We are deeply saddened by the loss of our beloved, Sean Monterrosa, who passed away on June 2, 2020. He was a wonderful son, brother, a friend who touched the lives of those around him. He was loyal, hard-working, and had a heart of gold. He was truly one of a kind.
Sean was unarmed, nonviolent, and surrendering when he was shot and killed by officer Jarrett Tonn of Vallejo PD through the backseat of an unmarked pickup truck with an AR-15. The unmarked pickup truck hadn't even stopped when shots were fired. We now have civil rights and police brutality attorney, John Burris taking on the case.
Sean was robbed of his community. He was an active member of the San Francisco/Bay Area community. He worked and attended various youth programs such as MYEEP, BGCSF, 7TEEPEES, HORIZONS ULTD, DJ PROJECT, and finished his program at Job Train in Menlo Park as a carpenter.
Our family is mourning his loss, and we are all devastated. Sean has been put to rest on June 19, 2020, we want to thank everyone who contributed and helped bring awareness to his story.
Many have been asking how they can financially support our family as we undergo a long fight for justice. Sean was a key provider for our household and his absence has taken a toll. If it's in your heart to help bless this family, may God remunerate you abundantly.
Thank you, everyone and God bless you.
