Remembering Elliot Blair

Donation protected

On January 14, 2023, Elliot Blair and his wife, Kim, were in Rosarito, Mexico, celebrating their one year wedding anniversary when Elliot was tragically killed. We wish we could provide everyone with more information, but very limited information has been disclosed by authorities in Mexico. He was the victim of a brutal crime. His family is working with US Officials to gain more information.

Elliot and Kim have been dedicated Public Defenders in Orange County, CA since 2017. Elliot was a compassionate lawyer who dedicated his life to serving indigent clients. Elliot was known as a patient and caring advocate. He was the best of us and was loved by countless members of our office and the Orange County legal community. We are heartbroken.

Elliot was known for a smile on his face and a clever mind. There are not enough words to express the level of love he had for Kim. Kim was his life. They just started building a life together in their first year of marriage. Elliot was killed on their one year wedding anniversary. Kim's heart is shattered.

Elliot is survived by his beautiful loving wife, Kim, his mom, Stella Blair, his sister, Candace Chavez-Wilson, his nephew Samuel, and all of his dear friends and loved ones. We take solace in the fact that Elliot is now with his father, Tom, who passed away two years ago. Elliot and Tom were thick as thieves; They spent countless hours together in the garage working on cars, dirt bikes, and dune buggies.

We are raising funds to help Kim with the cumbersome process involved in transporting Elliot's body from Mexico to the USA and dealing with all the red tape.

I am Kim and Elliot’s friend and colleague. Elliot was like my little brother. All donated funds will be used by Kim and Elliot’s family in their search for answers and to help Kim with any personal finances as she grieves her Elliot. All funds will be directly transferred to Kim.

This is the only Gofundme approved by and in support of Elliot’s family.
