I just learned about this loss today. I met Jose when I was with EY in Mexico City. I met him for the first time in 1999 or 2000, he was our mentor and helped build the EY Information Security practice in Mexico that became one of the most admired and respected in that country.

I left EY in 2012 to move to Toronto, Canada and called to Jose to announce my decision, his message to me was conforting and encouraging. He was a remarkable leader. Today, I am sending Christmas notes to my friends and that includes my EY family. For a strange reason, when thinking of Jose to send a note, I Googled his name and found this. I was, I am schocked. I will always remember him with respect, appreciation and love.

Jose was the rarest of human beings: a giver in time of need, a light in the darkness, a motivator, a peacemaker and a confidant. For most of his career, he worked in a highly competitive, sometimes aggressive environment, yet, Jose never seemed to be effected by or in any way involved in tangental firm politics. He was both loved and respected by all; very difficult in our world I know this because we were both Partners at E&Y. He was also one of my closest friends. I believed that this friendship would last a lifetime, but I, like all those whose hearts he touched, are impelled to cherish the memories of the many great and memorable times we had together.

I met Jose when I joined EY several years ago and he was the friendliest, most wonderful person! We shared a passion for photography and he was the first to offer help whenever I need something in the Cyber Security space. My sincere condolences to your family. Rest in peace, Jose. God bless.

It is said that the great ones make all those around them better. Jose was a great one. His positive influence on so many of us speaks volumes for his selflessness and the value of his counsel. Laurie, AJ and the Granado family, I am so sorry for your loss. I will miss him but I am thankful to have worked for him, for the many happy memories we shared and the opportunity to build on his legacy.

Jose will be deeply missed. I had the great fortune of working with Jose for many years. More important than his technical acumen and tremendous work ethic, was Jose's commitment to his family - both his personal family and his work family. He was a passionate and caring man who selflessly committed himself to the success and achievements of others. There are few people who truly care for others as much as Jose. He leaves a lasting legacy and will be remembered by many of for years to come. My condolences to his family and friends.

On behalf of the Nemia family we would like to express our deepest condolences on the loss of Jose. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time. Through the years, Jose and I would talk about three things; his love for his family, his love of the New York Yankees and the New York Rangers and his passion for cyber security and his vision for it within EY. He was a great friend and a role model for all that knew him. I will miss his laugh and his perspective on life. He will be missed, but his legacy will live on in all those he touched. May God watch over his family as we will keep them and Jose in our prayers.

I first met Jose when we were starting our computer forensics practice back in the late 90s. We had a lot of work to do, but Jose always made sure we found time to enjoy each other and the experience, including being part of the exercise to give everyone on the team Star Wars nicknames. I recall another time someone made a graphic of a hurricane weather pattern with Jose's face in the midst as Hurricane Granado approached Houston. It was a great team.

But as much as he helped us each pursue our own dreams and goals and feel like we were part of a big family, it was always clear what drove him -- creating a better life for his wife and son. Which just made us love him even more.

Thank you for sharing him with us and please now know we all share in your grief at his far-too-soon passing. Many prayers to you and your family.

My thoughts & prayers are with Laurie Ann and Anthony, as well as Jose's extended family. Jose was such force in our firm. I remember well when the cyber security center was opened in our Houston office - how very proud I was of Jose's leadership and passion around the effort. He was so far ahead of our competitors and just so passionate about the subject. I loved his positive attitude and drive for our firm. Jose will be missed but please know that he made a very big difference in our firm.

During the time Jose and I worked together, he taught me that you can learn to relate to a person through the books they read. At the time he was reading about baseball, photography, cybersecurity and most notably family.
Like many at EY, I will remember Jose fondly. It was an honor to call him boss and receive his leadership.
My sincere sympathies to the Granado family.

I worked with Jose back during his AFOSI days and although we had lost touch over the years, I was very sad to hear the news. I am truly sorry for your loss, Jose was indeed a good man taken way too soon. I never would've enjoy the last half of my AF career if it wasn't for his help.

My most sincere condolences to Jose's family. Jose was truly a one of a kind treasure in how he was extremely talented in cybersecurity, demonstrated a sincere interest in all people, and most of all, he valued his family above all else. Not one conversation went without bantering about his Yankees and my Red Sox - I can hear him laughing today. He left an impact on so many people and is a true loss. May God bless him now and continue to bless his family as Jose looks down on them from above.

Taken from us way too soon, Jose will be deeply missed by our entire family. His kind hearted friendship meant so much to us. While he encouraged others to strive for success and balance, he was humble in his own success. A man of integrety, we know his time here will continue to inspire lives that he touched. His love for his devoted family, his passion for his job, along with his enthusiasm for his beloved Yankees is how we will remember Jose. Praying for peace and comfort for Laurie and Anthony.

Laurie and AJ---There are not enough words that can adequately address the grief and sorrow for the loss of your loved one. I pray, however, that you will find some measure of solace; consolation knowing that God placed Jose in our family for a time. In that time, short as it may seem, was time at least, to know him, to love him, experience him, and now. time to cherish him in loving memory forever; blessed to have had him for this time, than to have never had him at all. Love You, Uncle Robert.

To Jose's family, my deepest symphonies for the loss of your husband and father. Jose always impressed me with his technical skills, his commitment to family and the values he supported. It was indeed these items which contributed to my hiring of Jose to join the EY family many years ago. As he is now with our Lord in Heaven. I know he is your angel overseeing your daily lives. God Bless Jose, and you his family.

Jose believed in me and gave me an opportunity to work as one of the first interns at EY's ASC in Houston. During my first week at EY, I was extremely nervous and didn't know if i was doing the right things and if i was going to succeed. So, I approached Jose to seek his guidance. I clearly remember his words In order to succeed, do at least one thing every day that scares you, that makes you nervous. I have been following his advice till date.

Thank you for your remarkable leadership, which has united and inspired all of us at EY. For all that we have learned from you, and all that we will continue to learn from each other, thank you, Jose.

Although I only knew Jose for five years, he was the person who most inspired me at EY, and particularly his passion for all things "cybersecurity". Jose you were always willing to give everyone a chance, and saw the uniqueness in each individual. For that, I will be eternally grateful. Although we have lost a great person, I am certain your spirit will continue to inspire those at EY for many, many years to come!

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. Jose was an amazing man, co-worker and friend. His legacy will live on at EY as if he is still here leading and mentoring so many of us. As Jose passes to a peaceful and loving place, it is my prayer that his beautiful family will have some peace and strength from knowing that he touched so many people professionally and personally and is remembered for his leadership and passion for life, family, friends and work and the tough fight that few could have endured. There is nothing greater to have accomplished; he did it all. I will miss you Jose.

Jose was not only a great brother, but a best friend, a teammate and a hero. He was always their for his little brother no matter what. I gave Jose the nickname the Captain because not only of his amazing leadership in the Military, but his leadership in every day life. I will miss my brother every single day of my life, but I know he will still be watching over me from the heavens above. Love always, Eddie Granado NJ.
