The murder of 19 yr. old Jesse Ortiz

Pontiac, MI

I am a family member of the victim. I wish that the media would update the public on what has happened to this family. Jesse was shot in the head from 20 feet away with a rifle. His brother was right next to him and held his little brother until help arrived. I know that this is not the only murder that has occurred recently in Jax , but I do think that the truth needs to be told. It was a horrific crime and Jesse did nothing to provoke it. He was unarmed and not threatening anyone. He was at The Palms visiting his brother that night when he was intentionally gunned down. There is a fund in his name to help the family.The Jesse Ortiz Memorial Fund is with Atlantic Coast Bank. You can stop by any branch or mail to this address:1425 Atlantic Blvd., Neptune Beach,FL 32266

Yea, and you're about as tough as you claim he was by posting anonymous. I have to wonder why that is. I read some of the legal case reviews and no where in it does it state he tried to kill anyone. He was just an innocent in the wrong place at the wrong time.

So, tell me, was one of those convicted your boyfriend????

It's so hard to tell what the truth is in this city it's so corrupt. The news prints whatever a prosecutor wants without proof.

I know what really happened. I was there and seen it all . The guy who killed him was a crip from cali and tried to come to Jacksonville to recruit his gang hints the name "Big blue" . He tried to get younger kids to join his gang from school . Jesse was our protector ,we could even walk home from school without that 30 year old gang leader trying to jump us. Big blue would wait with his gang to try to caught one of us high school KIDS and jumpeD us with bats n throwing up gang signs. He murder jesse. Rest in peace big blue will roit in jail and in hell. He will not see his daughter in neither life bc of his gang relations.roit in hell big blue

It's funny how you want to stay anonymous and still bad mouth the victim after all of these years. Yea unfortunately Jesse died ON THIS DAY from your friend shooting him in the head but karma is working its wonders while your friend DESERVES to rot in prison for his poor choices. You must be really miserable coming back on here living in the past pointing fingers. Karma must've got you too.
Little girl, no one was even worried about you and your little boyfriend and brother. Or who ever y'all had involved. Being bullies creating stories in your head and started drama is how it got to this point. There was no win win for anyone so quit being a miserable low life brat disrespecting his family on here.
