He loved to play video games, even as a toddler he had to play his “neme” Jorell was so positive that he would kick cancers ass that the gaming community had no idea of what he was going thru.

  1. May each of you find courage to face tomorrow as you rest in the knowledge that we truly care about each of your needs and that we will be here to walk beside you in your journey of grief.

    The staff of Legacy Cremation & Funeral Services

  2. I’m so very sorry you are not physically here with us anymore. I miss you so much that it’s hard to breathe. I love you and one day I will be able to hug you again. It’s not goodbye, it’s I will see you again. 💚

  3. I’ll forever remember the days we hung out playing games, hiking, and fishing love ya bro

  4. Anytime Jorell would asked to spend the night, I would always say yes because he was always so quiet. Even though he isn’t my nephew by blood, I consider him family. He would enjoy family singing nights at our house, even if we sounded awful, lol. Jorell you will be greatly missed and always remembered. For Christina, I’ve known you for a long time and we even worked together. I want to thank you for having a well behaved son, and no words can make you feel any better because I can’t even imagine, but I’m so, so, sorry for your loss 😢

  5. So sorry you have to endure this! May he live forever in your hearts! An angel he will always be for you. Prayers always!

  6. Dear Jorell,
    You will always be missed here in San Diego. I enjoyed the time you spent together so much. I don’t think I’ve ever met a nicer young man who always put everyone else before his own interests. You are the shining example of the best of us. Lisa and Joe Sitko

  7. My nephew,
    I was there when you were born. I was so happy and proud to be your aunt and a part of your life. You were the most kind, humble, loving person to be around. I love you forever and will miss you everyday.

  8. May your beautiful soul rest in peace forever and always. I will always cherish the wonderful memories that our family has made together. You were a fun and caring young boy who grew to be an outstanding and honorable man. I know you are there with my mom and our other family members and one day we will all be reunited. Until then, please know that your mom and sister will be supported and loved by all of us and we will be here for each other. We love you Jorell. Forever and always.

    • Sherri is correct. We are all here for you Christina and Alies’cia. No matter the miles between us, we just want to support you.

  9. Jorell,
    Even though you’re my 2nd cousin, I’ve always considered you my nephew. It’s so hard to put how amazing, funny & genuine you were in just a few words. You are still one of the funniest humans I’ve had the pleasure to be related to. I love how we’d all stay up late (sometimes 24 hours at a time) to play board games, video games or my favorite: our home-grown version of Name That Tune. I have peace knowing well all be together again. Love you Nephew

  10. Jorell was my favorite cousin and still is. I can’t belive he is gone, I loved him so much and I thought it was going to be alright and he was gonna beat this but sadly he did not beat it. He was the nicest and such a good person and I miss him so much it’s so unreal. Anyways, I miss and love you jorell. Rest in peace! ❤❤❤

  11. I love and miss you man, always could count on you to cheer any of us up wether it was online or in person, I will miss gaming, streaming and hanging out with you. Rest In Peace.

  12. Miss you man. Really wish I could’ve seen you one more time. It’s been too many years since I was able to see you and you were taken too soon. I’ll cherish all the memories I have forever. Some of the best times I had growing up were hanging out with you when we were kids. Rest in peace Jorell.

  13. My Dearest Nephew, Jorell,
    No words can describe the pain we feel from your absence. When you left, you took a part of each and every one of us that you left behind. This world was just too ugly for your Beautiful Soul. You were a Precious Baby Boy, I secretly wished you were mine. A little turd of a Toddler, who made me fear all “terrible twos.” A Fearless and Outgoing Kid, who loved adventure. An Athletic Teen, who enjoyed sports and getting fit. A Young Man who grew to be so handsome, making all the girls giddy. A Man, who was the Strongest Man I know. You were all these things, but to the ones who know you most know that you were so much more. You will Never Be Forgotten. For you are Superman, and Nobody forgets their Favorite Super Hero. Fly High Jorell.

    Love you Forever, Aunt Chelsea

  15. I have a lot of memories from when we were kids. I remember Jorell was always so fun to be around and such a kind person. I’ll never forget those memories. They’ll live on inside my heart as he will too. I wish I could’ve seen you beforehand after all these years. But I know you’re still here with all of us. Rest in peace Jorell. Lots of love.
