In memory of
Paul Jeffrey Jaffe
Paul Jeffrey Jaffe January 20, 1949 ~ October 17, 2016 Our beloved Paul (PJ) Jaffe passed away on Monday, October 17, 2016 at 7:20 pm in Seattle, Washington, at the age of 67. Paul was born on January 20, 1949, to Ruby and Sidney Jaffe. He grew up in Seattle, with his brother Larry and his sister Susan. Paul graduated from Roosevelt High School, class of 1967, then attended the University of Denver, and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications. His love for his family brought him back to Seattle, where he worked alongside his father, managing their small family business, JAFCO; which rapidly expanded into a successful chain of catalog showroom retail stores. In 1990, Paul's "Gift of Gab" led him to an amazing opportunity in Taiwan. He co-hosted a morning radio show with IRCT, (International Community Radio Taipei) and became well known as the "nice man on the radio." During that time, Paul met the love of his life, Maria. They eventually returned to the USA together and were married in 1997. Two years later their son Joshua was born and Paul's life suddenly had new meaning! Paul had a passion for classic cars, and was a coffee connoisseur. He lived life the PJ way! His quick wit and quirky humor will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him and loved him. Paul is survived by his wife Maria Jaffe, his son Joshua Jaffe, sister Sue Silberman, sister-in-law Debbie Jaffe; three nieces, Lori Silberman, Jenifer Thornton and Sydney Jaffe . . . AND his loyal companion "Cognac." A memorial service & celebration of his life will be held on Friday, October 21, 2016 at 2:00 pm Temple De Hirsch Sinai 1511 East Pike Street, Seattle, WA Sign Paul's online Guest Book at www.Legacy.com
