Shared tributes on Joe’s Passing

Brandi Lenzen – “Joe & I have had a phrase since 2007. He helped me pack up my entire dorm room to move home & we just crammed my car to the brim. I hate goodbyes so before I started crying with my farewell we loaded the last thing & I turned & looked at him & said, “WELP! See ya later!” – got in my car quickly & immediately put it in reverse. After that, he never let me leave without saying, “WELP! See ya later!” followed with a Joe hug & that boisterous laugh reminding me of my escape of trying to avoid sappy goodbyes.
We got to spend quality time together a few weeks ago & he got ready to leave & we promised to get together every 3-4 months to revive our souls again. “Welp, see ya later!” hug & laugh was in order… even though it was 15 years ago since I said that phrase the first time.
He touched so many… He lit up the room with his smile, his kind eyes, contagious laugh, & quick wit. My heart is absolutely crushed. My chest aches for his family, friends, co-workers, mom, twin sister, brother, husband, for all the people who should have met him, for the world, & for myself.
It’s safe to say, an “easy goodbye” for my friend Joe does not exist. I have to wrap all these tears, feelings, memories, & heartache into a, “WELP! See ya later.” RIP Joe Woods. You were a bright light, a beautiful soul gone way too soon. “

Jamye Woods – “I fell in love with you the first second I saw you. I knew you had to be my human. You taught me more about myself than anyone else was capable. You were my love, my happiness and my muse. The world will be forever darker without you. The broken pieces will never be fully restored. I love you, Joe Woods. More than anything I’ve known in existence. You were my husband, lover, best friend and partner. I just wish I could hold you forever.”

Tara Lou – “I’ve been struggling with this news today. I first met the Gay Jay’s early in my bartending days downtown, spending many a summer nights in the OG TJ’s parking lot and was lucky enough to see them throughout the years.
Individually they are both beautiful humans but together they radiated love and happiness.
You just knew when you saw them together they were the lucky ones to have found their other half.
There was nothing either could or would do that would cost them the other.
They were what we are all looking for.
They were partners. They were forever.
Sweet Joe Woods you find my Juju out there and she will get you into where the cool kids hang out.
You will be deeply missed.
Send Bowie our love – xo”

Spencer Smith – “Sometimes in life, you meet people who become some of the best, most beautiful friends you could ever ask for. These friends can light up rooms with their contagious laughter and spread absolute joy with their smile. I am so grateful for the years of friendship I found in Joe Woods. I have no words for the loss that so many of us are feeling. Thank you for the laughter, the beautiful music, and the friendship shared. I will miss you my dear friend.”
