Julio Cesar Jacinto Rogel was born on October 1st, 1995 in Mexico. He was born into a family with his mother, Virginia Rogel and his father, Julio Jacinto Miranda; with 8 loving siblings, Miriam, Erica, Esmeralda, Alma, Jose Juan, Jesus, Joshua, and David. Growing up Julio learned quickly that family was everything to him. As his family grew, the love Julio had for them grew as well. In May of 2015, Julio graduated high school from Pine Forest High School in Pensacola, FL. In his class Julio had a lot of friends that he later on learned were going to be lifelong companions. A couple of years ago, Julio lost a very close friend, Moses Sturges, who we all know Julio is gleaming with joy to be reunited with. As the years passed Julio noticed how hard of a worker his mother was. She always encouraged him and gave him the strength to carry out his goals and aspirations. With knowing the love his mother held in her heart for him, at the end of everyday he wanted to make her proud.
Even with the obstacles life threw in Julio’s way, he never lost sight of his dreams. Julio continued to quietly work and would be extremely proud to tell you all today that he was enrolled in College, ready to pursue his career of Dentistry. Sadly, someone took his life, taking away with him Julio’s dreams, visions, and aspirations. However, we all know his dreams, goals, and aspirations. He will live on in the hearts of his family, loved ones, and friends.
Julio, we want you to know that you’ve impacted every person you’ve met, and we will not stop fighting until your goals and dreams come true.
As we turn the page, looking onto the next chapter of our lives, we know you will be guiding us and holding our hand every step of the way.
Fly high, Julio, and stay free. Be sure to keep your arms open until we meet again.
