Franky Jimmy Dejesus Velazquez, 50, of Orlando, Florida, a native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, was killed in the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. He was a visual merchandizer at Forever 21.

A family member posted this message on social media: "What happened in Orlando affects all of us because it is an act of hate against the freedom to be who you are. I’m trying not to fall pray to hate, at the person who killed you, at the gringos, at Trump, at the terrorists … because then I would be part of the vicious circle of judge and jury. They killed you out of hate for the freedom to be who you are and it makes me hurt inside because if there was anyone who always had a smile, who helped me, who was caring with me, my music and my madnesses, it was you."
