Help LAFD FirefighterJose M. Perez & Family

49956028_1595804603435826_r.jpegThis fundraiser is for the Perez Family who had the unexpected passing of Jose M. Perez. Jose M. Perez leaves behind his wife Heidi and his children Adrian(14), Caylie (8) and Jayce (3).  Jose M. Perez was a firefighter/paramedic for the City of Los Angeles who contracted COVID-19 while treating and caring for the citizens of Los Angeles. Jose was notified Friday July 10, 2020 that he had contracted COVID-19, he continued to fight until the very end until his passing on Saturday July 25, 2020. Jose M. Perez affectionately known as "Joser" or "Dr. Phil" leaves a irreplaceable presence with not only the people who worked with him, but the citizens who he treated and helped.  It was not uncommon that he would spend his own personal money to buy medications for people who were less fortunate and cannot afford them, often he was found not only providing excellent medical care but offering a shoulder to lean on to anyone who needed it. He was a prodigious firefighter who worked tirelessly to always become better. He dedicated his life to helping others.  His generosity and  compassion for people will be deeply missed. The funds will go to his wife and children to assist them with present and future expenses the family will incur. Thank you everyone for your donation.
