Emilio Veliz Memorial

Through all of the craziness of this epidemic, we need to take pause and think about people and the human factor.

We just lost one of our superstars, Emilio Veliz, to cardiac arrest.  Emilio has been working for us for the last five years at Otto Enoteca e Pizzeria. He was a wonderful employee, man, father, husband and friend.  He has served many of you at Otto.  He always delivered excellent hospitality, and afterwards, you left with a smile on your face because of him and his kind spirit.

Emilio was husband to Eva, and superdad to six beautiful children, Ivette 14,  Angel 13,  Delialah 10,  Audrey 9,  Aliayah (Jiggypuff) 8 and Abraham (Bambam) 6.  He was a family man through and through.

If you are able to help his family out, please feel free to donate here.  Otto has donated $15,000 as a separate donation to Emilio's Family.

We are sending warm thoughts, prayers and love to the Veliz family.
