in memory

"Homeboy" is dedicated to the memory of Marco Araujo (1974 - 2008), Robert Jaramillo (1974 - 2007) and  Enrique Nunez (1967 - 2002).

Enrique (pictured right) was born and raised in Echo Park, a neighborhood northwest of downtown Los Angeles, where he lived and worked as a freelance pattern maker in the garment industry. In the years that I knew him, Enrique was a caring and kind individual and an endless source of laughter. He was enthusiastic about being interviewed for the film, but passed away before production began.

Born: June 09, 1967 - Mexico
Died: June 16, 2002 - Montebello, CA 




You are all very much missed.
