In the Puertecito de la Virgen there is not a soul that does not know who Jeanette Zacarías is.
On August 20, the boxer left for Montreal full of illusions to face, eight days later, the Canadian Marie Pier Houle. Last night she came back cheered, amid cheers, applause, chants, sobs and tears.
The entire neighborhood was waiting for Jeanette, who arrived escorted by dozens of people who flooded the vicinity of number 204 Felipe Ángeles street, the place where they were summoned to watch over the body of the 18-year-old girl, who died on September 2. , because of the aftermath that a knockout left him five days earlier.
“Mom, Jeanette is coming, I’ll do a Facebook live for everyone to see!” A young woman yelled at her mother.
Around 200 people set up a fence to welcome the hearse and technology allowed another hundred to share their grief from a distance.
“¡Te love Jeanette!”, “¡A la bio, a la bao, a la bim, well, ba, Jeanette, Jeanette, ra ra ra!”.
These and other expressions of affection were heard when the bone-colored coffin with gold details descended from the truck to enter the Ejidal Hall.
“It’s a disgrace, she was a great little girl, she was an athlete,” said Doña Cristina, a neighbor who came to the Ejidal Hall to say goodbye to the new local legend.
The 100 chairs arranged for the ceremony were insufficient. First the family entered and immediately many people began to enter.
To access they were asked to put on antibacterial gel and wear a face mask, since the Covid-19 pandemic still does not respect the duel.
“She was a great friend, always with a smile, it’s very sad,” said Daniela, who was pampered by other neighbors.
The coffin was covered with pink gloves and boxing briefs. Many applauded, but others did not give credit and did not stop crying.
Between displays of love, banners, balloons and even the diploma they gave him for his last fight, they fired Jeanette.
