Bus Operator Miguel Chumpitaz Loses Battle With the Virus

Brother Chumpitaz was born and raised in Lima, Peru.  He attended the  Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos to study economics before coming to the U.S.

TAS Vice President JP Patafio, who worked alongside him at Gleason, said: “Miguel was one of those people who always brightened up the room with a smile and a joke.  He worked hard and never complained, one of those members who others looked to for a little sunshine and he never disappointed.  He will be sorely missed.”

Local 100 President Tony Utano, added his condolences: “My heart goes out to Miguel’s family and the many, many friends he had at Gleason and across TA Surface.  May he rest in peace.”
