Fund for Cesar Martinez

Update from Cesar's cousin Argelia: On behalf of Cesar's parents, Karla, and family, we don't have words to express our sincere gratitude. We know how much Cesar was loved. The stories at his wake filled our hearts as we heard how he instantly left a lasting impression on others.  We captured several stories and will take them to his parents when we see them next week. The funds we collected will go towards Cesar's funeral service and to his family in Mexico.  Cesar's parents asked us to bring his ashes home.  My parents, sisters & brother-in-law will be preparing to bring him home to his parents on 11/23.  With immense gratitude, we thank you for your generous donations.

Dear Friends and Family,

It is with tremendous sadness that we annouce the sudden passing of our cousin Cesar Martinez. It happened on Sunday morning in Chicago. He was loved by so many as he formed beautiful friendships and family in Chicago over 17+ years. His family in Mexico City is completely heartbroken as they prepare to receive him back home. We are blessed to receive an outpouring of support by his friends. Therefore, we set up this page for Cesar as we prepare his services and find ways to support his family in Mexico City. We welcome any donation. Details about the services will be shared on Tuesday. Thank you for helping us commemorate him.

Queridos amigos y familia,

Es con tremenda tristeza que anunciamos el repentino fallecimiento de nuestro primo, Cesar Martinez. Sucedió el domingo por la mañana en Chicago. Fue amado por tantos por que formo hermosas amistades y familia en Chicago durante sus 17+ años en este país. Su familia en la Ciudad de México está completamente desconsolada. Tiene muchos años que se fue de su casa para buscar una vida mejor en Chicago y no estaban preparados para recibirlo en casa de esta manera. Tenemos la bendición de recibir una gran cantidad de apoyo por parte de sus amigos y familia en Mexico. Agradeceríamos sus generosas donaciones para sus servicios y para apoyar a su familia en México. Los detalles sobre los servicios serán compartidos el martes. Gracias por ayudarnos a conmemorarlo.
