The devotion that fans of Jenni Rivera have toward the late Diva de la Banda stems not just from her songs, but from the passion with which she lived all aspects of her life. That authenticity that so many times got her in trouble also inspired her, particularly when it came to her charity work and her determination to finish school. She gave herself 100 percent to all aspects of her life.
With her nonprofit, the Jenni Rivera Love Foundation, the singer helped countless people, not just battered women victims of domestic violence. In the last weeks she had gone head-to-head against her soon-to-be ex-husband Esteban Loaiza, because she wanted to auction off her engagement ring to finance cancer treatment for a young girl suffering from leukemina and his legal team refused.
