Loved Ones Remember Bronx Community Activist Ramon Jiminez

Friends and family said one final goodbye to longtime Bronx community activist and lawyer Ramon Jimenez.

A funeral service for Jimenez was held in Parkchester Saturday.

The Brooklyn-born Harvard graduate represented low-income families, injured workers and community groups throughout his career.

Those who knew him say he was a visionary.

"Using his knowledge of law and the rights of citizens and residents not for his own good or his own career but always for the community," said one.

"He made a difference nationally in the Bronx, but he made a difference nationally. He was one of those people who spoke for those who couldn't speak for themselves."

Jimenez ran for state Attorney General in 2010 and 2014

He was 68-years-old.
