Pulse Shooting Victims List: Names, Profiles & Photos

Jean Carlos Nieves Rodriguez, 27


Nieves, who went to high school in Orlando and was originally from Puerto Rico, was a general manager at a check cashing business, according to the Orlando Sentinel. He bought his first house a month and a half ago and also wanted to help his mother find a new place to live, friends told the newspaper. "He was just a caring, loving guy — just like a big teddy bear," Ivonne Irizarry told the Sentinel. "He wanted to be the best at what he did, and he would work very hard to achieve that. So if he had to put in the long hours to get it right, he'd do it. If he had to stay to work a double [shift], he did it. That's why whatever job he went to, he became a manager." (Facebook)
