WHO IS ANTHONY

Anthony was only 18 years old when he was shot and killed by San Jose Police on July 4, 2016.  Our Anthony was a young man who had dreams and admirations like most young adults.  He was set to graduate the year his life was stolen from us.  If you knew Anthony, you were blessed to know such a loyal, independent, and hilarious young man.  -- Sandy and Jesse Sanchez

“You took a beautiful life.

I don’t know why you brought guns

when my son needed help.

You should’ve helped him.

My son would be alive today.”
