KENOSHA — Students from Bradford High School put together a car wash in honor of 15-year-old Kaylie Juga, a young life cut short.
Police say Juga’s ex-boyfriend — 15-year-old Martice Fuller — entered her family’s home on May 9, and shot her and her mother. Kaylie Juga died but her mom survived.
On Saturday, May 25, the group of seniors hosted the car wash as tribute to their beloved friend.
“You wouldn’t expect it from children, as young as they are. I just think it’s a beautiful thing for them to take that time out of their Saturday,” said Maribel Fanell, Juga family friend.
All those who came to the car wash left with a “#JugaStrong” sticker.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Juga family who says they’d like to create a memorial for Kaylie at her former school.
A GoFundMe page has also been set up to support the Juga family.
Meantime, Martice Fuller on Friday, May 24, pleaded not guilty to charges associated with the fatal shooting. He’s being held on a $1 million cash bond and is due back in court on July 26.
