I'm writing this while sick to my stomach as to this terrible news. Jorge and I served together in the USCG reserve... he was always passionate about law enforcement, had an infectious smile and was such a goof ball. He will be sorely missed by family and friends. Thank you Arias for all the memories, you truly showed honor, respect and devotion to duty. Rest in peace brother,
