Jesus G. Reyes
Kansas City, Missouri
Skateboarder inspired others with his art
He could regularly be found at the local skate park, with orange Cheetos dust on the corners of his mouth. Despite only being 15, he inspired other kids to skate, and many friends believed his dream of going pro could be realized.
He was called “Lil Jesus.” Many of his other family and friends called him “Boots,” his features mirroring Dora the Explorer’s iconic sidekick. He also made a name for himself as Rezr, expressing his identity through graffiti art.
