Lejon Loggins, filmmaker, graphic artist, entrepreneur, and CEO of Camp 3.6.5. Entertainment, has now become the chief supplier of memorial programs in the City of Oakland. Following the fatal shooting of a cousin in 2006, Loggins crafted a prized funeral keepsake that boldly celebrated the life and legacy of his beloved family member. His one-of-a-kind, inspired and innovative design has since spiraled into a flourishing enterprise and a thriving partnership with The Khadafy Washington Foundation for Non-Violence. Since 2007, Loggins has designed more than 600 memorial programs, 170 of which were gunshot victims in the City of Oakland. His work with The Khadafy Washington Foundation for Non-Violence also allows him to meet with and counsel each grieving family. A native himself of San Francisco’s notorious Hunter’s Pointe, Loggins is no stranger to brazen gun violence, senseless fatalities and their residual heartbreak. However, this talented and tenacious visionary is determined to break this vicious cycle that threatens to destroy his susceptible and endangered community.
By night, Loggins photoshops angels’ wings and heavenly backgrounds to honor the dead and comfort their bereaved loved ones, but by day, he dedicates his life to rebuilding and reclaiming peace in the City of Oakland. Impassioned by the city’s rampant and all-too-familiar feelings of despair, helplessness and disillusion, Loggins aims to renew its faith, hope and viability. Tirelessly, he uses his every resource and every talent to achieve his magnanimous goals, and it all began in 2007 with his film project, Frisco Bombers: The Michael Hill Story. Based on a heartrending and true life tale, this “docudrama” recounts the tragic rise and fall of a heralded, teenage football prodigy from San Francisco, who is mercilessly mowed down by gun violence. Unable to produce his film due to lack of funding, Loggins is currently seeking a team of investors to help him bring this poignant indie masterpiece to the big screen. Once showcased, film proceeds will help Loggins to fund other unity and community outreach campaigns aimed at saving his embattled city.
In October 2010, Loggins continued to sear more images of violent crimes into our consciousness with his artistic tribute, More Than A Number: Memorial Exhibit. Featuring the dozens upon dozens of memorial programs created by Loggins, the exhibit offers visitors a sobering perspective on vi
