Joseph Peter Bartzis, 26, Cherished son of Peter and Angela (nee Giammona) Bartzis. Loving brother of Evan, Madeline and Lucas Bartzis. Beloved grandson of Evans and the late Elenie Bartzis and Joseph and Mary Giammona. Dear nephew of Alexandra (Peter) Kanavos, Martha (Steve) Tzioumis, Tony Giammona, Stephanie (Jerry) Voight and Sarah (Todd) McCutcheon. Fond cousin and trusted friend of many. He loved his family fiercely above all else. Joseph was a graduate of New Trier High School, Arizona State University and was a proud member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. Upon graduation with a degree in Business and Sustainability, Joey began working in the sustainable energy industry. In his short but accomplished career, Joey worked for Sunpin Solar as a business development manager, where he led the charge in establishing multimillion dollar solar farms across the country, residing in Arizona, Connecticut, Los Angeles, and most recently Boston. His passion and dedication to his work led his peers to commonly refer to him as "Solar Joe." Outside of work, Joey also passionately cared about his health as well as the health of others. As a fitness-enthusiast and a certified personal trainer, you could always find him at the gym, likely being envied by every other gym-goer. Joey was truly one of a kind, he touched so many lives in his short-lived 26 years. His radiant smile and positive energy brightened every room he walked into. May Joey's larger-than-life spirit continue to inspire. Joey was diagnosed with AL Amyloidosis, a rare and incurable blood disease, for which there are only 4,500 cases diagnosed a year. A major challenge is the current lack of early diagnosis in amyloidosis patients, which is a key factor in disease progression and prognosis. Awareness by the medical community and the general public is essential to turn this around. Increasing the level of support is crucial for research in this underserved disease class, so developmental therapies can be implemented to improve the outlook for amyloidosis patients in the future. Joey and his family's wish is that young people make it a priority to have annual physicals, as Joey's story is proof that no one, no matter how strong, is invincible.
