It is with heavy hearts we announce the death of our dear friend and co-worker Maria Hernandez. Maria was the heart and soul of Cabrillo’s Resident & Community Services Department, where she served as a community building manager. This title did little to describe who she really was, though.
In the words of HomeOwnership Center Director Omar Madrigal, “She was a rock star. Everywhere she went people followed her around. All the residents loved her.”
Her compassion, big heart and desire to make people’s lives better are the traits that shone brightest. It is that, and her radiant smile, that will forever be remembered.
