Shrine at Santana: Spontaneous Memorial Remembers Crash Victims

Students leave flowers, posters, prayers, candles and even a pair of iPod headphones.

A memorial for a student and his friend  Wednesday night sprang up Thursday in front of the Santana High School campus and has grown since.

Santee resident Anthony Foreman, 18, and student Jaylie James Campbell, 16, are remembered through flowers, posters, prayers, candles and even a pair of iPod headphones laid to make a memorial shrine around the main sign at the front of the campus. The same spot as the annual memorial for victims of the March 2001 Santana shootings.

Besides the two teens killed, three others were hospitalized and one was jailed following the rollover crash on state Route 52.

The two victims were identified midday Wednesday and the memorial went up soon after. Both were rear-seat passengers ejected from the crashed vehicle, the Medical Examiner's Office reported.

Five Santee teenagers were in a Volkswagen Passat and three people were in a Volvo S40, whose 18-year-old driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana.

They had been traveling eastbound on Route 52 near Convoy Street, headed home from a beach party at La Jolla Shores about 11:45 p.m. Wednesday, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Art Athans.

Renee, Unfortunately I have a commitment tonight that I cannot get out of. Is there somewhere those that did not attend the Fundraiser can still donate? Is there a trust at a bank? How about the other young man, is his family O.K. financially, for proper burial? Maybe Steven could post that on Patch too.

Kathy,,, The students that were putting this on said it was a fundraiser,, I went and it was more of a vigil but they were selling T shirts and taking donations for Charlotte and Jayli. I did not see anything for Anthony and have not been able to find anything out as far as if they are doing something for him. It would be nice to know so I could help out his family as well. This is what I have found so far for more donations for the Campbell family. The organizers for Jayli Campbell's funeral on Wednesday at 11AM at SONRISE CHURCH need FOOD DONATIONS. Please call Catherine James 619-952-8549 if you can assist in funding or donating food for the service. Please help if you can
