Jose Fernandez' Ex-Girlfriend Carla Mendoza Speaks Out

Jose Fernandez‘ ex-girlfriend is speaking out after his tragic death.

Carla Mendoza, who dated the 24-year-old Miami Marlins pitcher for three years, took to Instagram to honor his memory.

“My deepest love goes out to those who saw jose as more than an athlete, but as a passionate, raw human being,” Carla wrote. “The heart break is unbearable. There was so much more to him than anyone could even begin to understand. I’m fortunate enough to have loved and be loved by jose, and his family, for over 3 crazy beautiful years. Thank you so much to everyone who’s reached out to me, it truly means a lot.”

She continued, “Nothing will make this time easy for anyone and if you do one thing today, let it be that you tell those close to you how much you love them. Not one day will pass by that I don’t think about him or love him. Jose never went one moment without knowing how much support and love he had from those close to him.”

Carla also asked the public to respect his current girlfriend, Maria Arias, and the child she’s carrying.

“My heart goes out to Maria, as she is expecting his child,” Carla concluded. “Please honor Jose‘s memory by respecting his daughter and her mother as I’m sure this is all too painful for her as well.”

Jose was killed on Sunday (September 25) after a boating accident in Miami Beach, Fla.
