I briefly worked with J.R. Isaac when TV5 hired him to handle publicity of its young artist pool back in 2012. The campaign involved sending the talents to high-profile events, concerts, and parties and culminated with this memorable fashion shoot with his brother Raymund. During that brief period, I found J.R. to be patient and full of energy, in spite of his seemingly-pensive facade. He made sure everybody had fun. I had fun.
The experience paved the way for my three-year artist relations tenure. Moreover, most of the young artists involved found their respective places in the sun since then.
Rest in peace, J.R. Thank you for the good vibes.
