Jovita came to La Porte in 1966 and graduated from La Porte High School in 1976. She believed in addressing the needs of children and making sure they received a great education. Jovita worked for over 20 years in La Porte ISD helping students with special needs. She was strong in her faith and served for more than 25 years as the Children’s Church Director. Giving back to her community and those in need came naturally to her as she opened her home to after-school care.

Jovita will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
