Lisa, I can never thank you enough for always making the time to teach me, lend an ear, and have my back. Your commitment to your role at work was always appreciated and respected by so many. I don't think I will ever work in an office so upbeat and lively. I will miss you checking in with me at the end of the day to see if there was anything else I needed, and our conversations that followed - whether that be about work or our personal lives. I'm much better in so many ways for having known you. Rest in peace.

My deepest condolences to Lisa's family. Lisa was an outstanding, dedicated and trustworthy colleague. Lisa mentored many younger colleagues at Aetna and they are the better for it. Her smile and infectious laugh lightened up many days at Aetna.

Godspeed Lisa.

It is difficult to put into words what Lisa meant to me. She was both a trusted mentor and a dear friend. She would seamlessly transition between both roles with her characteristic charm. She was a constant advocate who provided counsel and, in the event things didn’t work out, a sympathetic ear. Lisa influenced and informed my decisions, both professional and personal. I consulted her before every career decision, knowing that she would readily offer her valuable expertise, but her reach extended beyond the office; she would regularly offer suggestions on everything from makeup to dog toys.

It was Lisa’s nature to be both helpful and generous. She would regularly surprise me with small gifts that made her think of me. Looking around my home and workspace you will find several items that Lisa either gifted or recommended to me and I will cherish them forever. But what Lisa was most generous with was her time. As busy as she was, she always found the time to meet and guide me, even if that meant coming in early, staying late, or inviting me into her home.

When I gave birth to my daughter, Alice, she could not have been happier. She would joke about how she hoped that Alice and her nephew, Maxwell, would eventually marry. We regularly traded pictures of our babies and our dogs. Lisa easily endeared herself to others and felt like an extension of our family. Her sudden loss is a blow I could never prepare for. I will desperately miss her contagious laugh, her sage advice, and her kind heart. She was truly one of a kind and I can say with all sincerity that I will never forget her and I will carry her in my heart forever. It was a privilege to have known her and I am better for it. My deepest condolences to her family: her dear parents, her brother, Will (whom she regularly spoke fondly of), her sister-in-law, Alex, whom she joked made an honest man out of her brother, her beloved nephew, Maxwell, and her beautiful pups, Winnie and Aggie. There are no words, but my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Lots of love, Tanya Kulangara

Lisa was a ray of sunshine in so many people’s lives. She was a leader, colleague, mentor and trusted friend to so many. Anyone who had the pleasure of meeting Lisa could tell instantly that she was special. She possessed this infectious energy that drew people to her. I consider myself truly blessed to have been able to call Lisa my friend.
She was the kind of genuine friend who could always be counted on to lend an ear. No matter how busy she was (and she was often busy) she made the time. I knew I could always call her, stop by her office, or drop by her house, if I needed to chat; she would be there, willing to listen and offer her advice. Lisa didn’t give cookie-cutter advice; she gave her honest feedback and told you what you needed to hear at any given moment. Like so many others, she helped guide my career. I looked up to her as a strong, independent woman who had built her career on her own merits and worked hard to become so successful at a young age. I will always admire her and strive to be more like her; she was a unique blend of strength and compassion. There will never be another Lisa.
The halls of Aetna will be so empty without her joyous laughter to fill them. Her laughter could be heard echoing through the halls and was a welcome sign that she was just around the corner. I always looked forward to her surprise visits to my desk, heralded by her trademark laugh as she stopped to talk to other friends along the way. In classic Lisa fashion, she made friends wherever she went.
We would talk about whatever we were binge-watching and she would show me the latest pictures of Winnie and Aggie as she ate candy from the dish I kept on my desk. Those simple visits meant so much. I am so thankful that I still have the post-it notes she would leave on my desk just to let me know she had stopped by when I wasn’t around. I will cherish them along with the wonderful memories I have of Lisa. One of my personal favorites is when she came over to go to the coffee kiosk with me and I was in my boss’s office, so instead of just going on without me, she tapped on the glass to let my boss know he should dismiss me from his office to go with her instead. That is the kind of energy Lisa lived her life with.
I loved our visits to the coffee kiosk. Back when Coke first started to make the bottles with names on them, we would regularly check Aetna’s inventory, searching for a ‘Lisa’ bottle. While I wasn’t with her when she eventually found her own name, I had the pleasure of seeing the joy on her face as she found the names of other friends and coworkers and then proceeded to buy them as gifts. That’s the kind of person Lisa was, always thinking about others.
Lisa made it a point to show that she loved those around her. After a difficult time, I made a bucket list and it happened to be up on my computer screen during one of her regular visits. The following week she messaged me to stop by her office. When I got there, I saw a box and she handed me a pair of scissors; inside was the cutest cookie jar. She had seen “owning a cookie jar” on my bucket list and wanted to help me cross something off. I will forever hold onto that gift, and all the other precious mementos she gifted me over the years, knowing how much she cared about me and everyone in her life. But her presence was the greatest gift of all. Lisa had this way of making each person feel special and loved.
Her absence is a profound loss. Like everyone else, I’m in utter shock as to how such a vibrant light could be dimmed so suddenly. All I know is that she was loved and she will not be forgotten. I am eternally grateful for the years of friendship I shared with Lisa and her light lives on in everyone whom she touched. Although her life may have been short, I take comfort in knowing that Lisa lived it on her terms and to the absolute fullest. My deepest sympathies go out to her entire family, especially her beloved parents, brother, sister-in-law, nephew, and dogs, Winnie & Aggie. I cannot fathom your loss, but your family is in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

I worked with Lisa for many years and remember when she started working at Aetna. What a shock the news this past week was to everyone. It will take a while to recover from. My deepest sympathy and prayers to the family.
