‘They were a great couple,’ said Josh La Torre, a friend to the duo who did marketing for the company.

‘It’s a hard day. … for somebody who was so young to have the kind of success he had owning his own business at such a young age is impressive.’

La Torre shared that he had known Fusaro for nearly five years. He had lived in New Jersey, up until 2016, before moving to Denver.

He detailed how he and Fusaro had just spent time at a vaping related convention in Las Vegas, last week, and spoke on the phone about a possible business venture.

‘He was a very different than the typical kid in his age group,’ La Torre said of his friend, who was vocal of his support of President Donald Trump. 

‘He started a business that was very successful. That’s really hard to do in a field that’s so saturated, and at 26 that’s almost unheard of.’ 

The crash is still being investigated.
