The eldest son of Yucatecan entrepreneur Teresa Cazola Bravo was killed by two gunmen Friday afternoon Sept. 1 in the city of Villahermosa, Tabasco. His body was transported to Merida for a weekend vigil at the Panteon Florido and burial attended by hundreds of friends and associates of his family.
Jerry Barceló Cazola was a well-known entrepreneur and activist in Tabasco society, where he lived and where he had profound affection, according to the web portal Tabasco Hoy.
Barceló Cazola studied in Merida at Centro Universitario Montejo and
for several years lived in the capital of Tabasco, from where he directed the
companies 911 Alarmas and Ecopower Tabasco, as well as being an associate director of the chain of pastry shops “Tere Cazola” founded by his mother.
In his role as an activist, Barceló Cazola was a member of the group Security and Justice of Tabasco, formed by entrepreneurs, professionals and other members of civil society, points out Proceso.
This organization meets regularly with public security officials of the state to analyze and make proposals of the civil society to combat crime.
Barceló was assassinated Friday by two gunmen while driving his vehicle in the center of Villahermosa.
The Tabasco Hoy portal emphasizes that ‘Jerry’ was defined by his friends and acquaintances as an enthusiastic, positive and supportive person with the most needy, which led him to take action on behalf of the vulnerable, such as children with cancer.
“He was one of the most active and strongest people to try to change the things of our state, was the pillar of the Security Round Table,” said the president of that group, Mario Rodríguez Murillo.
“Crime truncated the life of a successful entrepreneur, good father, good son and excellent friend, ” he said.
Notably, Barceló Cazola was also the nephew of the ex-governor of Tabasco Victor Manuel Barceló Rodriguez.
