This is a fundraiser created for Jacky Vue by the family. We want everyone to remember this tragedy. Jacky Vue was a kind person, one who is sympathetic towards anyone. He participated in Cub Scout, and Boy Scouts in his early childhood alongside with 3 other brothers. He had hopes, and dreams of helping others in-need by joining the Police service. This year, Jacky graduated from Harding Senior high School at the age of 19. He loved spending time outdoor activities, fishing, and camping. He also had a fascination in Science. Jacky Vue was a homicide victim at The Hmong Freedom Federation Festival on July 1st of 2018, a annual event with 50,000+ participants for the past decade. This incident was the first in which a person was killed at the annual festival. The incident happened during the evening hours @4pm. Jacky was having a fun time with his companion, when several individuals ran up toward Jacky with confrontation. A moment too soon, two gun shot from a gunman struct Jacky Vue twice in the torso, courageous men, and women attempt to recover his wounds. Unfortunately Jacky Vue later passed at Regions Hospital at surgery. We hope for everyone to spread the love by sharing this with your friends, and love ones. Together we will provide Jacky with a peaceful, and everlasting burial. - Vue Family
