Funeral & Memorial Expenses

$34,433 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 1,000 people in 14 months
My name is Jose Noel, and I'm 19 years old. On January 13, 2018 my mother was taken away from me. My mother and sister were victims of a gun assault while they were leaving North Riverside Mall. My mother was shot in the head, and did not make it. My sister was left with a wounded arm. My two sibblings and I are left without a mother or father- my brother is 9, my sister is 14, and I'm 19. The funds would help cover for my mothers funeral and memorial expenses.

Ha llegado a mi atención que alguien estuvo tomando fotos de la misa de mi madre- no se si fueron fotógrafos profesionales o si fue alguna persona que asistió. Si es que an estado tan pendiente de esto, recuerden que en mi gofundme puse que no quería nada que ver con las noticias. Estás fotos fueron tomadas sin permiso, pero entre la gente desgraciadamente se encontró un fotógrafo, porque es que mi dolor tiene que ser su noticia del día? Porfavor les pido respeto, si es que tienen respeto, y solidaridad. No quiero nada que ver con las noticias y mucho menos que MI dolor sean las noticias de nadie. Dejen a mi madre descansar en paz y déjenme a mi y mi familia llorarla en paz.


It has come to my attention that someone was taking photos at my moms mass- I'm not sure if it was a photographer or someone who attended. If you guys are really so caught up with the news, I mentioned on my gofundme update that I wanted nothing to do with the news. These pictures were taken without anyone consent. Why does my pain have to be the news of your day? I only ask for respect from people, and to leave me and my family alone.

I just want to reach out to everyone that donated anything they could and say thank you so much, I really appreciate it. It has and will help a lot with the expenses. There's been a lot of arranging I've had to do, but I just want to let everyone that donated that they can attend the wake on Tuesday, January 23rd taking place at Wolniak Funeral Home on 57th and Pulaski from 3-9 pm. On Wednesday, January 24th we will say our last goodbyes at the funeral home at 8:45am and proceed to the mass that will take place at 10 am at Our Lady of Tepeyac. I would appreciate that no cameras or media is around in this terrible time. My family and myself need our privacy and I do not want my family to feel uncomfortable. The gofundme page will remain open, as donations are still appreciated. My siblings and I would really need it while we adjust to the new unfortunate truth...Thank you to everyone again, from the bottom of my heart.
