Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- Jaime Coppel Corvera, 89, a visionary businessman from Mazatlán, ceased to exist this Tuesday. In social networks, among porteños, his death caused pain and a show of affection and solidarity for his surviving relatives.

Jaime Coppel Corvera is considered one of the men who not only devised, but also contributed, and pushed the progress of Mazatlán in the second half of the 20th century and by some considered one of the few survivors of those times.

Known for his charisma, his kindness to his employees, for being a promoter of culture, and an altruistic heart, Don Jaime was the owner of the La Siesta hotel in Olas Altas and a restaurant owner, in addition to being the owner of the textile factory located in Villa Unión, that is now in ruins, but that in the years of the Mexican Revolution was an important source of jobs in the south of the state.
