Gordon Jones was only 28 years old when the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon offshore oil rig tragically claimed his life. Jones not only leaves behind a wife, Michelle, and young child, Stafford, but another baby boy that will never get to see his father. Jones had only days left on Deepwater Horizon before he was scheduled to take 7 weeks off for the birth of his second son.

CNN talks with Jones' father and brother about their memories of Gordon and their thoughts on President Obama's response to the oil spill. They are currently fighting in Washington to find answers and get better benefits for the families of the victims from the horrible disaster at Deepwater Horizon.
