Created August 17, 2018

He is a son, a brother, a father, a cousin, a nephew, an uncle and a dear friend to all he meets. Joe Taeotui also known as Jungle was always full of life, a family man to not only his immediate family but also his extended family. Always supportive and respectful to all walks of life. A wonderful father to his young daughter and husband to his beautiful wife. As a man who was raised in the Bayview, San Francisco he made it his life mission to encourage and educate the youth and the community against street violence for a better quality of life. He became is a community worker for San Francisco Street Violence Prevention Program, an advocate against gun violence. 

On August 13, 2018 during his lunch break he was shot at 5 times point blank by two suspects in front of his home. Of those 5 shots fired, he was hit by 3. He fought a good fight to come back strong but after week he had succumb to his injuries. The pain and heartache by the loss of his life resonates not just within our family but throughout the community. As a father Joe wanted to witness all of his daughters achievements whether it be big or small, to embrace her culture with pride and to also ensure that Jodie grace her own stage in achieving higher education. All of the donations made will be going in pursuit of that, to his daughter Jodie. These donations will be set aside for Jodie and will serve as her college scholarship. We want to thank everyone for the support you have given whether in sharing, donating or in prayers of solace.
