Dear Olga, my sincerest and deepest condolences to you and your entire family. Jose and I shared some great and yes crazy times at U.T.C. He was one of a kind and I will always be proud he was my friend.

My lil buddy…..I enjoyed working with you side by side for 8 yrs. Enjoyed our lunches & laugh. I will miss you much!!! Rest in Paradise my friend xoxoxoxo
No words to express my sorrow of his passing. I have not seen jose in years but we had many wonderful times together and I will never forget him. I was in complete shock to see this news.
I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. He was a great friend to me when he worked at Mnemonics and I always looked forward to his emails so we could catch up. I will never forget him or his stories about his Dad. Or the time I was lost in Cape Canaveral and called him for directions and he sent me to the parking lot of the local strip club instead of the restaurant I was looking for.
Jose was a very special extraordinary person, friend and neighbor who would do anything you asked of him. I along with many others will miss his kind sprit. We will never forget his great smile.
Jose was a good neighbor and friend at our cocoa beach Harbor Isles. So sorry to hear about his passing. So many memories, he will be missed
