Washington Post: José Alberto Ortiz Chevez Jr., who loved his family and cooking, dies of covid-19. “Those who knew Chevez well say his affinity for the city was only superseded by the love he had for his family. When he finally felt ready in June to move into his own apartment — in the District’s Manor Park neighborhood — Chevez, then 30, still called his mother every day, to say good morning, be careful and ‘I love you.’ It was a tradition he carried on until he was physically unable to continue. Chevez was intubated in late December, just over a week after he tested positive for the coronavirus. Covid-19 had decimated his lungs, and a doctor told his family that it was among the most aggressive cases they’d seen.”
