. . . May Jesse Rodriguez Rest in Peace ! . . .
1-3-19. It now appears that CDOT will not recognize the death of Jesse Rodriguez as an on-street cycling fatality for 2018 in the official city records. CDOT is ruling he was a pedestrian at the time of his death because he was not in motion cycling when the driver of the vehicle ended his life by crashing into him.
Jessie Rodriguez, 67. R.I.P. +
Our thoughts and our prayers are with the family and friends of the fallen cyclist.
