Travis Scott Astroworld Festival: Naperville Family Best Friends Franco Patino, Jake Jurinek, Killed in Lawsuits


CHICAGO (WLS) – The families of two Naperville best friends killed at the Texas Astroworld Festival earlier this month filed a wrongful death lawsuit earlier this month.

Jacob “Jake” Jurinek, 20, and Franco Patiño, 21, were among ten people killed in a crowd surge at Travis Scott’s concert in Houston on November 5. Both played football for Neuqua Valley High School in Naperville.

“Parents shouldn’t have to worry about their children being hit, trampled, trampled and crushed to death during a concert,” said Philip Corboy, Jr., partner of Corboy & Demetrio.

The lawsuits were filed in Harris County, Texas. Defendants include Jacques Bermon Webster II, A / K / A Travis Scott, Live Nation Worldwide, ScoreMore Holdings, Harris County Sports & Convention Corp. and Scott’s label, Cactus Jack Records.

Jurinek was a student at Southern Illinois University Carbondale where he pursued his passion for art and media, and worked as a graphic arts and media intern for the sports department, his family said.

Patiño was a University of Dayton student majoring in mechanical engineering technology with a minor in biomechanics of human movement, according to the university.
