May the memories of our children remain forever…
Jack Phoenix, a.k.a. SAKE, was the victim of a hit and run in 2015. He was crossing Venice Blvd at 8:30 pm on a Sunday night. Police were chasing a stolen car at high speed. There were no lights, no sirens. “TO SERVE AND PROTECT”. He was only fifteen. He would have been sixteen a month later on Christmas Eve.

Father Nick Phoenix, speaks about the death of his teenage son, Jack, who was struck and killed by a stolen car that was fleeing the police in 2015.
This is a horrible and unnecessary story, repeated with frightening regularity across the US. In this case, Jack’s family has engaged to keep Jack’s dream alive.
Those of us who have lost a loved one in a #PoliceChase are connected in a way that we never imagined possible. It’s important that we remain resolute and strong.
I hope that Sake’s family and friends are able to find inner peace while remembering all that was wonderful about him.
