C.E. Computer has been in business for 10 years in Shoreline

Chris Esponda, owner of the C.E. Computer Repair at 20001 Aurora Ave N Suite E, Shoreline, WA 98133 across from Aurora Village, has closed his shop while he recovers from brain injuries suffered in a horrific attack on December 30, 2022.

He was just leaving his shop after hours when he was attacked by a mugger who apparently was looking for money to buy drugs at a nearby cannabis shop.

The mugger, screaming racial slurs, attacked him repeatedly, so violently that Chris has a brain bleed, seizures, and might need surgery for internal injuries. He has moved in with family while he recovers.

Chris asks for patience while he contacts
clients with devices in the shop.
I’m so very grateful for your business and support these past ten years as I built C.E. Computer Repair from the ground up, and I look forward to providing you again with computer repair services as soon as I am able. 
Unfortunately, however, it looks like that could be at least several months or longer. I thank you so much for your patience as I reach out to those of you with devices currently in the shop being repaired. 
For those who have asked how you can offer support, thank you from the bottom of my heart. My community has started a GoFundMe to help with my recovery and I’m grateful to anyone who is able to contribute or share around:

Chris is a very nice guy and his family are really good people. He did not deserve this. I'm not always a fan of our legal system but a fair way to fund Chris' recovery might be suing the "attractive nuisance" cannabis shop right behind his place of business. Since that shop went in, there's been an increase in the amount of loitering in Chris' parking lot by middle aged homeless who often display signs of mental health struggles.

Prayers and funds going out to you, Chris, for a complete recovery.
