"I met JC in college. We were in the MA class together. We became really good friends, to the point where we would even hangout after school and on weekends. He would call me and come all the way from Mission to just hangout. Even my parents noticed the good person you were. We always had fun and good laughs and I will cherish those memories"

"August 18, 2008
JC, I just ran into this site by coincidence. I miss you and I can't believe it's been so long since your passing. I think of you from time to time, but I try to distract myself before I start getting too emotional. I'm going to miss the passion you had for dancing with the guys in the X-treme group. You will always be in my heart. You were such a great guy and the connection we had was just beginning, but the timing was just not right, we were both young. I know you're in heaven watching from up above. Hope one day we will see each other again. I miss you."

marcos A.K.A 'your brother'

Even tho you never knew it, I also joined. I was bearly out of bootcamp on my way to MOS training. I heard about your end on a rainy day, on the phone with my wife. She said she heard about someone from Mission, his name was JC Cisneros. I hung up and I called my Marines to attention to give you a moment of silence brother. Even tho you didnt know it, I was so proud of you that day. There is no greater love in this world, than a man give his life for his friends. Semper Fi.

"I didn't know JC in his living years, but when visiting a friend, I stumbled upon his gravesite. You see, if JC was still alive, he would be only a year younger than my boyfriend who is currently serving as a cpl. in Iraq. I find comfort in knowing that your lance corporal is up in heaven, looking over our marines who are still fighting the war he once fought for. After visiting the cemetary, the heavy burden I had been carrying since my boyfriend left had suddenly been lifted. I just wanted to take a minute and let everyone, that did have the pleasure of knowing JC personally, know that even in his afterlife, he is still touching lives, and still making a difference.

"Hey J.C. or should I say Big Papa :)
I can't believe you are not here anymore. I miss you so much. Ever since you graduated from High School, I had been praying to God, to let me bump into you someday. I really miss you and I wish I could have kept in touch with you. I'm so mad at myself because you've been gone for over two years now and I had no clue. Just this past weekend I was thinking of you, and wishing you were O.K. and I had no idea you were gone. I can't stop thinking about all those good times in High School. You were a great friend and still in my heart you are the best guy I have ever known. I wish I had gotten to know your family better, so I could have been there for support on that day. I still remember you playing your guitar in class and over the phone for me. Slowly all that faded away, you went off with your life and I went on with mine, but I never forgot you and I never will. It's just so hard for me to believe this is actually true. I'm going to continue missing you so much. I know some day I'll see you in heaven.
To JC's mom and brothers I am so sorry for your loss. I know it's been a while, but for me it's like it just happened. I'm an old friend of JC's and I had no clue about all this. I'm so sorry. If there is still anything I can do please let me know at liza_gnz@yahoo.com.
J.C. I miss you."

"To the Family of Cisneros:
My son was with your son during that dreadful night. We have prayed for you and your family since. Our son regarded him as a true friend and good marine. I can only imagine the pain you feel and felt a year ago. Our son has just left again to go back to that same area for another seven months. I cried so the day our son told us of the events of that day. Our hearts and prayers are with you. He was truly a wonderful man and my son misses him dearly."

"I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Julio's photo on the news. I was so sad because he was the sweetest guy. I had been trying to get a hold of him because I want to talk to him ever since high school. I met Julio in 9th grade since then he was the guy I truly loved. I finally found him but it was too last. I know for a fact he is in Heaven like everyone else says. He always made me laugh and made by day in school. He was always the guy you could talk to about anything. I miss him so much I never got to tell him how I really felt about him. That I loved him too. My sympathy to his family. I still can't believe its been a year already, I still feel that I will bump into him one day. I still remember all the moment I had with him in high school. I know he is watching over everyone. Julio I will always love and miss you :)I wish I could have told you how I felt and what happened."
Crystal Lopez of Mission, TX/ Austin, TX

"I was Julio's recruiter and considered him a brother as I do all Marines. I don't think I've ever had to do anything harder than when I had to go notify Julio's mother of his passing. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think about him. I wear a bracelet with his name and information on it and will do so until the day I can't anymore. Julio was always respectful and honest in everything he did. The day I received the phone call my heart sank. I just refused to believe it. I know that Julio died honorably and with the deepest admiration and respect of his fellow Marines. I am currently in Fallujah, Iraq therefore I was unable to visit him on the anniversary of his death. I had my wife take flowers to his grave in my absence but God willing I will be able to visit him soon. I feel his presence every time that I go out and put myself in harms way. He was and will always be a warrior. To his family, just know that you are all in my prayers and not a day goes by when I don't think about you all. Santos, your brother loved you and was always asking me to talk to you and possibly recruit you. Take good care of your mother and brother. I am here for you if you ever need anything. (ssgt_martinez_d@yahoo.com) He wanted nothing but the best for all of you. Make him proud. I know he makes me proud. Take care of each other and may God bless you."
SSgt David Martinez Jr. of Fallujah, Iraq

