JC and I were together back when we were 15 years old in Escondido. He was nothing but a sweetheart! Although our lives went down different paths, I would occasionally run into him and could always tell that he was not happy with his path and was seeking change but it was never easy. Its been about 10 years since I have seen him and I just thought of him today and decided to Google his name only to find terrible news of his death at the hands of cops who choose to fire first before ever taking the time to decide another method of apprehension. Although I understand the lifestyle choices he made were not the best, I do hope people can realize the heart of gold JC had. Even though we broke up, we stayed friends, he reached out to me during my pregnancy, and again after my daughter was born. Even at such a young age, he found a place in my heart forever. I pray for his family and friends and hope that you can find peace in knowing that he is in a better place and no longer struggling in this world! I love you JC...RIP!
