    I loved this man like a brother! He was my boss at Nissan for 4 years before all this happened and in that short time I grew very close to him! I’m sure everyone who had the opportunity to get to know Jo Jo as I called him feels the same way! I can’t begin to describe how deeply sorry I am for y’all’s loss! You will definitely be missed Jo Jo! See you on the other side brother!!
