I went to high school with Julian. We were in marching band together. We always called him Jules. He was always one of the nicest and most fun people I went to school with. He cared so much about his friends and if we hadn’t seen or spoken to each other in a while, he was the kind of person to just pick the friendship up wherever we left off. I regret that I haven’t spoken to him in years, but I’m heartbroken that his laugh won’t be heard again. His laugh was so infectious. My deepest condolences to the family. He will be missed.

I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers for you and your family. Wish I was there to give you a hug

I met Julian in 2013 while traveling in the USA. We were just heading north when we met Julian at MSU in Springfield. Even if we only knew each other for a few days, the news makes me very sad. I still remember him as a happy, friendly and funny person. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Stay Strong.
Rest in Peace Julian. Greetings from Magdeburg, Germany

Margaret and Jose and family, nothing we can say will take away the pain! But know you are in our prayers and I am a phone call away if you need to talk! I miss y’all and I am here anyway you need me!

Julian was a close friend throughout highschool and college with many laughs had in the band bus, and driving too and from Springfield on the weekends. He was always in a good mood, always made you smile no matter what and I will truly miss him.

Julian was like family to my family. He was best friend with my cousin Lexie. He just fit right in. He was so funny and caring!! I will never forget him. Rest In Peace Julian, you will be missed. ❤️

We are so very sorry for you loss. May all the prayers comfort you and your family.

I knew Julian personally, as I do the rest of his family. I know how loved he was. He was an amazing brother and an amazing person. I wish his family the best, they deserve it through a tough time like this. My condolences, to the Torres family.

I had the pleasure to meet Julian at MSU, since then we became friends for life. It didn’t matter the distance, when we were together we always would have a good time. The last time I saw Julian was back in 2018 when I visited the country and I have no words to describe how much fun we had together! I still can’t believe it. My deepest condolences to the family.

I met Julian in 2016. He brought a lot of smiles and laughs into my life with his personality and humor. He loved having deep conversations about life, and really enjoyed when I would play Selena. He was a bright light in this world and the memories we got to create will never be forgotten. My deep condolences to his family and friends. You’re all in my heart and prayers.

I met Julian at Goddard, where we worked together. He was always a bright, happy person who loved everyone. I remember being so shy and Julian really pushed me to go out of my way and meet new people. He had such a huge impact on my life and I pray he knows that. 🙏🏽 Keeping Julian and his family in my prayers.

There are no words to the way i feel about losing were literally one of my best friends and i mean that from the bottom of my heart there is not a day that will go by where i will not think of you, you were taken too soon i love you so much jackie j im so sorry 🙁
