68, died from heart failure during medical transport after a fall resulting in a broken hip.

Jose was born in San Jose, Costa Rica and came to the United States in 1980 on an educational visa, attending the University of Wisconsin. In 1986 after a few years in Boulder and Taos, the ever-cosmic traveler arrived in aspen.

Jose was a charismatic force of energy that blew into Aspen, where he became a fixture in the town’s restaurant industry. Being fluent in both Spanish and English, he served as a valuable bridge between cultures, most notably during his employment at The Little Nell, The Gant, The Cantina and Red Onion.

A gentleman and a scholar, Jose was a proud American citizen. He loved being part of the Aspen community, and will be missed by many.
