"Its almost been a year since Mr. Escalante passed and yet his lessons continue to resonate in my life 20 years after. I truly would like to tell his family that I am so thankful to them for sharing him with his students. When he was at school he was always on! But twenty years ago I didn't much wonder about what he did when he went home. You were truly his support. Thank You, Thank You!

As an educator, teaching English at a very challenging school, I often used "Stand and Deliver" as a tool to inspire my students to work to their full potential. I was very saddened to know that Mr. Escalante had indeed passed away! He was a great teacher, and because of him, I go to school everyday with the sole purpose of educating and inspiring my own students. Thank you Mr. Escalante!! R.I.P."

"What measures the worth of a man's life? Is the legacy he leaves behind for others to grow on. Mr. Escalante has left alot for many to follow as an example when it come to dealing with people from all backgrounds. He saw what could be and he work toward that goal. My condolences to the Escalante family.
He is healing the broken hearted ones, and is binding up their painful spots."
