Welcome to the San Antonio Chapter of the Star Legacy Foundation!
Jenna and Derek Brown live in San Antonio, Texas, where Derek is an Emergency Medicine Physician and Captain in the United States Army and Jenna is a Special Education teacher for students with moderate to severe disabilities. They look forward to bringing a chapter of Star Legacy to the San Antonio area and to helping other loss families. They know what it is like to have no answers when you lose a child and they hope they can help others find comfort and healing on their grief journey. They are the very proud parents of Lucas, who was born still in April 2018, just two days before his due date.
