Former Texas TV Photographer German Cortez Cause of Death | Family and Friends are currently mourning the passing of their beloved one.
German Cortez died on July 12, 2020. He has photographer for Telemundo Houston KTMD, KEYE Austin, Lamar University athletics and KFDM 6 and FOX 4 Beaumont.
He was a graduate of Lamar University.
German became sick in mid-June, with a persistent cough that wasn’t getting better.
On Tuesday, June 30, 2020, German went to Memorial Hermann The Woodlands where he was diagnosed with pneumonia. He remained in the hospital until Friday, July 3, 2020. Doctors ran numerous tests throughout the next several days.
All tests for COVID-19 came back negative, but doctors told him at least one of his lungs was “deflated.” He was given medications and told to do breathing exercises.
Over the course of the next week, German attempted to return to normalcy, but his cough was persistent, as was his shallow breathing.
On Friday, July 10, 2020, just past 1230PM, German went back to Memorial Hermann The Woodlands to seek help. He died later that afternoon from complications due to pneumonia (not COVID-19). His parents are now dealing with the loss of their firstborn, their son.
A talented, bright gentleman who had so much in his future. His life was cut short, and now it’s up to the rest of us to honor his life, memory and legacy.
The Cortez family is hoping you can find it in your hearts to assist with funeral costs as they were not prepared for something like this. We hope you’ll be able to help give him the send off he deserves.
