Miami has lost a bright and true representative of the American Dream today with the tragic and untimely death of Jose Fernandez. Jose's talent, spirit and love for baseball were remarkable, and South Florida lit up every time he took the mound. My family, like many in our area, loved watching him play. But more than his accomplishments on the field, he was known as a true family man and a pillar of our community. My thoughts and deepest sympathy go out to Jose's family, and the entire Miami Marlins family. This is a truly sad day for South Florida.
