Larry was my family dentist. In addition, of being my dentist he was a fellow pilot, who loved aviation. I met Larry while we were at aviation seminar. He built same homebuilt Glasair aircraft as mine. No matter when I called Larry, he would always have time to talk and give advice. So long Larry God Bless You and Your Family! Have A Safe Journey My Friend you will be missed by me and many others who knew you.

Larry had a brilliant mind and a big heart. I know he and his brother Gary made his Uncle Pete, my father, very happy when they decided to go to dental school. As was the case with my father, Larry's and Gary's patients were more than patients, they were part of a large, extended family. My condolences go out to Donna, Michael and Kathryn as well as to Gary and Maureen, and Jeff and Marianne and their families. There was so much more living and loving yet to be enjoyed. Larry will be sorely missed.

To the family and staff of his offices, our sympathy and condolences. I've been a patient for many years and my respect for him as a dentist and as a person is massive. I am deeply saddened by his loss, as I'm sure everyone else that knew him is. He was so caring about people and his patients and always showed an interest in what was going on in their lives. He will be missed.
Bless you Dr. Larry

When Larry & Gary started their dental practice Eleanor & I flipped a coin to see which would be our dentist. Eleanor won Gary and I won Larry. For the past 40 plus years Larry has always been there for me for a dental problem or something else. he was a super dentist and a wonderful and caring human being. Larry, you will be missed.

Larry always took a group photo at our annual cousins' reunion and sent me a copy in their Christmas card (since I rarely attended). I remember when he and Gary talked to their Uncle Pete (my dad) about going into dentistry. So glad that they pursued it as their career because they served so many people. Before Larry lived on Campbell Ave., he and Gary and their parents Ed and Luddy, lived in a tiny upstairs apartment at Grandma's house on Scott Ave. His brother Gary got the name "Scooter" when he discovered that he could scoot backwards on the smooth vinyl floor a lot faster that he could crawl forward (as I remember it). My heartfelt condolences to all the family.

I am truly heartbroken to hear of this terrible tragedy. I started going to Dr. Larry in 2016 after my previous dentist retired and it was the best decision I've ever made. My fear of going to the dentist, surprisingly disappeared and became something I actually looked forward to, thanks to Dr. Larry and his wonderful and welcoming staff. He was a terrific dentist and friend and always made me feel welcome and at ease as well as his associates. My heartfelt condolences to his family and staff at Jagmin Dental. You have my deepest sympathy.

Our deepest condolences to the entire Jagmin family, Dr. Gary Jagmin, Dr. Eun Jin Lee, and the dedicated and wonderful staff at Jagmin Dental Clinic. We have been patients of the Jagmin family of dentists all the way back to the time when their beloved uncle worked from a small practice in his home. Always the most intelligent, skilled, and caring dentists you could ever find. Dr. Larry was a treasure to the patients and communities he served. He always took the time to do his very best and treated each person as family. His incredible spirit of adventure, joyous laugh and compassionate service will always be held in our memory.

Our sincere condolences to the Staff at Jagmin Dental and to the Family of Dr. Larry Jagmin.
Throughout the years, we have trusted our entire family, and now our grandchildren's teeth to his care. We have been his loyal patients for over 43 years, beginning in Sauk Village. He was an AWESOME dentist and a very nice man. Dr. Larry would never miss an opportunity while checking my husband's teeth, to discuss flying, the EAA Club, who is or isn't hanging out at the airport anymore, etc. They both had a love of airplanes, motorcycles, and flying. He will be missed. R.I.P Doc...Fly high.

Dear Jagmin Family, Our deepest condolences go out to you at this sad time. Dr. Larry was much more than our family dentist. Being from Chicago Heights when asked who are dentist was, everyones answer was Dr. Jagmin. He was a professional, considerate person who always had something interesting to talk about. We enjoyed our conversations on politics, music, and more. He went out of his way with his many kindness's to our family on so many occasions. He will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him. Dear Doctor, Rest in Peace. The Saviano Family

My name is Sue Fitzgerald. I’ve been a patient of Dr Larry’s since 1980. He was the absolutely the best dentist EVER! He was always there when I needed him. I moved to The Villages, Fl in 2006 and flew back every year to have my dentristy done. Two weeks before my 50th wedding anniversary I broke a tooth. I flew back to him cause I didn’t trust anyone else with my teeth. He came in on his day off and spent a long time fixing my problem.
I don’t know of any other dentist that would do this. He truly truly cared about all his patients. A couple of months ago I had a problem with a dentist here in Fl so I sent Dr Larry the exrays and reports to him for advice and his opinion. He called me while he was on vacation walking on the beach just to help me. What a man! What a man!
There are many more examples, but you get the idea.
My sympathy goes out to his family and the girls that worked for him.
One more thing, once a year he took his staff on vacation. I know one time they went to Las Vegas. He always gave everyone his ALL. Bless him.

Oh my.....the most brilliant neighbor boy. Larry was always in the garage working on “something” with Scooter close behind, and as Jeff got older, right there also. Mr. Jagmin was his guide on the side, but Larry did pretty good on his own. We kids would go to him anytime something broke, we knew he could fix it, he understood things we had no idea about. My dad, Tito Tarquinio, had such respect for Larry’s ability that he would have that young boy come next door if we had a mechanical problem; Larry could fix most everything....he could troubleshoot anything and get it working. Campbell Avenue weeps tonight....
My deepest sympathy to the Jagmin family....RIP Larry...Mary Tarquinio Larsen

Oh my....the brilliant boy from Campbell Avenue! Anything we kids needed fixed, we’d take it to Larry; he was far ahead of the rest of us in understanding “how things worked.” Anytime my father, Tito Tarquinio, had a mechanical issue, he would have that young Larry come over. Larry was always in the garage “working” on a project....and his dad was his guide on the side. Scooter wasn’t far behind, and although a bit younger, Jeff was right there, too. Campbell Avenue weeps tonight. My deepest sympathy to all the Jagmin’s.
Rest In Peace Larry.....Mary Tarquinio Larsen
