Music Foundation Created In Memory of Slain Jazz FanOctober 14, 2011 / No Comments
NEWPORT, Ore. – A special music foundation has been created for underprivileged children, in the memory of slain Oregon teen Cody Myers.
Myers was involved with several bands and loved music – especially jazz. He was murdered after a trip to the Newport Jazz Festival.
Before his death, Myers, 19, told his family that he had a passion to help lower income and underprivileged children who can’t afford musical instruments, music supplies or lessons.
