Our Mission

To provide the children of Law Enforcement Officers with scholarships for higher educational attainment.

About the foundation

The Espericueta family started the Speedy Memorial Foundation to honor the memory of their loved one: Joey (‘Speedy’ as he was affectionately known in the community), a police officer at the City of Mission PD who lost his life in the line of duty on June 20, 2019.
The Foundation was built upon the mantra: Honor, Integrity, Service; which will continue Speedy’s legacy of education and love of his community.
