To read about Lisa's battle with triple negative breast cancer, in her own words, visit Lisa's Story
Where should we start? Lisa was like no other. From her spot-her-in-a-crowd long wavy hair, to her fun and spirited attitude, Lisa made an unforgettable impression on everyone around her.
Full of boldness, candor, and passion, to say Lisa lived life to the fullest is an understatement. Even while battling breast cancer, her eye was on experiencing life and traveling, and her main question for doctors was, "When can I fly again?"
Born and raised in the small town of Terryville, CT, she grew up surrounded by love from her proud parents, Andrea and Jesse Jablon, and was the watchful older sister to her younger brother, Ben. Lisa was truly a force to be reckoned with even at a young age. Ever the organizer, Lisa often found herself leading social gatherings and being deeply involved in her community and school.
While attending Hofstra University she met her husband Dave and countless lifelong friends. After graduation, Lisa worked in communications and public relations for Hunter and Warner Media, working on everything from Jell-O Pudding campaigns to corporate communication strategy.
Outside of work, Lisa lived for her friends and family. There were few evenings where she did not have plans. On top of that, Lisa loved to travel. She was fortunate enough to see so much of this world in the short time she had here with her husband Dave, as well as with her many friends.
When Lisa was diagnosed with breast cancer on Christmas Eve 2018, at age 29, it did not put a pause on any of the things that brought her joy. That included finally convincing Dave to make the 22 hour journey to Australia, post cancer treatment. That trip, while her last, was everything. It took her away from her troubles and brought her hope and reprieve. This is what we wish to bring to life for others, all while keeping Lisa's memory and spirit as an inspiration for us all in how we live our lives each and every day.
