Jesse Linares, the city editor of Hoy Los Angeles, died on Saturday at Kaiser Permanente in Baldwin Park. He had suffered from cancer. Linares, from El Salvador, studied journalism and political science at Cal State Northridge and worked at La Opinión as a reporter and editor before moving to Hoy eight years ago. Both Spanish-language papers posted obituary stories (Hoy, LO), as did Baldwin Park Patch and Latino California.
Noted: Friends and colleagues will gather on Saturday between 1 and 5 p.m. at Fern Dell in Griffith Park to raise funds for Linares' family. He is survived by his wife, journalist Victoria Infante, and their one-year-old son. The gathering is being put together by the Association of Latino Journalists in California.
