Christina Mauser Was Given a Heartfelt Private Funeral
Christina Mauser, who was killed in the tragic helicopter crash that took the life of nine people. Including NBA star, Kobe Bryant, was honored on Sunday in a private ceremony.
The funeral comes three weeks after the crash and was held in the gymnasium of Edison High School, Mauser’s Alma mater.

Mauser was later recruited by Bryant to work for his Mamba Academy in Newbury Park. She was on her way to the Academy, along with Bryant and Gianna, when the helicopter they riding in crashed.
She is survived by three children, an 11-year old daughter, a 9-year old son, and a 4-year daughter. All of whom she shares with husband, Matt.
In an interview with ABC News, Matt opened up about the loss of his wife, saying: “I loved her. It’s as simple as that. I loved my wife with everything I had.”
A GoFundMe page has been started for the Mauser family.
