About Dominic Vasquez written by his sister:
My brother Dominic, or Dom for those of us who know him well, is 28 years old. Before late march of 2020, Dom lived his life in an extremely athletic manner. He was at the gym every day, sometimes even multiple times a day. He prioritized his fitness because he wanted to stay healthy, and because his job as a law enforcement officer requires a high level of fitness. Staying fit and healthy could literally be the difference between life and death in his profession. This was an important aspect of his life. Another thing that Dom has always prioritized is family, he has always been better at this than me. He is quite literally the definition of a family man. When he wasn’t spending time with family, he was with good and loyal friends.
Most of those friends being law enforcement buddies, but also a few really good childhood friends too. Dom was extremely social and loved to be around friends and family. He has always been very protective of us and would literally do anything for the people that he loves. I will also say that my brother has been through a lot over the last 3-4 years. He has seen the worst of people through his job. He has been shot at, been in a dangerous vehicle pursuit that ended in a crash, and has witnessed many things that no one should ever have to as a police officer. March of 2020 brought him and our family another traumatic incident to add to the list. Dom is older than me by about 5 years. However, I often assume the caretaker role with him (and everyone else in my life). This is exactly what happened when he contracted COVID-19 in late March of 2020. At this time, I was working in EMS for an ambulance company out in Salt Lake City. COVID was new to the U.S. and we didn’t know much about it. I was starting to get patients on my ambulance who were positive for the virus, but were stable. That week, my brother had told me he thought he had the virus because he felt the sickest he had ever felt before. He told me that he didn’t know how to explain what it felt like, the closest thing he could relate it to was “a really bad flu.”
