He is the grandson of Janice and Jerry Hungerford of Tucson, and Desmond Cohen of Irvine, Calif.
Gavin attends Esperero Canyon Middle School, where he is an honor student and enjoys math. He plays competitive baseball with the Tucson Titans and golf. For his mitzvah project, he is raising funds for the Arizona Make A Wish Foundation. He chose this organization because a cousin who was diagnosed with lymphoma at age 6 was granted her wish, and his goal is to make another child’s wish come true.
