On the 20th of Janurary, 2015 Jesua was found at his job, Moonfish, having an apparent seizure. He was rushed to Dr. Phillips Hospital where they found hemorrhaging in his brain. He was then flown to ORMC and in further tests they discovered the brain hemorrhage was cause due to an AVM. Which is a malformation of blood vessels that Jeusa was born with. The 12 days that Jeusa spent in the hosptial was a complete rollercoaster for the family. When we were finally given hope from the doctors, Jesua suffered a pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in the lungs). It caused his respiratory system to fail, and despite the doctors exhausting every option Jesua passed away 2/1/2015.
Jesua had been fighting for his life for a long time. He came to the United States when he was 14 and never stopped working to make his life better. At 17 tragedy struck when he was involved in an accident that took the life of one of his friends. Jesua bore the weight of this and it has never stopped affecting his life. Depsite all of this Jeusa never gave up hope. He never once broke or wanted to give up on his dreams. He was one of the strongest people that most people have ever met.
Jesua was our brightest star. He was so full of life and never stopped smiling. He would drop every thing if his family or friends ever needed anything. He never wanted anyone around him to be sad, almost as if it was his life's mission to make sure everyone was happy. He had the heart of a lion and the knees of a soccer star. The one person he loved more than, I believe, anyone else was his hero Cristiano Ronaldo. He dreamed of starting a business and eventually retiring to the mountains of Peru near Machu Picchu with our family. It breaks our hearts that those memories will never be made.
Jesua's parents, brothers, and myself are now trying to organize the broken peices of our lives so we can start rebuilding. Though it is difficult right now to see a furture time still ticks on, and when we are ready to take the first steps fowards your donations will help us do that. Thank you everyone again for your kindess, support, and love.
