Luis Tovar

Luis A. Tovar, 50, is an Orange County local and the business owner of Unified Homes, a real estate and manufactured home brokerage, located on the second floor of the complex where the shooting occurred.

Tovar married Karla Reynoso-Tovar in 2012 and later had another ceremony in 2019.

Both Tovar and Reynoso attended Fullerton College, Tovar earning an associate degree in construction technology. He continued his education at Cal State Fullerton where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in business administration.

Jenevieve Raygoza

Jenevieve Raygoza, 28, was a daughter of Tovar and a Fullerton College alumna where she studied business administration.

Raygoza worked for her father’s company, Unified Group Investments and Insurance, Inc., as a transaction manager for ten years.

She is survived by her husband, Armando Raygoza, Jr., and leaves behind her two sons, Andres, 4, and Nathaniel, 8.

“She had a smile that could light up any room and a caring nature of putting others’ needs before hers,” Raygoza, Jr. said in a GoFundMe campaign.

Alberto Raygoza, Genevieve’s brother-in-law, organized a GoFundMe to raise money in support of therapy and grief care for Andres and Nathaniel, as well as educational funding.

“To lose your mother at the ages of 4 and 8 is without description and to lose her in this senseless way will never be a closed story for these wonderful little boys who didn’t have nearly enough time with her,” Raygoza said in a GoFundMe campaign.
