May 18 2023

One of the 10-year-olds aspired to be a lawyer
someday. Another, a marine biologist.

Another child had just celebrated her school
honor roll achievement with her family, while
another student was saving up for a trip to
Disney World.

They were among the 19 children & 2 teachers
who were killed on May 24, 2022, after a gun-
man walked into Robb Elementary school in
Uvalde, Texas, & began firing.

In the aftermath of the massacre, family mem-
bers shared photos & memories of their loved
ones who were killed – from the big dreams they
had to the simple things that brought them joy.

Here’s what friends & relatives want everyone
to remember about the people they lost.

IN MEMORIAM - pictures of victims, each picture
linking to a description of the victim:

her cousin told the Washington Post.

Jacklyn Jaylen Cazares


Jacklyn Jaylen Cazares was killed along
with her cousin, friend & classmate Annabell
Guadalupe Rodriguez, according to posts
by her family on social media.

“She was full of love & full of life. She
would do anything for anybody,” Cazares’
father Jacinto Cazares told reporters in a
video distributed by Reuters. “And to me,
she’s a little firecracker, man. It comforts
me a little bit to think she would be the
one to help her friends in need.”

Cazares’ family recently came together to
celebrate her first Communion, her father

“Through COVID, through the death of a
family member a year ago, it brought us
together & it was something beautiful,”
he added. “And now, we’re being brought
together, but it is in tragedy.”

Jacinto Cazares arrived at the scene at
Robb Elementary School shortly after he
heard that something was going on, joined
near the building’s front door by several
other men who had children at the school,
he told The Washington Post.

He said he wanted to rush into the building
as soon as he heard the gunshots coming
from inside the school.

“There were 5 or 6 of (us) fathers, hearing
the gunshots, & (police officers) were telling
us to move back,” Cazares told the paper. “We
didn’t care about us. We wanted to storm the
building. We were saying, ‘Let’s go’ because
that is how worried we were, & we wanted to
get our babies out.”

Hours later, he learned his daughter had been
shot & killed, the Post reported.


Makenna Lee Elrod


Makenna’s mother, April Elrod, confirmed her
child’s death to CNN.

“Her smile would light up a room,” Allison
McCullough, Makenna’s aunt, told ABC. She
added that Makenna loved to play softball,
do gymnastics & spend time with her family.
She was a natural leader & loved school.

McCullough described her niece as “a light
to all who knew her. She loved her family &
friends so much,” McCullough said.


Jose Flores Jr.


Jose Flores Jr., 10, was an amazing kid & big
brother to his siblings, his father Jose Flores Sr.
told CNN. & he loved baseball & video games.

“He was always full of energy, ready to play till
the night,” Flores said.

Jose Jr. wanted to be a police officer when he
grew up because he wanted to protect others.
His mother, Cynthia Flores, remembered how
he would always help her around the house,
especially when it came to his baby brother.

“He would just be like my little shadow,” she
told CNN’s Gary Tuchman. “He would just be
helping me with the baby. He had a thing with
babies, like my friends’ babies. He just had a
thing with babies. He was always nice.”

Jose Jr.’s sister Endrea Flores was also in the
4th grade at Robb Elementary, though Endrea
was in a different class than her brother. What
she appreciated most about her older brother,
she said, was “that he would always support
me & he would always play with me.”


Eliahna ‘Ellie’ Garcia


Eliahna “Ellie” Garcia was 9 years old & about to
turn 10, family members told CNN affiliate KHOU.

Rogelio Lugo & Nelda Lugo, Ellie’s grandparents,
told the Los Angeles Times that she was a 4th-
grader at the school & the 2nd-eldest of 5 girls
in the family.

She loved the movie “Encanto,” cheerleading &
basketball, according to her grandparents. They
said she dreamed of becoming a teacher.


Irma Garcia


Irma Garcia was a teacher, a wife & mother to
4 children, according to a GoFundMe set up to
raise funds for her funeral expenses & family

“Sweet, kind, loving. Fun with the greatest person-
ality. A wonderful 4th grade teacher at Robb Ele-
mentary that was a victim in a Texas school shoot-
ing in Uvalde, Texas. She sacrificed herself protec-
ting the kids in her classroom. She was a hero. She
was loved by many & will truly be missed,” the cam-
paign site reads.

Garcia’s nephew, John Martinez, told The Washing-
ton Post that officials informed the family that she
helped shield students from the gunfire.

“I want her to be remembered as someone who
sacrificed her life & put her life on the line for her
kids,” Martinez told the paper. “They weren’t just
her students. Those were her kids, & she put her
life on the line, she lost her life to protect them.
That’s the type of person she was.”

2 days after Garcia’s death, her husband, Joe, suf-
fered a fatal heart attack, the Archdiocese of San
Antonio told CNN. The pair’s family says he died of
a broken heart.

“Please keep our family in your thoughts & prayers,”
the GoFundMe post said. “I truly believe Joe died of
a broken heart & losing the love of his life of more
than 25 years was too much to bear.”

Garcia had been an educator for 23 years, according
to her profile on the Uvalde Consolidated Independent
School District website. It was her 5th year co-teach-
ing with Eva Mireles, who was also among the victims
of the massacre.


Uziyah Garcia


10-year-old Uziyah Garcia was “full of life,” according
to an uncle, Mitch Renfro. He loved video games &
anything with wheels. He leaves behind two sisters.

“The sweetest little boy that I’ve ever known,” Garcia’s
grandfather Manny Renfro told CNN affiliate KSAT.
“I’m not just saying that because he was my grandkid.”

Uziyah last visited his grandfather in San Angelo dur-
ing his spring break. Renfro recalls tossing around a
football with him & how quickly his grandson took to
the sport.

“We started throwing the football together, & I was
teaching him pass patterns. Such a fast little boy &
he could catch a ball so good,” Renfro said. “There
were certain plays that I would call that he would
remember & he would do it exactly like we practiced.”


Amerie Jo Garza


Amerie Jo Garza had recently just turned 10 years
old, & her family had fulfilled her birthday wishes
by gifting her a phone, her father Angel Garza told
CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Garza eventually learned from two students that
his daughter tried to use her new phone to call
authorities during the shooting. He is a med aide,
he explained, & when he responded to the scene,
he saw a girl covered in blood who told him that
someone had shot her best friend.

When Garza asked who her best friend was, the
girl replied, “Amerie.” His daughter.

“I just want people to know she died trying to save
her classmates,” Garza said. “She just wanted to
save everyone.”

The family has been trying to cope with Amerie’s
death. Garza said his 3-year-old son has been ask-
ing for his sister every morning when he wakes up.
