My name is Oscar Ramos and I was a close friend to Jesus ("Adolfo") for years. Jesus Hernandez and myself, his friends from the Boys and Girls Club, are making this GoFundMe to help support his family in this hard time.
Many of you in the neighborhood know what happened to Adolfo and many of you don't know who he was. He was only 19 years old when he was shot 30+ times by SFPD this past Tuesday night.
There are many insinuations being displayed in the media labeling Adolfo as an "armed robber." Regardless of what happened prior to the shooting, he did not deserve to be murdered by SFPD and definitley did not deserve to be shot at by dozens of police officers over and over and over. He was just a 19 year old boy and hadn't even lived all of his life.
He was not what the media is painting him to be. Adolfo was always there for his loved ones, always laughing, always caring for everyone. Adolfo was someone who could make any situation good. His sense of humor brought warmth and happiness to everyone. His greatest treasure was his family and he brought his youngest brother everywhere he went, and was very proud to do so. Not once has the media mentioned the positive impact he brought to the community -- nor even acknowledged him whatsoever. He was a youth leader at the Mission Boys and Girls club and planned many field trips for the youth to participate in.
He was not anything malicious as the media is painting him to be. He was our friend and our family.
Any donations towards his funeral costs would be appreciated to help. Thank you.
His funeral will be held next week and ALL money will be handled by his family as we have received permission from his mother and father to create this page. Thank you again.
