Jasmine Fiore's Funeral - 'Everyone Was Crying'

Jasmine Fiore's close friends and family attended a private funeral service for the slain model over the weekend -- and we're told it was "an extremely emotional event."

According to someone in attendance, over 200 people gathered at the home where Jasmine grew up in Santa Cruz, CA to remember the brutally murdered bikini model.

We're told friends and family -- including Jasmine's mother, Lisa Lepore, and Jasmine's ex-boyfriend, Robert Hasman -- read poems and told heartfelt stories about Jasmine ... and "everyone was crying."

Our source says plans are in the works to hold a public memorial for Jasmine in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks.
