The Rhoan Troy Assroupe Memorial Foundation was founded in December of 2014, in memory of twenty-six year old Rhoan Troy Assroupe, whose life was cut short as a result of a tragic motor vehicle collision in West Palm Beach, Florida. Rhoan’s family established the Rhoan Troy Assroupe Memorial Foundation to commemorate Rhoan’s life, and to assure that his memory lives on forever.
Born to the parents of Carcell Assroupe and Imogene James-Assroupe, Rhoan Troy Assroupe was born on April 30, 1988 at St. Mary’s Medical Center, in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Rhoan attended Westward Elementary School, where he was an active member of the school’s media department. Rhoan’s responsibilities consisted of broadcasting daily news coverage to faculty and students. Outside of school, Rhoan developed a passion for baseball. He was so fond of major league baseball player Chipper Jones, that Rhoan’s friends gave him the nickname “Chip”. Rhoan quickly picked up on the game of baseball, and became a prominent player for many years, both in little league and youth travel.
