OneBlood, the local blood center, is grieving the loss of one of its own team members who sadly was among the victims of the tragic mass shooting in Orlando.
Rodolfo Ayala Ayala began his career with the organization in December of 2011 as a Biologics Assistant. Through his commitment and dedication to the OneBlood mission, he assumed the role of Team Lead in 2015 and most recently served as Platelet Supervisor in the Orlando laboratory. Rodolfo was a highly respected member of the OneBlood family. He was passionate about saving lives and took great pride in the lifesaving work he performed. Rodolfo was often called upon to share his knowledge and best practices with many of the people in his department and was an intricate part of a team of people who work diligently to help save lives. He was a caring and friendly person and will be greatly missed by everyone who had the honor of knowing him.
