Sadly, Chhapte Sherpa has passed away, according to the Russ and Daughters website.

He lived in JH at the time of his 2012 NY Times profile, but I'm not sure if he was still living here.

Thanks for the update. That's really sad - so young, too. I always loved that story in the Times after reading it in 2012 and still think of it from time to time. I actually just sent it to someone to read only a few months ago.

 So sad and he was still young. I have to ask if anyone knows the cause of death? possibly Covid 19?

What a sad but yet uplifting story.  To know/and yet not know, there are people like this among us.  Thank you for sharing his story.
