Jacob Zamora, born May 1, 1984, grew up in the Santa Clarita Valley, attending Sulphur Springs Elementary, La Mesa Jr. High and Canyon High Schools. He achieved the rank of Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America. After graduation, he aspired to become a California Highway Patrol Officer and became a member of the CHP Explorer Program, Post 540 in the Santa Clarita Valley.
On November 22, 2003, Jacob was involved in an accident while working at the gun club. The utility vehicle he was driving went off the road and he died from his injuries.
The Jacob Anthony Zamora Memorial Shoot has become an annual event and its success has helped support the CHP Explorer program and aid for college funds for high school scholarships. In 2012 members of Jacob’s family and friends worked to become a non-profit corporation. The Jacob Zamora Memorial Foundation was established. The Foundation has not only continued to support CHP Explorer post 540, it is also committed to supporting a newly formed CHP Explorer post, 545. They have an outreach fund for families in the Santa Clarita Valley suffering tragedies, and it has in the past four years provided 25 scholarships totaling $25,000 to Santa Clarita Valley high school seniors.
