Memorial Set for Ryan Jenkins

9/26/2009 8:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nearly five weeks after he hanged himself in the Thunderbird Motel in British Columbia, friends and family will remember murder suspect Ryan Jenkins in a private memorial.


TMZ has obtained the invitation sent out by Ryan's father, Dan Jenkins, inviting friends and family to the service to be held October 1 in Calgary.

As we've reported, a large public memorial is scheduled for Jenkins' wife -- murdered swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore -- on Oct. 4 in Las Vegas.

Buena Park Police tell us they're hoping to receive Jenkins' hard drive -- found with him at the Thunderbird -- from Canadian authorities within the next two weeks.

Jeez, I have no compassion at all for the killer but I do for his family and innocent friends who likely did not know what this guy was capable of...TMZ very tacky of you to not black out the address of the church. The family deserves a little quiet time to have a service, now protesters will likely show up and, absolutely the media. Not very bright of you.

Celebrating the life of .........I had to laugh for a moment. Seriously, the only people who would show up are his friends (if he had any) and his family. Nobody else would want to go to celebrate the life of a murderer.

I'm sure the family loved him, but I would hate to be a guest at that funeral. What do you say? I'm sure your son is in Hell for his horrible crime, or do you lie?

Cal 13- Does it really matter what they say she did for a living?, does it make you more comfortable to hear about what he (supposedly) did if she were a hooker or the like? Would you not have a problem doing this to her if she were a porn star but you would if she were a model? that is sick in itself, not saying you would but it comes across that way with a comment like that, doesn't make much difference to me what she did, it still doesn't change the fact the the murderer had no problems about beating a woman to death and then going about mutilating her, i'm sorry but if she were a hooker or a Lawyer it doesn't matter to me, if he was with her and then did this to her after she supposedly dissappointed him, it is sick irregardless of those details, she was still a human being who would have loved to still be alive, unlike Jenkins (supposedly if he was the one who did it), and for the family of Jenkins i do feel sorry for them as they will never know what the story is now he's gone, it wasn't fair of him to do that to them or the other victims, for their sake i do hope it is found that it wasn't him but it doesn't look good so far. RIP to all involved.

granted this girl did not deserve to die but why is no one telling about her porn past as april vaughn---someone stated this and I looked it up and yep-there she is------------so it may give some insight as to how screwed up both of them were-------------her pictures are out there for anyone to see-----when you are in that business you do attract the weirdos------------I hope that this gives other girls in the business pause for thought

Well Kudos to his family for a tasteful invitation and really good pic. It ALMOST makes you have pity for him. But I DON"T. I do feel for his family that they had no idea what a psycho he was. It is amazing that because she was so ugly and he was somewhat handsome, that our perception of evil is blurred because of his appearance. If he did this, and I think he did, this should be a lesson in stereotyping to us all.

It's difficult to believe when you seen that pic of him that he is capable of this because he looks so young, sweet and innocent. However he is not.
And when looking at the pics of her, because she is not only unattractive, but also somewhat alien and fake looking, we feel less compassion for her. Looks are deceeiving my friends. I do believe she was a whore/escort, but she didn't deserve to be killed and mutilated.

What are you guys gonna say if on his laptop, he left a note professing his innocence? He would have had nothing to lose at this point because he is dead. If he left a note saying that he did kill JF then the case is closed for me, I highly doubt that he did and his laptop has been in custody for 5 weeks. I think there is some sort of suicide note and some information on that computer. He left it open on his bed. If he wanted to hide it, he would have thrown it in the dumpster. It still would have been found but at least he put forth the effort. I think he was trying to tell his family something. This is terrible for both families and both deserve the correct answers. The media needs to respect both families privacy for the memorials.
