OneBlood Grieves the Loss of Rodolfo Ayala Ayala

Orlando, Florida
June 14, 2016

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.


OneBlood is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community asset responsible for providing safe, available and affordable blood to more than 300 hospital partners and their patients throughout Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.  OneBlood operates more than 90 donor centers and deploys nearly 250 Big Red Bus bloodmobiles throughout the southeastern United States for blood drives. Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. To learn more about OneBlood visit www.oneblood.org.
