    Found out a little more. He was filming in Chokoloskee and was flying back. It happened over the everglades.

    He was one of my favorites and one of the reasons I relocated to South Florida. He will be missed greatly. What a tragedy.

    Horrible news. I learned so much from watching him since I was a kid. Never met him, but always dreamed of fishing on the Spanish Fly one day.
    Jose, you will be missed.

    I met him personally at Miami Sportfishing club recently and I was so impressed by his personality and how genuine he was. He was my inspiration for many years and I meeting him was a real treat for me. I am rarely impressed by celebrities but he impressed me very much. I'm in disbelief....What a loss to the fishing community. The Naples fire department said crash was not survivable. Geez... God speed to a heck of a fisherman and person. RIP Jose...

    Very sad news. My wife & I meet him last November, he was truly a gentleman & so very down to earth. We talk as if we'd been old friends & in a way we were.

    RIP :angel

    Terrible news. Jose really was a laid back, down to earth guy. Spent about 20 minutes with him at the Miami Boat Show a couple years ago as he gave me the E-ticket tour of his SeaVee. Hate to hear of his unnatural passing.
