I’m going to the funeral today for Carlos Hernandez Gomez, a former McCormick Tribune Fellow here at The Chicago Reporter who went on to do high quality work for public radio affiliate WBEZ and television CLTV.
He died earlier this week at age 36 after a yearlong fight with cancer.
I didn’t know Carlos real well, and have much respect for him and the work he did.
President Obama issued a statement about him, too.
He will be missed.
