During the evening of May 2, 2015, Esperanza and Juli were attending a family event and were in the backyard of an apartment building in Livermore. They were celebrating a family member's first communion and a birthday.

Just before 7:00 p.m., a car crashed into the yard striking Esperanza and Juli who both died at the scene. The driver had been speeding before the crash. The car knocked out a power supply box and sideswiped two trees before crashing into the backyard patio.

Brian Jones, age 35, was arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. Reportedly, he had been at a wine festival before the crash. He was released on bail.

If you saw the accident, you are urged to contact the Police at 925-371- 4777.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family with expenses. Both the

mother and child will be flown to Mexico for burial.

Brian Jones is innocent unless proven guilty. 

However we offer this advice to all drivers: If you find that you are wasted, drunk or doped up on street drugs or prescription drugs or if you are falling asleep on your feet, do NOT drive. Call a family member or a friend for a ride; or take a taxi; or stay where you are until you sober up; or crawl home on your hands and knees. It will be better for you and for the world if you do.

Regret can last a lifetime.

The family members of Esperanza and Juli are devastated over their sudden and tragic deaths. Oceans of tears will be shed for them. They will be forever mourned.

Esperanza and Juli are survived by many loving friends and family members including the husband and father; a 22 year old daughter and a 10 year old son.

Pray for justice for Esperanza and for Juli.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and are gone before we can say goodbye.

Pray for all who die young. They barely had a chance to live.

God save us from the drunk and the doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father. Amen.

Pray that Esperanza and Juli are in heaven. Pray that they are at peace and are with God. Amen.
