Became a celebrity when he won $250,000 and a Jeep on the Fox reality series "Murder in Small Town X." The final episode aired one week before September 11.
My friend, in this life I have been honored in knowing someone like you. You have always been a great friend and a great person and I miss your advice and our conversations so much, you always knew the right words to say. I miss you! This is not goodbye but until we meet again. You're forever my Angel.
I have cried so much for losing my just-one-hour friend whom I met somewhere in New York to ask for help. I did hope so much he wasn't in the collapsed WTC, but he was. I received a big shock when I stopped by NY Fire Department to see his picture on the wall.

To my cousin Angel Luis Juarbe Jr. Thank you for all that you have done for the people of New York and for the Juarbe family. You gave your own life to help another and that is something I will never forget. All of the Juarbe family is proud of you for what you have done. You will never be forgotten and will always have a place in my heart.

I only knew of you what I saw on television on "Murder in Small Town X." I was pulling for you the whole time because you did not tolerate bullies, and you were an excellent detective. Thank you for being who you were. Rest in peace.
I was very upset when I heard about Angel. I had seen him solve the murder mystery on "Murder in Small Town X." Since I don't know anyone in New York, my mind went to him on 9/11. I thought, surely no. My thoughts and prayers go to his family. May God help you to remember him always.
He was a hero and a role model for me. I am ten and 9-11 was horrible for me.
Angel was nothing short of a hero. He was a brilliant, smart person, as we found out on "Murder in Small Town X." Angel, wherever you are up there, we miss you, and we cannot wait to be there, so we can once again experience your kindness and heroism.
Angel was the best you could be on the TV show as he proved to the world that he was smartest and won the game. We'll miss you Angel! R.I.P

My son and I watched "Murder in Small Town X." We didn't get to watch the very last episode until three weeks after September 11 and realized the person we had wanted to win because of his kindness was lost in the terrible attack. Our hearts go out to you and your family. May you watch over them from above.

Light, and eternity, and love, and all are mine at last. And now they are Angel's.
