A scholarship fund for the Grossmont College School of Nursing has been set up in honor of Matt Hajosy, a 28-year-old nursing student who was killed in a February 23 car crash.
Hajosy, a La Mesa resident who graduated from the University of San Diego in 2008, returned to college after realizing that nursing was his passion. He was set to graduate from the Grossmont College nursing program in December 2014.
“Matt’s smile was infectious!” a classmate wrote on an online memorial site. “He would have been a wonderful nurse and he had a huge impact on so many. He will be missed.”
Donations to the J. Matt Hajosy Scholarship fund can be sent to the Grossmont College School of Nursing, 8800 Grossmont College Drive, El Cajon, CA 92020.
