August | Tony Mazzilli

On Monday morning  July 26th, we all woke up carrying on with our regular routine; coffee, read the news, workout etc...

It was the first day on our summer vacation and we were heading up north to enjoy a few days off with friends.

In an instant, our world was turned upside down. The dreaded phone call from my frantic husband who wasn’t home and who received a call from our niece who was hysterical. He begged me to jump in the car and head to the Decarie expressway where apparently his brother Tony (who was like a brother to me) had lost consciousness while driving and crashed his car. I’ll spare you the details. He was gone.

The biggest ray of sunshine there was, the hardest working man I knew, my #1 fan, single father of two adored girls was gone. In the blink of an eye, our lives changed forever. It was like watching scenes out of a movie in slow motion…. How could this be? Still unbelievable to fathom. How? Why? He was gone.

He owned and wore every single JETELOVE item there was with such pride and he represented everything that the brand stands for.

Always encouraging, telling me what a great job I was doing, offering advice and support. He was our rock, our sound board, our sunshine, our everything, loved and admired by so many. He is gone.

Tony, this tribute is for you. Thank you for coming into my life and for shining so bright.

Aurevoir mon beau Tony.
