A beloved son
24 years old
Jesus was always helping others, he believed no one should take advantage of others and that the world needed more love. He was practically raised by his grandmother in Colombia - who he tenderly referred to as his huesitos - his bones. When he was 12, he joined his mother in the United States. He didn’t know any English then and challenged himself to not watch any Spanish television. In 6 months he was speaking English. He loved to read and would finish large books in a week.
Jesus wanted to be a maxillofacial surgeon - to reconstruct fractures or deformities in the face, he was very interested in that.
He was just 24 years old.
