Passed away on May 12, 2018. Today we celebrate Jose "Pepe' Ellauri, for though his life has ended, the spark of life he awakened in us lives on. Jose immigrated from Uruguay 52 years ago. On a blind-date in Washington, DC in 1969 he met the love of his life Amanda. They married had two wonderful children Gabriella and Cristian and now have three precious granddaughters Samantha, Miranda and Arden, two rad step-grandchildren Tyler and Katelyn, and an amazing step-son, Steve. Jose was rich with the gifts of poetic wit and satirical wisdom. His 28 year design career at the IADB, enabled his keen eye for detail and warm smile for making you feel at ease. We have lost a great man today, let us remember him together.
