Southland Black Chamber Regretfully Announces Death of Member (Tinley Park, IL) – The Southland Black Chamber of Commerce and Industry, their board members, and the staff are sad to announce the death of beloved chamber member Elizabeth Jones, owner of Phleb4U, a phlebotomy training school.
“I am deeply saddened to announce the death of one of our beloved chamber members, Elizabeth Jones,” said board member Sarah Brown. “Her spirit was fierce, and although we are all mourning her death, I know that her spirit lives on within us who knew her. I am sending my deepest and most sincere condolences to her family. She was a great entrepreneur, family member, and friend who will be sorely missed. On behalf of the Southland Black Chamber of Commerce & Industry, I would like to extend our support to her family and students in any way we are able.”
Elizabeth Jones owned and taught at a phlebotomy training school, Phleb 4 U. Phlebotomy is the practice of drawing blood for testing, and is also an important tool used to diagnose medical conditions. The process involves using a cannula to make a puncture in the vein, typically located in the arm. Phlebotomists usually draw blood for tests, donations, transfusions or research to be analyzed in a clinical laboratory. The results are used to diagnose and come up with a treatment plan for illnesses, and may also determine if a patient is receiving proper nutrition.
Elizabeth Jones began instructing at Phleb4U in 2019. Jones believed that Phlebotomy is an amazing skill to have and hoped to touch those aspiring to pursue it in the Southland area. Her influence in the community will be sorely missed.
A memorial balloon release and candlelight vigil will be held tonight, August 30, 2022 at 7:00 PM. The gathering place will be at 17058 S. Anthony in Hazel Crest, IL.
