U.S. Tourist Celebrating His First Wedding Anniversary Killed In Barcelona Terror Attack
Jared Tucker, a swimming pool installer who visited Barcelona on a one-year wedding anniversary trip with his wife, is among the dead in the city’s horrific terror attack, his father told the Daily News.
“We just got the text — Jared’s body was identified at the morgue by his wife,” grieving dad Daniel Tucker, 76, told the Daily News, his voice cracking with emotion.
“It’s just something we really just don’t understand. I don’t know what else to say.”
“Everybody loved him. He’s been a partner working with me since he was 16 years old. We have a pool business, and he’s been right there the whole time. All our customers love him. All people love him,” he added.
He said Jared, 42, and wife Heidi Nunes, 40, traveled to Europe to celebrate their one-year wedding anniversary.
“It was their first big trip together, the first time they went to Europe,” he said. “But Jared dropped out of sight right after the terror attack. They were doing everything to find him. We got a lot of people involved to see if they could find him. There were no reports until this morning. She was taken over to the consulate.”
