Death

“IT IS EXTREMELY heartbreaking and I come with a heavy heart to say that my Aunt Irma’s husband, Joe Garcia, has passed away due to grief,” John Martinez shared.

“I really don’t have words to explain how we all feel, PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR FAMILY, God have mercy on us, this is not easy.”

Martinez told the New York Times that Joe had visited his wife’s memorial Thursday morning to leave flowers, and when he returned home, he “practically fell over.”

GoFundMe

In a GoFundMe shared online by the duos’ family, cousin Debra Garcia Austin wrote that Joe passed away Thursday morning “as a result of a medical emergency.”

“I truly believe that Joe died of a broken heart and losing the love of his life for over 30 years was too much to bear,” Austin wrote.

Joe and Irma were high school sweethearts and married for 24 years.

Martínez said the couple leaves behind four children, ages 23, 19 and 15, and the youngest, 13.

“No child should have to go through this, my heart breaks for them,” the nephew wrote.

Attack

According to the association, it is often misdiagnosed as a heart attack due to similar symptoms. Both attacks show a dramatic change in rhythm, but there are no blocked arteries in broken heart syndrome.

Martinez said the couple have been high school sweethearts and have four children, ages 23, 19, 15 and 13.

“No child should have to go through this,” Martinez tweeted. “My heart breaks for them.”

A fourth-grade student who survived Tuesday’s shooting told CBS affiliate KENS-TV that Irma Garcia and another teacher who was killed, Eva Mireles, 44, saved her and other children’s lives.

“They were in front of my classmates to help,” he said. “To save them.”

After Tuesday’s shooting, Martinez said her aunt “sacrificed herself protecting the children in her classroom.”

“Irma Garcia is her name,” she said, “and she died a heroine.”
