Cuando un amigo se va – In Memoriam of Louis Pagan

Louis Pagan at the first LATISM Conference in 2009, New York City.

We are deeply saddened to have learned that our friend Louis Pagan has passed away.

Louis was the fifth member to join LATISM and immediately took a leadership role as part of our first Board of Directors. His life was taken away from us too soon and it is hard to understand why; it is a question without an answer. But instead of dwelling on this unexpected loss, we’d like to honor his life and remember all of the remarkable things he was able to accomplish. Louis was a true pioneer, in fact, his blog was one of the first and best ones in the Latino online space. He was a relentless explorer, always in search of the ultimate truth. In doing so, he became an innovator who inspired and mentored many of us.

Our deepest condolences go to his wife Yolanda and two young daughers to whom he devoted every minute of his life. Thank you, Louis, for leading the social media space in our community. LATISM will miss you, hermano. Descansa en paz.

~Ana, Elianne and the LATISM Board
