Brandeis High School is mourning the death of a much-admired staff member, Alfred Jimenez, also affectionately known as Mr. Fred, whose funeral services are to begin on Monday in Helotes. Jimenez's life was tragically cut short following what has been described as an interaction with a special needs student that led to his death, now declared a homicide by authorities.

An ongoing investigation spearheaded by Northside ISD police, with assistance from partner agencies, is delving into the circumstances surrounding the death of the instructional assistant. Upon gathering sufficient evidence, the district’s police chief has stated that the case will be presented to the district attorney. It is then up to the district attorney to determine the subsequent steps in this case, as reported by KENS 5.

Mr. Jimenez's son reflects on his father's legacy, wishing him to be remembered as an outgoing man who loved to cook, help his community, and spend time with the people he loved. His dedication to children with disabilities was emblematic of his character, and despite not having to work, he chose to. His commitment and influence were far-reaching, touching the lives of many students and faculty at Brandeis High School.

Mr. Jimenez's obituary notes that his memory will be honored at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Helotes, according to the same KENS 5 report.
