Jose was a great cadet and overall was a great person. It is sad that we lost him, but here are a few words from his family and fellow cadets.
Jose was a great friend, a great brother, a great son, a great cadet, and a great soul and person over all. He was the sweetest most high energy and goofiest person you can meet his smile is so contagious his laugh was the best sound ever and now I won’t hear that ever again but I know for a fact he would want everyone who knew him to know that he loved them he cared for all of you guys he always put people first before him he was taken so fast from us but everyone has 1 job and that is to keep his spirit alive and always remember him for who he was and how each one of you guys remembered him. We all have a different version of jose and i'm glad i got to experience years of life with him, that's my baby brother and i’ll forever ride for him. LLJ 4vr Joses Wrld -Sister

Why is it painful to lose someone like Jose ?
Because Jose represents a life of the possible he tried new things like possible, he tried new things?Because I believe he wanted to better himself! And that is what makes this particular loss so tragic. Sergeant Shepard
Jose was a quiet, reserved person. He got along with everyone. He passed no judgment and accepted all as equals. - Sergeant Helfrich
As a company commander of Jose. I am devastated and lost! I loved every cadet as if they’re my kids. Jose was one of the sweetest kids I knew, He never knew when to give up and also never failed to uplift people. One of the hardest things for me is that I won’t be able to fix his uniform again. I won’t be able to inspect him again. And lastly I wish I could hear him say “you’re the best company commander“ again . We love you Jose! Rest in paradise!- SENG ING

He was a part of the JROTC Raider team and a great cadet overall. He had dreams of becoming a photographer. He never put himself before anyone. He inspired many people to be courageous and strong. He was a battle buddy of everyone in the raider team and more importantly he was our brother - Marcos B.
LLJ Jose, you were one of the sweetest people I ever met in my life. Nothing but love in your heart to give. You didn’t deserve this, you had a whole life ahead of you. But I know you’re in a better place. Thank you for the memories and thank you for the love. Rest in ParadiseForever Jose’s World -Bente B
He was in my company and I remember doing inspection and Jose would try to fix his uniform and ask his squad leader for help, he wasn’t afraid to ask for it. He had this really soft quiet voice in rotc but his personality was what radiated from him. He was funny and knew when to get serious and when it mattered. He was a good cadet, outstanding friend, and an extraordinary person. - Trinity V.
I just wanted to say that I had one full conversation with him and it wasn’t enough. It’s so sad to know that that one conversation I had with him over his crooked name tag is the only thing I have to remember him by. My thoughts and prayers are with his family . I hope that in time they can Heal from this loss and I want to say to Jose you will always be in the hearts of your fellow cadets and you will always be apart of the Viking battalion.Fly high LLJ.-Mark semien

Jose was the funniest person in our math class. He was always laughing with people in the class and always had a smile, even when he was lost in class and I would help him get his work done. He was the light of the room and got along with everyone he met. - Cassandra
