"We regret to inform you of the passing of one of our KWI family members. Our Director of Keeper Wars Officiating, Leonardo (Jorge) Contreras, left us too soon.
As we try to come to terms with this shocking news, we ask that all of our KWI community keep Jorge and his family in their prayers.
There are so many things that the world should know about this man, but if I needed to sum him up in one sentence. This man was one of the nicest, most genuine, kind-hearted people that would do anything for the people around him.
To Keeper Wars, he is one of the individuals that helped make my vision a reality. He believed in what we are doing for the soccer community and keepers in general. Since day one of coming on board, Jorge never asked to be paid for his support. The only argument we ever had was when KWI did pay him because he genuinely only wanted to be a part of the KWI family and leave a lasting impact around the US. This shows a sliver of what Jorge was like as a human.
Jorge, with tears in my eyes, I can tell you that you left not only this company but this world better than you found it.
He will be truly missed by so many. For those that want to support his family through this devastating time, please click the link below.
As I like to believe, it's not goodbye; it's an "I will see you when I see you; we'll have a couple of cold ones then brother."
