Pine Bush, NY
Dylan Jewis, a senior at Pine Bush High School, died unexpectedly on Thursday, October 28, 2010 at St. Luke's Hospital in Newburgh, NY. He was 17.
The son of Mark Jewis and Tina Smith Melendez, he was born on February 3, 1993 in Valhalla.
Dylan will be remembered for his big smile that would light up a room; lots of patience and for having a great sense of humor. He was mechanically inclined; loved old cars; video games; computers, heavy music; and had a huge love for all animals. He loved spending time with his big brother Mark and many friends and family. He was also excited to start driving and get his first tattoo. Dylan will be forever in our hearts. We love and miss him dearly.
