Gina Xiong

In honor of Gina Xiong Justice for Joe Gina Kayleen

Gina, my sister-in-law, was such an attentive and loving mother. Her whole world was centered around her daughter, Kayleen. Gina was also very bright, hard-working and bubbly. She had a very strong work ethic.

When she became pregnant at age 15, she didn’t fear what that would mean for her future as a young mom. She was brave and eager to take on the role of providing for and supporting her daughter, so Kayleen would have the best life possible. Together with her husband, Joe, they gave everything they could to their little girl.

But on May 13, 2018, the night of Mother’s Day, as 22-year-old Gina was celebrating her mom, sisters and herself, a gunman shot into their living room. He killed her husband, Joe (22), her daughter, Kayleen (5), and herself.

In an instant, our world shattered. We can no longer give them all the love that they left behind. They are truly missed.
