“It is with complete shock and devastation to share the news of our beloved Sean Coleman’s passing. Our family is at a loss for words during this very difficult time, and he will be extremely missed by everyone who knew him. Sean Alexander Coleman reunited with his guardian angels on October 28th, 2022 at the tender age of only 15.

His passing was unexpected and premature. Sean was a fun-loving, charismatic, goofy, athletic young man. He was a loving son (the baby of the family), a caring brother, a wonderful uncle, a sweet nephew and cousin, a loyal friend, and most of all, a momma’s boy. Raised in the Yuba-Sutter and Sacramento counties, he enjoyed playing sports, playing youth basketball and youth and high school football for several years.

Most of all, he loved being surrounded by family and friends, spending quality time together, and creating lasting memories we will hold dear to our hearts. With Sean’s passing being unexpected and so sudden, it has made it extremely difficult for his family. In order to help the family, we have set up this fund in hopes that it will help relieve some of that distress. Please consider donating, as any amount will truly help our family during this difficult time.”

15-year-old Sean Coleman lost his life due to another senseless act of gun violence. When is enough enough? When are we going to start recognizing there is no coming back from death? Nobody wins…The stain of the pain lasts forever.

Our children are dying at an alarming rate…our children have access to guns and using those guns to kill someone else’s child….our children are being influenced and cultivated by gun and gang culture which only leads to either spiritual or physical death.

There is no way a 15-year-old should lose their life attending a get-together with so-called friends and there not be an uproar amongst the community.

Have we become too desensitized to young people dying via gun violence? Have we normalized this kind of outcome? I would say “end gun violence” but we’re not. I would say “we need peace” but that’s not possible. We are only left with pieces of broken hearts in these streets…I would say we need “time to heal” but how can we heal when tragedy seems to be knocking at each of our doors every other day. Loved ones can say they are healing but is anyone really truly healed?

Somebody lost a 15-year-old child…somebody lost their baby…somebody’s child took another child’s life. That will never sit right with me. I will never normalize this kind of behavior. #don’tshootourfuturedown
