Chris Allen Koseff Obituary
Chris Allen Koseff, a life-long resident of La Mirada and close environs passed peacefully Saturday, March 17, 2018, surrounded by loved ones after a month-long struggle to overcome trauma inflicted in a car vs. pedestrian accident in Orange, California. Born March 19, 1962, Chris is the fourth child of Carl and Virginia Koseff, 50-year residents of La Mirada, who preceded him in death.

Chris leaves behind his cherished son, Christopher Jackson Koseff, a devoted partner, Paula Jean Smith, five siblings: Carla (Gary) Rago and Christianne (Richard) Pittenger all of Huntington Beach, Catherine Douglas (Michael (Deceased) of San Rafael, Craig Koseff of Ontario, Carolyn Koseff of Marbella, Spain, his loving nieces Mikaila and Makenzie Pittenger, adoring dogs Sunny and Duke, and Turtle, his desert tortoise.

Chris attended Neff High School and maintained abiding friendships with classmates throughout his life. Chris was the consummate car salesman at various automobile agencies throughout the LA and OC region, and founded his own dealership, CJacks Auto Sales in Orange in 2013. A successful and reputable corporation he named for and leaves to his beloved son, Jackson, CJacks Auto Sales was the opportunity Chris seized to be close to and to teach his son the art of the deal, the mechanics of business and the joys of an honest day's work with trusted colleagues and satisfied clients.

Chris had recently purchased a beautiful home in Corona and was looking forward to many more years of living the good life with family, friends and colleagues when he was struck by a vehicle while crossing the road in Orange on February 20. The family wishes to thank the life-saving trauma team, amazing surgeons, and compassionate S-ICU nurses at UC Irvine Medical Center who valiantly worked with Chris to help him recover from insurmountable injuries over the past month.

A funeral Mass will be held April 6, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Paul of the Cross Catholic Church, 14020 Foster Rd, La Mirada, CA 90638. Burial services will follow at Olive Lawn Cemetery in La Mirada.
