Remembering Julie Devine

julie-2The Realcomm family is deeply saddened by the tragic loss of our beloved partner, Julie Devine, on March 15, 2016. For almost 18 years, we have cherished our relationship with one of the most loving, happy, giving, kind and positive people one could ever hope to meet. Julie simply lit up every room she walked into. This beautiful woman was a devoted wife to her high school sweetheart, mother to three wonderful children, daughter, sister and friend to many. She touched our lives and we will miss her dearly.

We invite you to share a memory, thought or prayer in tribute of this very special woman who is shining in heaven now, seated next to her Savior, Jesus Christ.

  1. Grandma and Grandpa Statzer says:

    What a privilege it was for God to loan Julie to us for 43 years to be her grandparents, we were blessed. /because she was our first grandchhild we got to practice our grand-parenting skills. She was a blessing to us her whole life; as she grew and blossomed into the fine young lady she became and we knew we loved and cherished this new phase of our life. God blessed you Julie because you loved Him and gave your heart to him at an early age. God gave you a wonderful husband and you had a wonderful life together that was a Godly example to everone who knew you especially your three wonderful children.
    They have a great heritage.
    Julie, grandpa and I loved you at first sight. We are so glad we were part of your life and we look forward to seeing you again when God says it is our time. We miss you.

  2. Barbara Sullivan, extended friend network says:

    As I walked up to crash a RealComm awhile back, Julie welcomed me with the graciousness and kindness of a long time friend. It’s too rare in the business world to find these beautiful souls, ones who add joy and caring to our hectic lives. My sympathies to her family and friends.

  3. Pete Scarpelli (CBRE) - Friend and Colleague says:

    I am honored to have won one of the first Digie Awards issued in Julie’s name.

    Realcomm is an insttution in the real estate technology industry and Julie played a major role in making it so. Relationships matter in business and in life. Julie had that unique ability to make whomever she was working with feel comfortable and special as a person, and confident the task will be done to the highest standard.

    My prayers go out to Julie’s family.

  4. Chuck Niswonger - Friend says:

    It is hard to imagine arriving at next week’s Realcomm Conference without seeing Julie’s wonderful smile, positive attitude and servant’s heart. Every member of the Realcomm team has become a friend, but Julie was special. There are no words that could adequately express the sorrow, shock and sadness we all must have felt in learning of her passing. I consider it an honor to have known her and extend my sincerest condolences to her loving family. She is deeply missed.

  5. Rhonda Silvas, friend and co-parent to GOHS Cheer. says:

    Julie what I will hold close in my memory is your contagious laughter and bright smile. You were in it for a good time for all who were around you. Even if it met adding an extra 8 in your dinner plans of the 10 you already had going to the “hole in the wall”, Come on girl come with us, it’s Italian food, “free wine” and fun atmosphere was your text to me. The laughter that filled that table as we ate bread by the baskets, fill up on pasta till it hurt, and drank “free wine” to make us laugh a little more boldly, will be a treasure of mine forever. I thank you for the memories of laughter and kindness.

    Cheer at GOHS is better for having you there to be a team mom to those girls on both sidelines and competition. They loved those baskets full of treats, they were always so special.
    Cheers Julie till we meet again.
    Love ya, girl!

  6. Stephanie Dawson and family. Neighbors says:

    I couldn’t believe the news when I heard it. We use to be neighbors with the Devine family and my daughter Avara was good friends with her daughter Madi in elementary. Julie helped me out as a single mom making sure Avara got to and from school safely with Madi. She was always helping and carpooling the kids around. She was always smiling, happy, and so helpful. Julie literally was a fun person who had a tremendous amount of energy and everyone loved being around her. She will forever be remembered as young, beautiful and devoted wife and mother. My prayers and thoughts go to the Devine family through this difficult time. She will be forever missed.

  7. Mindy Matullo - Trimble Client says:

    I recently heard about Julie’s passing and I’m still in shock that I just spoke to her regarding webinar details just a few weeks ago. I even called her voicemail again last week, not knowing she had passed away and enjoyed hearing her lovely and welcoming voice over the phone. Julie was a true marketing professional and a delight to work with. I am deeply saddened by her passing and my heart goes out to her family and close friends.

  8. Jane and Gary Lange Aunt and Uncle says:

    There were no words that the both of us could express at the shock of losing such a wonderful, caring woman. I don’t believe I have ever mat anyone who could make whomever she met feel included, special, and welcome at the same time! We will truly miss her generous hospitality we received whenever Julie and her family invited us over for family functions. God for sure has added one of his very best creations to his Heavenly home, sadly at our loss. Julie, we will see you again. Jesus said he went to prepare a place for us and I believe that to be so true – you already know, don’t you?

    Rest in peace Julie, we love and miss you!

  9. Sue and Henry Konopka, Aunt and Uncle says:

    Julie once shared with us that she felt herself the luckiest person in the world to have such a devoted husband and family. Now in light of the fact that she is no longer with us, we feel that we in the family were the lucky ones to have here with us. We miss you Julie,

    til we meet again,

  10. Cheri, John & Katie Parr says:

    Julie was an incredible person! It was so great working with someone who was fun and had a can-do attitude and inspired the best in all of us. She was such a kind and happy person who brought everyone up whenever she was around. Our family is very sad and we will truly miss you and are praying for you, Dan and the kids every single day. We will be here for Dan in the coming days if he ever needs anything.

  11. Kim Duke - Colleague says:

    I am so blessed to have had the privilege of knowing Julie since joining Realcomm just a few months ago. I experienced her warmth and kindness from my first exposure to the company. Julie carried herself in a gracious and sincere manner that seemed to draw people to her. At the Christmas party, she took me by the arm and said, “You fit right in like you have been in the Realcomm family a long time.” She made me feel so welcomed and I knew she was a special lady. I mourn her loss along with her family and friends and know that God has a plan in all things, even in this tragedy. Dan and their three precious children are in my prayers.

  12. Tina Hewtt-Friend says:

    I was blessed to have Julie in my life. Julie was always there for me. When we got together, we could talk for hours. I could share anything with her and I could not have asked for a better friend. Julie was upbeat, happy and interested in what you had to say. It does not surprise me how many lives Julie has touched. I miss Julie terribly. Rest in peace my friend.

  13. Cheri Mangum (Client) Xchanging says:

    I just heard about Julie passing away. It’s such a shock since I worked with her on a webinar a few weeks ago. What a sweet, wonderful, patient person she was with me – guiding me through everything that was needed. Only God can know what her family and work colleagues are feeling in their hearts now, and only He can restore their spirit. I’ll be praying for each of you who worked so closely with Julie and also for her family. May God’s love and grace always be with you.

  14. Tom Shircliff, Rob Murchison, Shaun Klann and all of us at Intelligent Buildings, LLC says:

    All of us at Intelligent Buildings who knew Julie are far better for it and we remain in a state of disbelief and sadness. We worked with her on different aspects of the conference and webinars as a customer and partner over the years. As all the wonderful comments about her indicate, she had a perpetual optimism that was contagious. Just seeing her, hearing her voice or even getting an email made us smile. She was such a beautiful, sweet person and we are sure this was just a hint of what she must have been like as a wife and mother. We want her family to know how she impacted us in such a positive and memorable way.

  15. Janice Young says:

    No words can express the deep sadness that my heart feels for the loss of Julie. She was an inspiration to all that knew her. Her kindness, warm smile, sense of humor & wonderful attitude will be forever missed. She was always a joy to work with and be around. She had a servant’s heart. I am truly blessed to have known her and call her my friend.

    I pray that God will bring peace, comfort & healing to her family and to all that knew and loved her. She is our angel in heaven. xoxoxoxoxo

  16. Charles Meyers - client says:

    Julie was always a consummate professional and represented Realcomm in the best possible way. She had a positive energy that made those around her feel better. While some of us feel her loss professionally, I know this tragedy will have on huge impact on her friends and family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  17. Cameron Saunders says:

    I’m still in the shock and disbelief stage – Julie can’t really be gone! She was such a large, core component in a very small company and a friend to us all. She had an infectious laugh and always a positive “we can do this” attitude, even during the most stressful times. She was funny, fun to be around and just an overall good person. My heart really goes out to Dan and the kids – I am so sorry for your loss! Julie will be greatly missed!!

  18. Eric, Karen, Connor and Aaron Spring says:

    The shock Eric and I felt when we learned this terrible news was immeasurable but it’s only a tiny bit of what Dan, Julie’s darling kids, and her family members must have been experiencing. I had the pleasure of first meeting Julie in 1999 when she came to NJ with Dan for our wedding. I remember her always smiling, full of life, and just simply a joy to be around. She and Dan along with Brittany, Jake, and Maddie came to visit us again after our sons were born. Julie had such a huge smile and was so vibrant. She and Dan made us laugh. Britt, Jake, and Maddie were young but they were amazingly sweet and kind with my babies. Although it’s been years since I saw Julie, Dan and the kids, knowing that Julie is no longer on this earth makes my heart hurt so much. The world is a lot less bright now without her spirit, kind heart, and beautiful smile. As soon as I heard the terrible news of her passing, I instantly imagined her with the most gorgeous, lacy angel wings dancing in the heavens. It gave me a small amount of comfort. I know she is looking down on her beautiful, sweet kids, her devoted husband, and her loved ones and friends and keeping them safe. She is truly an angel, much as she was one when she was here. May God bless all of her loved ones and give them the strength, comfort, and compassion they need. Our hearts are broken all the way out here in NJ knowing that beautiful Julie is now in heaven. We send you all love and hugs from across the miles.

  19. Lisa Woods says:

    I am heartbroken over the loss of my dearest, closest friend. Julie was one of the sweetest, kindest and most gracious people I’ve ever known; she made everyone feel special and demonstrated on a daily basis her tremendous love for her family. I had the privilege of knowing Julie for over 10 years and I have so many insanely good memories that I’ll cherish forever. I can’t imagine a conference or a partner meeting or an end of year holiday party without her but I know she’s in a better place and we have to carry on; she would want that. She touched the lives of everyone around her and I am so grateful to have been her friend. I will miss our daily Skype exchanges, hearing her voice on our calls, rooming with her at conferences and will always remember how she loved to order room service.

    We lived 3000 miles apart but we were closer than people who live across the street. The world is a little sadder place now that she’s not in it and I miss her very much.

  20. Dulcinea- Friend :) says:

    God’s plan for Julie to enter the Heavenly realms unexpectedly arose on Tuesday, March 15th 2016. She leaves behind her 3 beautiful children and an abundance of dear friends, family and loved ones. We are all deeply mourning the loss of such a loving, beautiful, kind, funny, and radiant woman, and earth angel.

    As for Julie, fly to the Highest of the Heavens beautiful spirit and soar with Jesus, Angels, God, and ALL of Heaven, including your mama Jan, into the realms of infinite love, light and God’s beauty… You will forever be a Star in our lives and your light will eternally shine upon, and within us! Your earth angel effects will live forever and ever!

    Julie powerfully influenced me at a young and impressionable age and showed me what love truly is… And for this I will forever remain grateful.

  21. Amy Berger says:

    Words can’t express the sadness I feel for losing such a special friend. Julie was such a beautiful person, both inside and out. Her vibrant personality and sweetness will be terribly missed. Although we didn’t have the chance to physically get together often, I knew that she truly cared. She’d sit with me during Realcomm events and we’d spend hours laughing away. Our IM and text exchanges during some tough times I had were enough to prove to me that Julie was truly a friend. She consoled me and told me that she loved me and reminded me that she’d always be there for me if I needed her. Those were rare times, but they’ve stayed in my heart. Heaven gained an angel and I know she’ll be watching over me and my family. You’re in my thoughts and prayers every single day, Julie.

  22. Bob Hawekotte Attorney says:

    Very sadden by the loss of such a young and energetic person. It was always a privilege seeing the dedication she brought to Realcomm. She will be sorely missed.

  23. Mary Feinstein says:

    Julie’s passing leaves a big hole in the world and will never be filled. We will miss her terribly. I hope time, love and support will eventually heal the grief everyone is feeling. Julie, thank you for being a part of our lives, however brief. You will be missed.

  24. Meghan Mammoliti - cousin says:

    Julie was my cousin and I am deeply saddened when thinking about losing her. She was truly a light in our family. Our family will not be the same without her. She was the oldest cousin… the ring leader and is someone I have always looked up to. Her laughter was infectious she was always cracking jokes or starting something with all the cousins. I remember her babysitting me and Sydney and Brad when we were little. It was always a good time. I remember fun times at the beach, our fun cousin trip to Vegas with Christy when Jonathan and I turned 21 and countless family gatherings. I remember the first time meeting Dan when Julie brought him to Mission Bay to meet the family and he had his khaki hat on :p Julie would take me out on the bay on Uncle Terry’s jet ski and we would race other people. She was always the wild and crazy, fun one. Those were such fun times. Dan and Julie were the sweetest couple and always so loving. Together they raised the sweetest and most respectable children. All of my thoughts and prayers go out to Dan and the kids. This isn’t for forever. We will see her one day again. And it will be a BIG ol’ family party.

  25. Hollie Osorio says:

    I had the honor and pleasure of teaching all
    of the Devine children. While teaching Julie’s children I got to know an amazing mother who dedicated herself to her family. She was one of those moms that volunteered in the classroom when ever she could and she always made sure her children had what they needed. There wasn’t a day that went by that she didn’t make a point to always smile and wave as she went through the pick up loop. Julie loved her children and she will always be an inspiration to all moms. She was a vibrant women who was always smiling and really loved life. I know that her children and wonderful husband, Dan will continue to share her legacy. She was for sure one of a kind that will be truly missed. 💔

  26. Dawnelle Northcutt - Aunt says:

    My sweet Julie is my neice….in fact when she was born I became an aunt for the first time. She was the first grandchild, first child to my brother and sister in law. I remember how special that felt. I used to babysit her; Julie was such a sweet child. As an adult, she was the same sweet person with a little bit of an onary streak! She loved to laugh…especially at your expense! I loved her sense of humor, her kindness, her loyalty, and friendship. Yes, family can be friends as well.
    Our very close family is experiencing unimaginable grief. Losing Julie is like losing one of the colors of the rainbow. How are we going to manage without the brightest and most vivid member of our family? I will tell you how.
    Julie had a huge faith in Jesus Christ as her Saviour. God promises that She is not lost forever if you are a believer. We WILL be reunited with her again someday.
    The verse that is comforting me is Philippeans 4:6-7
    BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING, but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be known to God; and the peace of God, that passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

  27. Tina Danielsen says:

    Julie was a huge part of the Realcomm family, this is such a loss, a bright light that will be missed every day. She was so friendly and warm, the ultimate professional and so quick to laugh. I will miss her smile and wit and friendship. Dan and family, our thoughts are with you. Julie was a huge influence on so many.

  28. Nancy Stone - Colleague says:

    Beautiful, sweet, smart and sophisticated. Never selfish, always loving and kind, always willing to help, always able to turn a frown into a smile. You leave us with many wonderful memories. Farewell my friend, you’ll live on in my heart until we meet again.

  29. Keith Aisner - Friend says:

    Julie was rare. Sweet, kind and beautiful, while being smart and professional with a sharp wit. I am stunned and deeply saddened to know I will not be able to hear her voice or see her smile again. To Dan and her children I send my love and thoughts. I cannot imagine what you’re going through.

    It was a privilege to know Julie. I’m so glad I had the chance to spend time with her. I wish it could have been more.

  30. Rob Park - Unboxedesign says:

    I’ve known Julie mainly through Realcomm holiday parties and she would always light up a room. Julie was always happy, friendly and gracious. I would take pictures of Dan and Julie while noticing their big smiles and the true love that they had for one another. We would talk at the table about our kids and how she had an even bigger family because of all of their children’s friends that would come over to their house. I was at Costco the other day and overheard one of the young kiosk managers (Emad) talking with his aunt about how they are still devastated by a recent death. As Emad was helping me we discovered by coincidence that he was referring to Julie Devine. I was so moved to hear about how her kindness had reached so many people and generations. We continue to pray that God will provide comfort, strength and love to the Devine family.

  31. TK Smith says:

    Julie was such a true friend, professional and a incredible Realcomm partner. She always gave everything to get the job done right and always with a smile. I remember meeting at Jazz in the Park and talking about kids, parenting and how fast life moves. Whether it was putting on the Realcomm show, the after party or the holiday party, there was always fun and lots of laughs. Julie was so kind, always wore a smile and had a laugh that will be missed.

  32. Karen Smith says:

    There are no words to express our sadness in knowing we won’t see Julie again. For nearly 18 years, it seems we have built our families, marriages & careers in a parallel universe. Always crossings paths a few times a year to compare notes. I feel blessed to have known Julie during such important years. She will be greatly missed, but will live on forever in our hearts. Thank you Julie for your positivity, laughter & inspiring us all to make the most of every day. You accomplished a great deal & left a lasting mark in your short time here.

  33. Ian Thompson says:

    I feel so grateful to have had the honor of working with Julie for the past 5 years. Her guidance, patience, humor, and grace were one of a kind. Anytime things were piling up and getting stressful she was the first person I would reach out to; and within a matter of minutes my entire outlook had changed. She was a very special soul and will always be remembered and missed.

  34. Howard Berger says:

    Dearest Julie. I can’t believe we’ve known each other for nearly two decades. You know thought of you as my little sister. I’ll always remember your smile, bright spirit, warmth and compassion but most of all, I’ll remember your laughter. Your laughter was so infectious. I remember so many occasions when we all got together that we literally had uncontrollable fits of laughter, not being able to stop howling for the longest time, tears of laughter streaming from our faces. I’m going to miss you so very much.

  35. Gerry says:

    Your zest for life is an inspiration to me. Thank you. Love, Gerry

  36. Greg Ausley says:

    I’m still in complete shock and so sad about Julie. She was such a dedicated partner and great friend to the Realcomm family and to me personally. It’s hard to imagine a Realcomm conference without her. She was incredibly professional and such a hard worker but always brought a really great attitude to everything she did. I will never forget how much fun we had each year at the post-conference parties, laughing non-stop and having way too much fun. I will miss her… a lot.

  37. Jim Young - Partner Realcomm says:

    For 18 years I have had the privilege of working with Julie Devine. From day one, she brought a positive, joyful, professional and gracious spirit to our lives. To say she will be missed would be an understatement. We know that she is home with her Savior and for that we are forever grateful. Our prayers are with her husband and family as we all struggle to make sense of this tragic event and know that in time, it will become clear what God’s plan is. Thank you Julie for 18 wonderful years of working with you to make the world a better place!

  38. Candy Lingenfelter says:

    Dearest Devine Family,

    I was so shocked and saddened to hear about Julies passing. We worked together at Hunter Steakhouse many many years ago. She was kind, loving and so special. She was never mean to one person even if they were rude to her. Never a mean word spoken from her. Julie and Dan were so much in love and I could only hope that one day I would find that love myself. I remember when Julie was expecting her first child, she just glowed. We lost touch when they both left and went into different professions but I never forgot her and Dans kindness to me. Rest peacefully Julie until we meet again.

  39. Nick Soltau says:

    I have known Julie my whole life. Some of my earliest memories include her and the rest of the Statzer family. Her brother Josh is my best friend. Our mothers were best friends and our fathers worked at the same business. I think I probably spend half my childhood at the Statzer home. In all that time, I got to know Julie in several ways. She was my babysitter on occasion. She was a chauffeur when Josh and I needed rides home from anywhere. She was my supervisor while working at That Pizza Place. Her and Christy were the sisters I never had. Julie was always friendly and easy going. She made things look so easy with a laid back confidence that came so effortlessly for her.
    I remember her laughing. She was always quick to laugh. It was the same laugh as her mom. It’s sad the world has lost a laugh like that. It was a laugh that could make you think you were one of the greatest comedians on earth.

    I had not seen Julie in the last several years, and I am saddened that I won’t get the opportunity to see her again.

  40. Alison Johnston says:

    I was so saddened to hear of your passing, Julie. Having grown up in and around your home I always admired you for the wife and mother that you were. When I think about the Devine family I think of your smiling faces, late night sleepovers, and countless fits of laughter. You and Dan were so in love and flirty even after three children. That was something I wasn’t used to but I’ll never forget it. Together you raised three BEAUTIFUL, talented, and smart children that are better people because of the love you provided them. I find peace knowing that your pure soul has made it up to Heaven where you can be with your mom. I love you Julie. I’m sad you had to leave so unexpectedly but we’ll be seeing you. ❤️

  41. Jill Statzer says:

    Love and prayers to the family. I am a relative from OH. I had never met Julie, but I felt very close to her. My daughter was also named Julie Statzer. Please pass on my thoughts to Aunt Janelle and Uncle Don and Terry. Love to all Jill Statzer

  42. Amanda Park says:

    Julie, you are missed so much around here. I’m sure you’re feeling all the love. You must be so happy up there in Heaven with your mom and our Lord, Jesus Christ! I can’t wait to see you there! I know you have no worries leaving all your loved ones behind, especially Dan and your children because God’s still in control and He’ll take good care of them! Thank you for being our angel! Thank you for inspiring us to live out our lives like you did. I’m sure everyone is a better person because of you.
