On August 17, 2015, San Jose Police killed Richard "Harpo" Jacquez on a street by his cousin's home in South San Jose. He was shot five times in the back, he had no weapon, and was the fourth police killing in eight days. He was remembered tonight at a vigil attended by over 200 family, friends, and community members. People who spoke remembered him as a loving and present father, son, brother, cousin, grandfather, uncle, and friend -- someone who gave his last dollar to a person in need or who would run immediately by your side if you needed help. The families of Antonio Guzman Lopez, Diana Showman, and Oscar Grant came to show their support and solidarity.
As the family prepares for his funeral, they are requesting support for his burial costs. Any donations are very much appreciated through this gofundme site: http://www.gofundme.com/5a252w54