I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country. And to your family, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

"Hi chaparro flaco :P I couldn't believe it when they told me what had happened, and it's even harder to believe that's already been a year since you left. I cried that day and I cried again today just knowing you're not around anymore. I often think about you and how sweet you always were to me, you always put a smile on my face. You were a great friend and I wish I had kept in touch w/ you after high school, but everything happens for a reason. I have no doubt that you're up in heaven still smiling and making everybody around you smile. I always think about you when that song comes on the radio...I hope u know what I'm talking about. Keep watching over your loved ones and being the guy w/ the big, kind heart. You're in a better place and happier than any of us down here. I hope to see you again someday. Love."

"My Marine
Iím sitting in this closet
I still canít believe your gone, Julio,
I keep asking myself when and why this happened

Iím waiting for an e-mail
Iím waiting for a call
But itís getting late

The days are flying by and March is almost here
But you wonít be here when Twenty-nine Palms base arrives

I still remember that night in August
I tried so hard to keep the tears in
Because I didnít want you to see me cry
Or the pain from showing

I held you tight, knowing that I might never see you again
You walked out the door
I started to cry
I washed my face to take off the mascara
That had smeared with my tears

You came into my life at the best time ever
You treated me with love
I will cherish that forever

I wish I could go back
Freeze that night in August
When you were still breathing
Never let go of you
So that you would still be here today

But you chose to be on of them
The very few
So brave
So strong
Who decided to fight for this country

Now I see your name on the list of so many others
That have given their lives
I prayed to God that I would never see you on that list
But you left with pride
The way you wished

When I saw you on that list
My heart stopped
A rush of pain killed my heart

Iím amazed that Iím still here today
Your death has cause me so much sadness

Now the world seems so bare
Iím full of despair
Iím searching for answers
That are no longer there

The only thing that keeps me going
Is knowing that weíll be together again my beloved Marine"

"Our Marine
for JC Cisneros
10/27/82 - 1/6/05

People come and go
and leave others behind
but no one seems to know why
They fight for our country
and get recognized
but what happens when one soldier dies?
He gets awarded
and labeled a hero
but the pride of a family slowly dies
We're proud of our soldier
our fine Marine
who had so many goals
and so many dreams
It's hard to believe
that he's really gone
but it is well known that
he is up in heaven looking down
on friends & family that shed tears for him
on all of us that wish to be with him
JC we love you & we'll never forget
what you did for this country
we can never regret.

This is something that I wrote a couple of days after JC passed away. I couldn't figure any other way to express what I was feeling and even now it's hard to accept that we're not going to see him anymore. I will always remember his smile and his mischievous laugh that made the rest of us laugh with him. I think about him everyday and I just want him to know that his friends and family will never forget him and we will always love him."

"This is the first message ive ever done that i get to describe what or how i felt about all this. i met JC and i knew he was a true friend from taking me home when i didnt have anyone to watch my back to going to the ranch and getting lost in the middle of the monte, its bad always up for anything and knowing how to have a good time. JC youve been missed, REGULATOR FOR LIFE, to the fallen soilder MUCH LOVE CANT WAIT TO JOIN YOU!!"
Leinad Salinas REGULATORS FOR LIFE of McAllen, TX/ hidalgo

"Well like Bea i found this site awhile back but i could never write anything because i had never let go that was until about a week or so ago. I had a dream and well basically to spare the entire details of the dream..JC came out wearing a red polo and some blue jeans and told me that he was ok..that i didnt have to cry anymore that the songs i hear that remind me of him should make me smile and not cry. that when i pass by his house i shouldnt avoid looking anymore. that i was making him sad cause i cried alot so that i had to stop or he was goin to tickle me...of course this was just a dream but i woke up and i could smell him and i really believe that he felt my heart sad and that thats why he came to visit me in my dream. i love jc and miss him soooooo much but im starting to let go...ten months and i can finally start to let go.. thank you for coming to my dream and letting me know everything is ok. i love you!

He was always there for me especially to make me laugh. It hurt me so much when i found out what had happened. I had actually jst seen him the semester before at Pan-Am. I was standing in line and then i heard someone say hi and it was him. We spoke for a bit and he was still the same sweet guy. Julio was a hero whether he would've past away or not. He'll never be forgotten because he will always be in many peoples hearts especially mine."
