Grieving father asks Facebook for a unique Look Back video, they deliver

Feb 13, 2014 By Molly

John Berlin’s son Jesse died of natural causes on January 28, 2012 at the young age of 21. Obviously, a life cut short. A little over a week ago, John made a tearful plea to Facebook asking them to give him his son’s Look Back video, which he couldn’t see because he didn’t have access to Jesse’s account.

Reddit picked up the video and shared it hundreds of thousands of times and soon it had millions of views…

It didn’t take long for Facebook to respond, sending John and his family Jesse Berlin’s Look Back video…

I can only imagine what it must have been like to sit back and watch this as the young man’s parents.
