Lucero Alcaraz, 19
Lucero Alcaraz was from Roseburg and graduated from Roseburg High School this year.
She was one of 87 students who qualified to become UCC Scholars, according to a release from the college.
According to a post on her sister Maria’s Facebook page, it appears Lucero wanted to be a pediatric nurse.
“I’ll miss her making fun of me when I would attempt to say the Starbucks cup sizes, getting pissed when I would tackle her with kisses or photograph the heck out of her,” her sister wrote. “Sister, I miss you, I love you, and I wish I could see you walk through the front door right this second. I don’t know how I will make it through this …I don’t know if I can ever relieve this pain. Rest in piece sister…I’ll see you soon.”

Anspach’s family thanked the public for their support.

Anspach, his parents said, “was a perfect son.”
The 20-year-old was a very talented athlete with a “steady head on his shoulders,” said Brody Jansen, who knew Anspach from high school sports.
Anspach was always “a nice, respectful guy that always seems to have his friends and family’s back,” Jansen told CNN.
