John Paul made many friends at the various schools he attended who meant the world to him. Among the many were Preston, Colby, and Alex. In 2018, the family moved to Fort Worth, Texas and eventually settled in San Antonio. John Paul was full of life, loved to make people, especially his friends and family, laugh, and loved people of all walks of life. 

In his short life, John Paul was very aware of the injustices of the world and contemplated ways in which he could make a difference. For instance, he wanted to find a better solution to landfills to make the world a better place. He was a kind soul, very polite, and always grateful. He loved movies, video games, and going on adventurous outings. Prior to his passing he spent 3 wonderful months visiting his father in Nicaragua. John Paul attended Community Bible Church in San Antonio with the family every week. He was an amazing big brother to his little sister Jonae and would do anything for her.
