Tribute, benefit concert held in honor of Jennifer Krajnak

Fundraiser to help Krajnak's family wth expenses

LEMON GROVE, Calif. - A tribute and benefit concert was held on Sunday to honor the life of Jennifer Krajnak.

Krajnak was found Jan. 3 along a Lemon Grove street bleeding from a gunshot wound to her head. She was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Casey Tschida, 32, was arrested in Oregon last week in connection with Krajnak's death.

On Sunday, dozens gathered at Dirk's NightClub on Broadway Avenue in Lemon Grove to celebrate Krajnak's life and raise money for funeral expenses.

"It's actually a very positive vibe right now," said friend Ashley Young. "We're trying to celebrate her life and think of her in a positive way…trying not to do too much crying today."

A memorial service will be held for Krajnak on Friday.
