IATSE Remembers Crew Member J.C. “Spike” Osorio

-

 

J.C. “Spike” Osorio tragically passed away last week. The rigging technician, whose full name was Juan “Spike” Wu Osorio, fell from a rafter. We encourage anyone to donate to the fundraiser to support the crew member’s family.

IATSE shared a remembrance on behalf of the family of J.C. “Spike” Osorio:

“He was the best person who cared for all living things, a person that we all should strive to be. J.C. Spike Osorio was taken away from us too soon on February 6, 2024. He was the most wonderful, thoughtful, and loving husband, a caring son, a wise brother, a strong friend, a brave veteran, a euphorbia enthusiast, a meticulous lighting technician, and a stickler for safety at work.

He would talk your ear off given the chance and the opportunity, but he would always take the time to listen and care about what others needed to say. He would want everyone he knows to carry on the torch of maintaining safety and protections for the working people not only of IATSE but beyond as well.

He is survived by his wife, Joanne Osorio-Wu, his mother, Zoila Osorio, and his two schnauzers, Murphy Pastrami and Sirius Pickle. To paraphrase a line from one of his favorite podcasts, ‘He was Spike, he lives forever in every moment he existed, and swore to every star in the cosmos, that he never forgot it was a gift, not for one second.'”
