According to the authorities, Joseph Rosenbaum was one of the two victims who were killed in the Black Lives Matter. They both were shot in the head by a 17-year old boy, Kyle Rittenhouse from Illinois.
Joseph Rosenbaum had a 3-year-old daughter when he died with his fiancé. They used to live in Texas and Joseph was about to marry his fiancé soon.
Joseph Rosenbaum’s friend, Adriana Gracia started a fundraiser named GoFundMe to help Joseph’s fiancé with his funeral costs.

On the page, Adriana wrote, “I’m raising money to help and support my friend Jojo, who died last night in the protest of Jacob Blake.”
Kyle Rittenhouse trial
During the trial which happened on 10 November 2021, Kyle broke into tears and told the prosecutors that he held an AR-15 rifle because it looked cool and he did not intend to kill someone.
He further said, “I did not intend to kill them, I intended to stop the people who were attacking me.”
Kyle also accepted that he tried to stop the attackers forcefully but he did not know that it will kill them.
