Diesel Jam Aims to Honor Crash Victim’s Memory

SCRANTON, Pa. -- Big rigs were out in force at Johnson College in Scranton for the first ever Diesel Jam.

Sunday's event was held in memory of Andrew Mazza who was killed in a crash in Susquehanna County in 2016.

Mazza's family and friends organized the event because Mazza wanted to work on diesel trucks for a living. Now, there's a scholarship in his name for students who want to do the same thing.

"I've got no doubt that he has got a very big grin on his face no matter where he may be," said Phillip Mazza, Andrew's father.

In addition to the truck show, there were also vendors, food, live entertainment, and a mobile dynamometer, or "dyno."

All the money raised goes to that scholarship in Mazza's name.
