It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Carissa Hinz. While she was volunteering at a nearby community event Friday night, she was killed by a hit and run driver.

Our deepest heartfelt sympathies go out to her family and friends. She was an artistic soul with a generous heart, and was beloved by neighbors, customers and her co-workers.

Carissa had been a barista at Bridgeport Coffee for over a year. There are no words that can convey how her family and friends feel, but we want them to know that we were graced by her presence and we will always remember her with affection and love.

Anyone with any information about the events of last night is urged to call 312-745-4521, the Hit and Run Division of the Chicago Police Department.
