ASPIRA of Florida Family Mourns Loss of Beloved CEO

Raul A. Martinez, President and CEO of ASPIRA of Florida, Inc., passed away Sunday night, May 30th, 11:25 pm, at Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Florida. His family and close friends were at his bedside as Raul ended a yearlong struggle with cancer.

Raul_with_ASPIRANTESRaul began his career at ASPIRA as a gang intervention counselor in 1986 and gradually developed into the prominent CEO who led our expansion from a small office in the Wynwood area of Miami, to a sophisticated operation that includes leadership development offices in Miami, Broward and Palm Beach County, three middle Charter Schools and an Adult Night School in Miami-Dade County, and corporate offices in the Miami Design District. He recently implemented a plan to expand into Central Florida.

The Staff and Board members are deeply saddened with his passing and will miss his leadership, charisma, and subtle sense of humor that permeated throughout the organization as he touched those who worked with him and the children he so deeply loved and served. Plans are to institute a scholarship fund in his memory.

We hold him and his family in our prayers. God bless our "hermanito" and number one ASPIRANTE.
