Support is surging for the family of a 26-year-old aspiring attorney from New Jersey who was found dead in Pennsylvania last week.

Funeral services for Kevin Rosero will be at the Judkins Colonial Home in Plainfield from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 26.

Rosero's body was found in a wooded area of Richland Township, Pennsylvania last week. Brothers Anthony Gamble, 19, and Joshua Gamble, 17, of Franklin Township (Somerset County) have been charged in Rosero's death.

As of Wednesday, more than $12,400 had been raised on a GoFundMe page for Rosero's family.

A Plainfield High School and Rutgers University graduate, Rosero came to the U.S. with his parents from Ecuador and was set to begin working toward his masters degree in September.

"Kevin didn’t go to school to selfishly improve only his own life, he was trying to figure out a way to change the world," said Rosero's former PHS teacher, Joel Plummer. 

"He was politically active and in our last discussion he was considering going to law school so he could practice immigration law. And now Kevin has been found brutally murdered. 

"His killers not only killed Kevin, but also all of his dreams of making other people’s lives more prosperous, more just, and more secure. His killers committed a crime against all of us because we all have been robbed of Kevin’s brilliance and compassion."
