ComEd worker electrocuted By Rhonda Sciarra Daily Herald Staff Writer December 29, 2002 ComEd officials said Saturday they are investigating the death of an Addison father of four who was electrocuted Friday while working on power lines in Schiller Park. Jorge Mijares, 42, was pronounced dead at a Melrose Park hospital 40 minutes after the 10 a.m. "freak accident" in the 4000 block of Scott Avenue, Schiller Park police Sgt. Tom Belpedio and ComEd spokesman Tim Lindberg said. Mijares, an 18-year employee with ComEd, was in a cherry picker that came in contact with a live power line, they said. A hole was burned through the cherry picker basket that had lifted Mijares and another worker to the power lines, Belpedio said. "From what I understand 35,000 volts of electricity went right through him," he said. The Cook County medical examiner's office ruled the death accidental and caused by electrocution after an autopsy Saturday. The second employee, James Bowdry, 41, of Maywood, was treated for minor burns. ComEd is looking into the incident. "Exactly what happened up there is still under investigation," Lindberg said. Meanwhile, family and friends of Mijares, of the 200 block of North Friars Court, cannot fathom what happened. "I know my husband would not make a mistake," said wife Fran. "He was the head of a safety committee at ComEd and knew what he was doing." The couple had been married for 15 years and had four children ranging in ages from 9 to 14, she said. Jorge Mijares coached his children and their sports teams with the Addison Rec Club and Pop Warner football for about eight years. "He was the best father and a family man," his wife said. "He was the gentlest, kindest man. Words can't express how we are going to miss him." Chuck Fossen, who has coached and vacationed alongside Mijares for years, said his friend was great with children. "I have never heard anyone say a bad word about him," Fossen said. "He was big, jovial and always cracking jokes." ComEd is providing counseling services to employees who worked with Mijares and said accidents like Friday's are rare, Lindberg said. "This is a tragedy in the ComEd family," he said. "Our sympathy and prayers go out to his family." A wake for Mijares will be held from 3 to 9 p.m. Monday at Humes Funeral Home, 320 W. Lake St. in Addison, his wife said. Services begin at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church at 1213 Army Trail Blvd. in Addison. Burial will be at Eden Memorial Park in Schiller Park.
