On March 1, 2012, two best friends Roman and JaQuevin were tragically murdered just six months after losing another best friend Trevin to SGV (senseless gun violence). This would change the lives of their families and friends forever. The mothers of these boys decided to turn their tragedy into triumph instead of feeling angry and depressed, they re-directed their anger into doing something positive for the community.

After several meetings, planning's and fundraisers, the founders agreed to pursue the plans of starting an organization to help other families impacted by violence. This organization would be a help to other families that experience the same pain that they had undergone and it would prove to be a therapy for them as well. On June 16, 2012 the decision was made between the three mothers that their son's death would not be in vain. God had won the victory and his work would be done. On June 16, 2012 the RJT Foundation, Inc. was officially incorporated.

Since its incorporation, RJT Foundation, Inc. has assisted over 100 families directly impacted by gun violence, provided care packages to over 1000 youth and families within the community and distributed educational books and pamphlets to over 3000 students and is most recently known for implementing three educational award scholarships specifically tailored for youth impacted by violence.
