Isabella Thallas Age

Isabella Thallas was 21 years old.


Family has described the two as the love of each other’s lives.

“They lived that to the max every single day,” her father said.

Thallas had just celebrated her 21st birthday earlier in the week. She challenged her family to do better each day than they did the day before, her father said. It built on the message of Simon’s company, Be A Good Person. A locally-based clothing line, the entire family adopted its motto and has worn clothing by the brand in the days since the shooting. Logos for the company can be found all around the memorial. Inspiration from a young woman and a young company that could lead to a future park.

“A place of peace, a place of fellowship and friendship,” Thallas said. “Where any walk of life and the human being can come to, four-legged or two-legged can come too and just enjoy each other.”


Darian Simon is the co-owner and co-founder of the clothing label Be a Good Person, which specializes in streetwear.

Cause of Death

According to a probable cause affidavit cited by The Denver Post, Darian Simon and Isabella Thallas were taking their dog, named Rocco, out for a walk in the 3000 blocks of North Huron Street at around 11.42 am when he yelled at the pooch to poop.

Simon reportedly heard a stranger’s voice from a ground-level apartment asking if they were going to train their dog to go to the bathroom. He tried to ignore the stranger’s comments but the stranger went on to point a gun towards them, which he initially mistook for a pellet gunshot.

Several gunshots were fired, hitting Simon and Thallas. Thallas was announced dead at the moment while Simon was wounded. Simon fled away but could not get far because of his injuries. He was taken to a hospital suffering from gunshot wounds to the back and leg.

According to the description of a GoFundMe campaign, one of the rounds ‘completely shattered’ his femur, which will require multiple surgeries to repair.

Go Fund Me

Mr. Thallas and his family have started a GoFundMe to support creating a dog park. As of Thursday afternoon, it had already raised around $10,000. He believes the neighborhood where his daughter was killed is in need of such a place given how many dog owners live nearby and don’t have many options. He hopes the apartment complexes and RTD will work with the family to make this park become a reality.

“We’re going to try and push this thing through the best as we can and help rebuild a community that was hurt and shattered over such a senseless act.”


The suspect, Michael Close, 36, is facing a first-degree murder charge as well as an aggravated assault charge.


Mr. Thallas says the thought of a park, her memorial, and stories about his daughter all capture the same piece of Isabella’s character. A part of her he wants everyone to celebrate.

“We thought it would just be absolutely amazing to set up a park here,” Josh Thallas, her father said. “Where people could come and have some comradery and bring their animals, too and share some friendship with one another.”

The memorial has become a place of comfort for the family as they grieve but also a way to celebrate Isabella’s life and see the impact she had on the community. It could be a model for the type of park they want to create in her memory. A vigil on Thursday night was an incredible show of support for the family.

“As a dad, it’s beyond powerful,” Mr. Thallas told CBS4 on Friday. “You stand up and look around there are hundreds upon hundreds of young human beings out there, it’s amazing.”
