On behalf of our Brother Jorge Santiago's family, we wish to share the following message from them:
Jorge "June" Santiago passed away suddenly on August 25, 2016 at the age of 48. Loving and devoted to his family.
Funeral services will take place on September 1st , 2016 at RG Ortiz Funeral Home 2121 Westchester Ave, Bronx, NY 10462 from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
Floral tributes may be sent. On behalf of the Santiago and Ruiz families, we ask that everyone refrain from taking any photography or wearing any tribute t-shirts with his picture on them. We all look forward to seeing everyone there.
Jorge was a great family man and a great union brother. He joined the local in 1994 and worked as an extra for many companies, most notably for Capital. He also had a love of music and was a great DJ -- even volunteering to DJ at one of 814's summer events a few years ago. He had many friends throughout the industry and he will definitely be missed. On behalf of the members and leadership of Local 814, we send our love and best wishes to his family during this difficult time. For those wanting to pay their final respects the details are above.
