The LAFC and Major League Soccer community are mourning the loss of Mauricio “Mo” Fascio, who died after a battle with COVID-19. Fascio was the vice president of LAFC’s official supporters’ group, the 3252.
The 3252 announced his death Sunday, describing Fascio as someone “whose love, joy, and passion touched everyone he knew.”
We lost a great friend today.
A great man with a big heart filled with love for his family, his friends, and his community. A great leader. A voice that stood up for what is good and what is right.
A man whose love, joy, and passion touched everyone he knew.
Rest In Peace, Mo.
