  About Alessa


Alessa Castellon was an outgoing, friendly young woman who loved to laugh. She was studying Criminal Justice at Bunker Hill Community College and wanted to become a lawyer. She was about to start a new job. She had a 3-year-old son. On July 24, 2011, Alessa was mudered by her ex-boyfriend.

Alessa was fearless, a go-getter who would see a problem and fix it. In honor of Alessa's tenacious spirit her friends and family have pledged to help end dating violence by reaching out to young women like Alessa. Please help us celebrate Alessa's life by making a donation.
