Craig Pacheco-  This amazing and selfless star is full of LIFE!

Craig has been the proud husband of Jill for the last 21 years and is the proud father of 3 handsome boys Case, 19, Cole, 16, and Cooper, 11. He loves all the outdoor guy stuff there is including camping, fishing, coaching his boys’ baseball teams, and even mowing lawns! Let’s not forget that he is one of the biggest Dodger fans EVER!!! In October of 2014, Craig was diagnosed with testicular cancer, underwent surgery, but was diagnosed a second time in 2015 as well. He and his family fought and won the battle after intense chemo treatments at Stanford Cancer Center and received a cancer-free diagnosis in November of 2015! The community fought for him right by his side and nobody will ever forget the meaning of #SHOVEIT!!!
