tyler clementi parents speak

It's been well over a year since Rutgers University student Tyler Clementi committed suicide after his roommate Dharun Ravi streamed a video of Tyler with another man over the Internet.

For the first time since Tyler's death, his parents have decided to open about their son.

Here's what his mother Jane had to say:

"Not a minute goes by that I don’t think about him."

"It's especially hard right now because this was his favorite time of year. So we're trying to find a new way to celebrate Christmas. I'm sad – and trying to get through it."

More from Tyler's father Joe:

"I'll read a few things until I get choked up – then I'll stop."

And more from Jane on the ongoing case:

"It wouldn't be fair to Tyler's memory to let this slide. Something good has to come out of this terrible situation."

Thanks for sharing, Clementi family. We continue to send you our thoughts and prayers, and we truly that justice is served in the case against Tyler's roommate.

Stay strong.

    Say Ainn't that the kind of that guy who calls himself Peerez Hilton doe's. You know post pictures of every thing to closeted gays having sex to wardrobe malfunctions of tween girls.

    oops does

    Parents should've done a better job. Maybe if they hadn't raised a little sissy he'd still be here. To any haters on me…. I don't care about your opinion. However, if it makes you feel big to attach me, go ahead. I promise I'm not delicate and can take it. Sheesh…

    "does" is the only part of your post you chose to correct?

    Re: Shelah – Your parents should of done a better job raising you. I'm not a hater, I feel sorry for you. There must be something awful going on inside your head to even consider writing this, never mind an utter lack of human kindness, or the ability to spell… I worry about the neighbors of your parent's garage, where I assume you live a sad and lonely life full of indiscriminate hate, and hope you don't go on a shooting rampage because you have zero friends.

    My heart goes out to the Clementi family. It's a shame young people today are complete buffons and take more time tearing each other down, rather than making an effort to appreciate good qualities in their peers.

    Youth is definitely wasted on the (spoiled, lazy, foolish, entitled, AMERICAN) young…

    It's people like you, not Tyler, who give Americans a bad wrap.

    Re: youdontknowjacque – You are correct. On one hand I saw the double n's and liked the way they looked. I spelled Peerez so his little BOT would not kick my post. On the other hand people who worry about grammar on a blog , well I don't need to explain the idiousosity of thats.

    fergie…: it's not a grammar thing, well I guess it kind of is, because I have no idea what you're trying to convey… are you bothered that he posted this story? why wouldn't he? a poor kid killed himself because his private life was broadcasted for all his schoolmates to see… gay or not, I'm sure most people would not be thrilled about that.

    This is really sad. I am sorry it happened. Perez you have to see some irony in the fact that you used to "out" people. Bless his family.



  9. 9

    What his roommate did was 'out' him which is the same thing Perez use to do. If there really is justice, Perez will go to jail too.

    So heartbreaking. Love and prayers to Jane and Joe.
