Jo-Jo, i never knew you personally, however you have saved my life on multiple occasions. I came across your grave months ago on a day where I was going to take my life. If I had not stopped at your grave, I would not be here today. I think of you everyday & I live for you. Kate and Joseph, your son is my angel sent from God. My prayers and love are sent to you. I was drawn to him. I thank you and Jo-Jo so much every single day. Thank you for having a son that saved my life. Forever in my prayers. Stay strong.

Jo-Jo, you have blessed your family with your presence here on earth, and although you are in heaven, looking down upon everyone, I am sure you are missed by all the lives you have touched. Just from reading this story brings tears to my eyes, as no parents should bury their children. Now, I am not a parent at this point in my life, however, I did lose my brother in 1998 when he was 21 years old, I happened to only be 16 at the time, however, I have seen the pain that my parents as well as I have suffered, it is a sad loss that anyone loses someone so young! May God shed his eternal light upon you and God Speed! Forever in your hearts and always on your minds, may Jo-Jo shed his eternal light upon you as well! Memories will never fade away.

I can't believe it's been a year since I've seen your smiling face. It's been a year since you and I danced to "Footloose", played with cars, and chased the cats. I miss you more and more each day. I wish you were here to watch your little sister grow up....she's absolutely gorgeous and looks just like you. I love you and miss you, JoJo, you will always have my heart.

Please accept my condolences to you and your entire family, I recently visited the company website and became aware of the news. Although I left the company in August, I wish had the opportunity to have meet Jo Jo and share the memories many of the other guys have of him. He truly will be missed both in and out of the firehouse.

What can i say that hasn't been said already. I will always miss seeing him running around in the firehouse and giving hi fives. Also seeing him wearing his fire gear and riding his fire truck. Even when i had a bad day just seeing him in the firehouse brighten my day. He will always be in my prayers as i will always miss him as it will by others that knew Jo Jo.

Kate and Joe,
Acorns, big "sticks" (in his own way of saying it), jumping in puddles. Thursday nights were early bath night when we washed the trucks. No matter what it was at the fire house, JoJo always found a way to make us laugh. JoJo was loved by all of us and he will be greatly missed. Thank you both for all the wonderful times with JoJo. I am here for all of you, whatever you may need.

Love,

Dear Katie, Joe, Sue, Augie, Jen and Family and Friends!

Simple words are so inadequate to express our feelings. This type of loss seems impossible to get over. Hopefully, knowing so many other share your grief, will give you the strength and courage to get through this tragic loss.

JoJo was loved by all who met him, especially the Jones Family. JoJo and Poppy had a special bond that won’t be forgotten, and every time he spots a Tootsie Roll Pop he will think of JoJo.

After witnessing Friday’s outpouring of love, I was left wondering how one small, beautiful three-year-old boy could touch so many lives, yet there are so many others in life that barely make a ripple after living 70, 80, 90 years? JoJo packed a lot of living and loving in those few years.

May your memories of happier times help in some small measure to ease your sorrow. In Lil’ Joe’s honor, we must all go on and embrace each day.

Please know that we love you and will be there for you, no matter what!

Kate and Joe,
Our hearts are truly broken today, please accept are deepest regrets on JoJo's passing. JoJo was one of Skyler's first friends at school and it meant alot to Deb and I that we got to know him and play with him at the park that one time. He has truly left a mark in our hearts, everytime that we would pick Skyler up I could always count on JoJo yelling to Skyler that I was there with his patented "SKYLER your Dad's here" and him coming running to us and wrapping his arms around my legs.
