NBA player Dwyane Wade gets emotional over school shooting victim buried in his jersey

On Sunday, Oliver’s parents told Univision talk show “Al Punto” that they buried their son on February 17 wearing Wade’s Miami Heat jersey.

“You hurt for the family. If you ever get the opportunity to speak to them, you just try to hope the time where he was alive, that you were able to bring some form of joy to his life and something memorable.”

Three days after the shooting, Oliver was laid to rest. Hundreds of people attended his funeral and honored his passion for sports by wearing sports jerseys ## ## .

Wade found out this news on Sunday and reacted on Twitter. “You’re about to make me cry this afternoon,” he said.

“It’s way BIGGER than basketball,” he wrote. “We are the voices for the people that don’t get to be heard. Joaquin Oliver may you Rest In Peace and i dedicate my return and the rest of this Miami Heat season to you.”
