In Honor of Jennifer Gonzales

Dr. Jennifer Gonzales, a VA Clinical Psychologist, worked at SJSU through the VA until the summer of 2016 when she left to start her new job at the Yountville Veterans Home.  She worked on campus through the VA grant, called VITAL (Veterans Integration to Academic Leadership), and was here to support and guide our student veterans through their transitions on campus. She, along with Damian Bramlett, were an integral partnership in the launching of our Veterans Resource Center and provided direct VA services in order to truly be a "one-stop" shop for our transitioning men and women. Jennifer provided a great deal of education to our campus and outreach to our neighboring Community Colleges as well. Although her life was tragically cut short in the Yountville shooting in March 2018, she is respected and remembered by so many for her gracious spirit and contributions she made to the many lives she touched and helped.
