Eli's Story

1/4/13 ~ 5/25/13
A beautiful angel received his wings and is now encircled in the love of his Heavenly Father after peacefully passing from this life in the arms of his adoring parents. 

Eli was born in Salt Lake City, Utah to Liz and Logan Jorgensen and brought them joy beyond description in his short four and a half months of life.  After a happy five weeks at home with his parents, Eli was diagnosed with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency and began a journey too difficult for most of us to comprehend. A successful bone marrow transplant unfortunately led to multiple struggles that his tiny body couldn't overcome. Despite going through so much, Eli fought until the very end and proved his desire to be here by holding his parents' gaze until his last few breaths of life.

Eli blessed the lives of a countless number of people and taught us all far more than we ever could have taught him. Our ultimate fighter beat the odds on several different occasions but in the end was called home to continue his great mission and work. He is survived by his parents and multiple grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who loved him dearly. Eli's parents offer their deepest gratitude to the staff at Primary Children's Medical Center who ensured their time as a little family was not only possible but also enjoyable.

Continue to fight on until we see you again, little Eli!
