Seau at a fundraising event for his foundation in March 2012 with his mother, Luisa, and father Tiaina. Luisa regularly attended home games when Seau played for the Chargers, and if she heard fans criticizing her son, they could expect an earful from the linebacker's mom. "She was as famous as Junior, always stopping to take pictures with fans at the stadium," says Gina. "To see her screaming after his death, it just pulls your heart to pieces."
