On Saturday morning, October 19, 2018 Ana Esquivel and her family received the devastating news that Alessandro's body was found on the beach of Isla Vista (Santa Barbara). He was starting his sophomore year up at UC Santa Barbara. 

He was a wonderfully loving and funny young man who had overcome many obstacles with his positive attitude.   

In high school, Alessandro went on to become part of the school paper (The Downey Legend for Downey High School) and was a co-editor/writer.  Under his staff description was the following caption, which is  truly exemplary of who he was and his attitude in life.

"Preparing himself for the upcoming school year, Alessandro Esquivel, 12, focuses on taking primarily AP classes in hopes of obtaining a better future. 'I’m not determined to pass, I am determined to excel,' Esquivel said. 'I hope that taking these rigorous classes will help me learn to manage responsibilities.'
Alessandro Esquivel , Co-Copy Editor"

Aless is survived by his father Carlos Esquivel, his mother Ana, and his sister Isabella.

Funeral details will be provided by his loving mother and family as soon as they become available, but for now, we would love to surround the family with love, as well as, emotional and financial support to lighten the load at this difficult time. 

If you can find it in your heart to make a donation, any amount will help and will be appreciated by the Esquivel family. If you can also share the link, that would be greatly appreciated.  

Blessings!
