Jessica’s Scholarship

In Memory of Jessica Garcia

In an ongoing effort to give back to the community, El Chaparral reaches out to various entities every year. The entity we hold closest to heart is the Jessica Garcia Memorial Fund. In memory of Jessica, Carlos and Mary Garcia along with sons Carlos Jr. and Gabe Garcia created this endowment fund to honor Jessica via a scholarship fund at St. Mary’s University.

Jessica was tragically killed in an auto accident in 1996. Her spirit and energy lives on however, through educational empowerment, something she felt strongly about. It is for this reason we created the endowment fund so that another part of her memory lives on forever. Yearly, El Chaparral raises money for the fund and now invites you to do so as well.

By clicking on the link below, you can donate directly to the St. Mary’s University Scholarship fund for Jessica Garcia.

Please make sure to check “SELECT OTHER” and and then type “Jessica Garcia Memorial Fund” when donating.

As always, your contribution makes a difference to those who share Jessica’s passion for education and is tax deductible.

Authentic Mexican in a fun environment. Fair prices on the food.


This place has great Tex-Mex in the hills of Helotes. It's delicious, it's beautiful it's a win win!


Just tried it for the first time an instantly became a new favorite! Great food!


We had lunch there today and it was great as always. My wife would eat there a couple times a week if I let her. Keep up the good work.


The nachos are perfect. The chip is homemade. I will be returning there soon.


A great place to take the family for lunch or supper.
