Stephan Jourdan, In Memoriam, 1966-2017

Stephan was my loving husband, cheerleader and co-founder of this organization. Always a hard worker, whether filming events, helping out with sound/lighting, fundraising, even making a diddley bow for a musician to play at a performance, he worked tirelessly to help the organization make an impact.  Art Works for Us truly began as a mom and pop that developed power and influence to serve our community.  Stephan your love for this organization is felt and personally, you had my back, you were my rock and are still supporting me, in spirit.

  You are missed and cherished.  Ana Miranda, President and loving wife.
