Sending you a big hug to wherever you are. I will never forget your spectacular voice and most of all how incredible you were always with me. I had the honor to share the stage with you in “Regina” and it was amazing to also be able to share some laughs with you … I will always take you with me in my heart and prayers.”
TÚ, mi amigo Jano Fuentes, fuiste una persona INIGUALABLE, con un talento único y especial. Mi corazón está roto! Te mando el más fuerte de los abrazos donde quiera que estés! JAMÁS olvidaré tu espectacular voz y sobre todo lo increíble que siempre fuiste conmigo.

Todo mi amor para ti y tu familia. Te llevaré en mi corazón y oraciones por siempre ——– Q.E.P.D.
Actress Vanessa Bauche said Jano was yet “another victim of the gun violence in the U.S.” and asked her followers to help out with a donation to cover the cost of his funeral services.

Jano, whose attack happened just a week after the killing of The Voice alum Christina Grimmie, was shot several times in the head in an ambush outside his Tras Bambalinas School while celebrating his birthday with friends. The 45-year-old singer was confirmed dead by the Cook County Medical Examiner.
