My latest installation which just closed at the National Museum of Mexican Art was the most difficult piece I've ever had to produce. It remembers my only child, Jeff Abbey Maldonado, Jr., who was was killed one day after his 19th birthday. He was on his way home from the barbershop, preparing for his first public performance, when the van he was riding in was fired upon by a reputed gang member in broad daylight. Jeff, Jr., suffered a mortal wound and was pronounced dead at 8:20 p.m. on July 25, 2010. - Jeff, Sr.
