  • ” Our Hero ”
    To those of you who knew my Nephew Albert, you all know we lost a very special person. Albert was such a smart, caring and devoted person. He put 100% in all that he set his mind on, he graduated from San Jose State with High honors and dedicated his free time to help those in need at Debug Criminal Justic Clinic. He knew this was his calling and never expected anything in return…. We miss him dearly, we want justice to be served and the animal (s) who did this to him to be caught so we can heal. This lost has been so hard on our family and with everyone’s support and fight, we can help the wonderful people at San Jose Police Department get him / her / or them! We are begging the public to please help us find them! God Bless you all and please pass the word!

  • Albert may have helped you or a love one?!?!

    Albert was always getting letters from PRISON, as INMATES would share his name as a MAN who would HELP THEM. And he did. Albert was probably the ONLY hope for some of those locked up, some for life. And Albert carried that hope with grace and consistency. He knocked on doors that others would not. He challenged institutions and powerful legal clinics, for those he was advocating for and was relentless. Since his first day of service, he showed up every Sunday afternoon, during our legal clinic, to assist families going through the most difficult moments of their lives – when their child got arrested, or a husband was just handed a life sentence – and needed assistance. Albert was made for the job, and throughout his time, advocated for families in a way only he was equipped to do. There are youngsters walking around San Jose freely rather than trapped in the system because of Albert, and INMATES in prison doing life that have rekindled hope of an APPEAL because of Albert.

    Please get the word out about Alberts murder in the streets, jails and

  • Albert Cobarrubias a devoted father, San Jose State GRAD and aspired Lawyer. Albert’s senseless murder is clearly a mistaken identity, he had his whole life ahead of him. He wasn’t involved with GANGS, he was devoted to his family and educational goals.

    Our community has lost a GREAT man whom sought to change social justice!!!
