Kansas City, MO – The impact of the death of community leader Rebecca Jaramillo will be felt in many Kansas City lives. Becky Jaramillo was born and raised in Parsons Kansas. She moved to Kansas City, became a writer and editor for the bilingual newspaper Dos Mundos, and a board member for the Guadalupe Centers. Jaramillo was a consistent advocate for the area's Latino community, and helped found the Fiesta Hispana. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross spoke with her husband of 44 years, Joe Jaramillo.
