HOw many of you who are posting on here actually knew Jorge? Because for all of us who did, we know that he will always be remembered. He was a great guy with lots of love. He was never afraid to show the true him...silly and kind of a dork. He had a big heart. He may have gotten in with the wrong crowd, but the only thing to blame his death on is the psycho who killed him. NOTHING else.

Listen dumbass. Some people live in the real world. He dropped out of school to work full time because unlike you, he had to fend for himself.

It's people like Shannon and HS parent that are scumbags. What happened to Jorge should've happened to them.

His best friend , fellow rapper and his team mate any time they play basket ball gose to collage has never done drugs and is a wonderful athlete i have known Jorge's best friend for manyyyy years . the other 3 main people he hung out with are my 2 brothers and another friend my brother is so anit drug and alcahol he wont take an asprin he is a davison one track STAR at his collage and played basket ball with him so obviously he wasnt in with the wrong crowd for the most part . Jorge was a wonderful person very polite to my mother and me . when doe rapping ever mean violence ? have u hurd his songs ? have u ever met him or his family . u cant judge what u never knew by the way he died and where he lives and what he wanted to be dont u tell ur kids u can be any thing that u want when u grow up he happened to like music. His mother though i never met her must be a wonderful woman to raise a great guy liek jorge. my best friend is one kid of seven ask any one who has ever talked to her once she is the sweetest person u would ever meet her moms an angel her kids are in a big house all the kids are nice and polite and go to school they are caring and they go to church every sunday and her mom dose it all by her self and she has cancer she loves each and every child. so it dosent matter how many kids u have and if ur married or single its if ur able to take care of them or not so dont dare talk bad about jorges mother she obviously lovees her children and dose every thing for them as she could she must be a great woman . If jorge was still alive and u met him right now all u sick ppl would be like what a nice kid . but u never met him u cant talk i bet u sick ppl are siting in a crappy apt and snoop dogg lil wayen bryd man all those ppl "set up to failure" are sitting in huge mansions loveing there life like Jorge would be till this crazy stupid kid had to end it my brother knew the kid that killed Jorge he said he was crazy thats y my brother stopped talking to him and huge out with Jorge . so all of u assholes that dont respect the dead re think it u didnt know him realli the ppl who do are the ppl that matter we all knew him as a wonderfull guy a nice kid a great basket ball player and a good rapper. he would have showed all of u miss guided ppl differant but he never had the chance now its too late.

um she didnt do it on her own she did it with the help of my father so let's get that straight and second she does not have cancer thank God for that. She and my father raised all the kids so she didn't fly solo.

He was a wonderful person raised by a great mother and ofcourse my father who is a police officer. Labelling people is very ignorant and shows lack of respect and morality. First of all if you don't know the whole story don't comment. You were not there when this tragedy happend. Have respect for our family he is someone's son and brother. It doesnt matter where you come from or what race you are. Tradgedy and death doesnt choose based on social stature or race. I have seen mothers that have a degree treat their kids like scum and non high school graduate mothers raise resposible good citizens. You can't stereotype people based on their backgrounds. His siblings are respectful and resposible people who have gotten ahead in life. With that said take a look at where u come from and the poison that u are shooting out with your negative comments before you pass judgement because at the end of the day your name is not Jesus Christ. God bless!!!!!!!!
