Jean Carlos Nieves Rodriguez, 27, was remembered by family and friends as a kind man and a hard worker.
Nieves Rodriguez, originally from Puerto Rico, had worked as manager of a McDonald's and a check-cashing store and bought his first house a month and a half ago, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
"He wanted to be the best at what he did, and he would work very hard to achieve that. ... That's why whatever job he went to, he became a manager," friend Ivonne Irizarry told the newspaper.
His sister Valeria Monroig said he "cared more about others than about himself."
