Matias Rogers, April 16, 2005 – June 16, 2021

The Liberty Cross Country team is mourning the loss of one of their own, Matias Rogers (16), following a tragic car accident July 16, and continues to hope for the recovery of two other teenagers (15 and 19) of Brentwood and Discovery Bay.


Liberty parent, Deborah Mendes, shared: ” Not only was [Matias] such an amazing athlete and student, he was a super kind and all around nice kid. My daughter says that he was the kindest and most supportive teammate.”  


A GoFundMe for the Rogers Family had raised $53,000 of a $30,000 goal at time of publication. gofund.me/19c04d67

The children of our community belong to all of us and what happens to one family, happens to all of us. May the strength of our community help the Rogers family and friends stand through this unimaginable tragedy. Stay safe, young ones. – THE DST FAMILY
