Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jim Dwyer has died at the age of 63 of complications of lung cancer. Dwyer covered the New York City area for The New York Times, Newsday and the Daily News. He wrote about the human lives affected by the September 11 attacks and covered racial profiling by New Jersey state troopers, leading to the indictment of two officers who shot Black and Latinx students. He also covered the Central Park Five trial in 1990. In his final months, he told the stories of New Yorkers affected by the pandemic and the frontline doctors battling the disease. In his last column for The New York Times in May, Dwyer wrote about those who feed and care for those in need. He wrote, “In times to come, when we are all gone, people not yet born will walk in the sunshine of their own days because of what women and men did at this hour to feed the sick, to heal and to comfort.” Those are the words of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Jim Dwyer, who died last week at the age of 63.
