Pedie Perez

Picture of Pedie Perez Richard “Pedie” Pedro Perez III was unarmed and non-violent when he was murdered by police officer Wallace Jensen on September 14th, 2014. He was shot at Uncle Sam’s Liquor & Market near our family business, Perez Brothers Trucking, located across the street in a residential and commercial neighborhood which is where our business has been for over 30 years. He spent much time frequenting the store, from the young age of 3 for snacks, soda, ice cream, etc., all along growing close to local residents, employees, and owners of the store. After growing up in Pinole and graduating from Pinole Valley High School, his friendships ranged from Pinole to Richmond. As an adult working for our family business in Richmond, Pedie had established friendships and began to love them and worry about their well-being. Going out of his way physically and financially to help those in need. He was known and loved by all around, including store owners, who generously offered to cover all costs of his services. All who knew Pedie were devastated, the community lost a wonderful person that day. Pedie was a Christian and loved the Lord and was a member of Grace Bible Church where Pastor Jesse Gistand resided over Pedie’s service. Pedie was a good person all around. Not many people are blessed with hearts as big as his and we will do everything in our power to bring him justice. Senseless police brutality is getting out of control and we all need to come together and take a stand. Help us bring the truth to light.
