Jillian jill Ortiz

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share that Jillian "Jill" (Brady) Ortiz, 38, of Clifton Heights, PA, passed away on November 17, 2019 in her home surrounded by family after a valiant battle with breast cancer. She was born March 9, 1981 to Edward "Ed" John and Kathleen "Kathy" (Morgan) Brady in Philadelphia, PA. Jill graduated from Archbishop Ryan High School in 1999. She continued her education at West Chester University, where she received a B.A. in Elementary Education and continued further to receive a Master's during her professional career as a 5th grade teacher with Delcroft School in the Southeast Delco School District. Simply put, Jill was a special person. She devoted her life to her family and her friends. She was a loving daughter, sister, friend, wife and mother. Jill's passion was teaching. She was born for it. She knew how important the role of a teacher can be in a child's life and she took it beyond the books and tests. She loved every student as her own child and relished the opportunity to offer a word of advice, a guiding hand, or just an ear to listen. Beyond all else, Jill was a dedicated mother. She used her special gift to raise her two beautiful boys in her likeness. She treasured her boys and embraced every moment with them. Jill loved to dance and loved even more that her boys love to dance. Impromptu living room dance parties were a regular occurrence in her household. Jill is survived by her husband, Juan Ramon Ortiz, Jr. They were married on October 27, 2012. They had two children, Nolan Ramon and Joel Edward Ortiz, ages 5 and 2 respectively. She is also survived by her parents, Ed and Kathy; her sister and brother-in-law, Kelly Anne and Dominic Sellecchia and their children; her Mommom, Patricia Brady; and much more family and many friends, all of whom will miss her dearly. Family, friends and all those whose lives Jill touched are invited to take part in a celebration of Jill's life on Saturday, November 23rd beginning at 9:30 AM in Our Lady of Fatima Church, 1 Fatima Drive, Secane, PA 19018 where we will gather for an hour before Jill's 10:30 AM Funeral Mass. Immediately following Jill's mass we will head to Anthony's Ristorante and Banquet Center, 4990 State Rd, Drexel Hill, PA 19026 for a luncheon and refreshments.
