Ode To Jeff When I think of Jeff, I see his smile So ready, so frequent, so without guile His willingness to help, to go the extra mile Was part of his core, part of his style He loved a party and the camaraderie we shared And to each event he came prepared With drinks and food - good things paired We always knew how much he cared We had such fun at Karaoke nights He'd grab the mic - "It's my turn, right?" Then sing his song with pure delight Swaying in time and flashing pearly whites Jeff left us too soon, his parting too swift We're trying to cope, but we're adrift Our memories give comfort, they're a gift When I think of his smile, my spirits lift Rest easy, my friend. We'll miss you.

I'm so sorry for Kay and David's loss. It was so sudden and unexpected. Jeff was loved by many, as was witnessed at his memorial. We shared fun stories of Jeff and how he positively affected many of us. He and I worked in the same building for about 10 years and we would see each other in the halls and outside of work. He would always have something funny to say. He loved to laugh and tried hard to put a positive spin on tough situations. I'm going to miss him dearly.

What a loss! I am sad to hear the news, but comforted by all the fond memories of Jeff and how he made this world a better place. We are all fortunate to have known him. He made our journey more pleasant, brought us happiness and brightened our days. Jeff will be missed by many.

My heart goes out to you my dear friend Kay, over the lost of your son Jeffrey. I remember the boys when they were very little, David and Jeffrey you talked about them all the time at work and shared lots of pictures of both boys. I will pray for you and David that your pain will pass and only the good memories of Jeffrey will remain. We will always be dear friends because we are connected with love. Love you, Anna.

I am still trying process this tremendous loss. I have known and worked with Jeff from 2001. I have so many good memories of him. He lit up a room with his smile, style, charisma and sense of humor. So many times we shared funny moments, and shared stories and experiences. He always wanted to know how my kids and family were. I will miss the walk by's he would make to my desk and vice versa. Whenever I needed a break from what was going around me, he was always there to offer a funny joke or humor that would make me cope! So many times, so many belly laughs! He spoke so sweetly of his mother and brother. I always loved hearing about his holidays with his mother down south. It would warm my heart to see the balloons, gifts and flower boquets sent from his family on holiday, birthdays and just because. He knew he was loved! Since our jobs changed with the merger, I haven't seen him as often as I used to. We were working on meeting up soon. How I wish that happened. I will always hold his memory close to my heart. He had a huge heart, was so compassionate and real. Rest in Paradise my friend! Till I see you again. Love you!

I am heartbroken to hear of Jeff's passing. He was truly a one of a kind human being. I will especially remember his infectious smile and laugh, his kind spirit and emphatic nature. Jeff and I worked together at PacMed from 2010-2017 and then were coworkers at Providence after that. During that time we made many memories. We worked together on countless projects and issues, and also enjoyed a trip to Madison, WI for Epic's User Group Meeting together. I will treasure those memories for the rest of my life. Love You, JLo. You can rest easy now.

I had the pleasure of working with Jeff at PacMed. He had SO much energy when he entered a room and the perfect exit every time! He cared so much about his friends. I will never forget when he came to my work baby shower, wearing the same blue polo and khaki pants that he had purchased for my soon to be baby boy, he had good taste, to say the least. When we would run into each other at work he always wanted to see pictures of my babies, he truly cared. He will be missed by so many. I guess we'll enjoy those margaritas on the patio in our next life.

I knew Jeff from PacMed and through our transition to Swedish and Providence. He was always striving to learn and grow in those roles, and was generous in helping me do the same. Jeff had an easy sense of humor, and used it to endear himself to his colleagues--who more often than not became friends. I will miss him.

I feel like I was lucky enough to hang out with you the most at PacMed, we were going out to lunch almost everyday for awhile. We always knew what was going on in each others lives. I'm sad that we both moved on from PacMed, and wish we could have kept in touch these past few years. I miss you Jeff.

I was so shocked to hear of Jeff's passing. I worked closely with Jeff for years at PacMed, and I can honestly say he touched the hearts of anyone he encountered. Jeff had charisma! Always smiling and joking, his energy lit up any room he entered. His presence will be sincerely missed?

I heard about Jeff’s passing yesterday and felt the need to find his obituary. I knew Jeff from working with him at pacmed. Where do I even begin...Jeff was the funniest person I have ever known. His expressions were infectiously hilarious and his laughter was contagious. He put a smile on everyone’s face he ever met. Some of the funniest sayings he said will stay with me forever. What a huge loss for his family and friends. My prayers definitely go out to his family in this tragic loss. May you find peace and comfort knowing he is in gods arms now. May he have eternal peace and comfort and may his precious life, while way too short and so unexpected, have meaning and purpose. Jeff......you truly will be missed, but the joy you gave to each and everyone that ever got to meet you will always be a treasure and gift that you gave us all. Until we meet again my dear friend

I wish I could have met Jeff, but from all the wonderful stories my dear friend Kay has shared with me over the years, he was a very special guy. Certainly loved his mother and brought her tremendous joy in life. We are thinking of you at this very sad time and sending you love to carry you through the most difficult days. There's no way around grief, only through it. May God hold you close in his embrace my dear friend.

I never knew Jeff well,having met him only once while visiting Kay and Aunt Ginny in California in 1992. From what I know hearing Kay speak of him and reading what others write; I can tell that Jeff was a wonderful, loving son with an engaging, sparkling personality. He will be greatly missed by Kay, David, and all who knew him, but will live on in their hearts forever. Kay, thinking of you with love. Kathy

Kay may your family always walk in the sunshine and light of Jeff's beautiful, endearing smile. His enlightening spirit here with us was just a forecast to him getting his (" well earned, well lived and enjoyed life of joy") Angel Wings. May his Wings always rest right beside your families doors and continue to cover all of you with his bright reassuring light. ...

Kay, I know that Jeff was very special to you and that you and David will miss him terribly. And I'm sure that he will be missed by many friends and co-workers. They will miss his big smile every single day when they go to the office, and that wonderful person with the big smile will not be there. There will come a time when you will be able to think of all the wonderful times you shared with him and also know that God will be taking very good care of him. Know that you and David are held in my prayers. June

Although I never met Jeff, I know he must have been a wonderful man who loved his mother so much. He never forgot his mom and she often spoke of him. That smile says it all. A kind, caring, and loving man. God Bless him and hold him in his arms. Give his mother the grace to accept this tragedy and to only remember the good times they spent together.

Jeffery Lopez. Where does one begin? What does one say about such a special young man that left this world and his family way too soon? No one can think of Jeff without smiling. Not only did Jeff have a great smile but he also brought smiles to everyone around him. He was, in fact, quite the character! He was so funny and a storyteller with all the animation and expressions to make each story come to life! Each year when he would spend Christmas with his mother, Kay, I would get to chat with him on the phone and what a special Santa treat that was for me. Boy, did Jeff make me laugh and it was never one of those polite chuckles but, rather, one of those hard belly laughs. Bringing joy and laughter to others was God's gift to Jeff and thank God he shared that gift with everyone that knew him....thank you Jeff for sharing some of your gift with me. In loving memory, Ann
