THE STORY:

My son Jovany Cortes was a wrestler at Belle Chasse High School in LA. He loved God, life, friends, and family. He had a bright future ahead of him as he was able to meet all of his goals. He worked hard to meet any dealines and was never afraid to ask for assistance. Jovany contracted a Staph infection that took his life on 9 Feb 2017. I am proud of all of his accomplishments, but I am mostly proud of is that my son had a kind heart and tried his best to be a service to others. Jovany told me once that he wanted to bring food to the downtown New Orleans homeless people. He didn't have that opportunity. Therefore, I am competing at the Miami half Ironman to donate all of the proceeds to charity in Southern LA. From the Cortes family, we want to thank all of you that donate and help us keep our son's memory alive.
