Jesus Alvarez is a 52-year-old married Veteran who served over 26 years in the military—starting with the Air Force for 3 years and the Army for 23 years. He continues to protect our country as a Department of Defense contractor.
Jesus has Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)—a genetic condition that has permanently damaged his kidneys. Many of his family members also have PKD and were therefore ineligible to be his kidney donor.
Jesus has dedicated his life to protecting our freedoms. On December 20, 2021, Jesus received a living donation from Amber Richardson, DOVE Donor #6.
