was a C/O at San Quentin state prison.. We appreciate for all of your help. Thank you..
