Commissioner Joe A. Martinez is Saddened on the Passing of Senior Commission Aide’s Wife

MIAMI – It is with deep sadness that I inform you of the passing of Mrs. Esther Martell (better known as Tessie to her family and friends), the wife of Arcadio Martell at the age of 81. Martell is the longest tenured and most trusted employee for Commissioner Joe A. Martinez. Tessie will always be remembered for her fighting spirit, the ability to find joy in the smallest of pleasures and being able to smile through any hardship.

A viewing and visitation will be held tomorrow:
