Diana Jovic

August 15, 1979 - May 12, 2021
Diana Jovic

Diana Jovic, age 41, of New Port Richey, passed away May 12, 2021 after a courageous seven-year battle with ovarian cancer. Diana was born August 15, 1979 in Pula, Croatia to Sam and Dusanka Kajtezovic. She came stateside with her family November 11, 1999. She married her devoted husband, Jovo, in March of 2004 and they have two beautiful daughters together, Mila and Maja.

Diana simply loved life. She was an avid reader, she enjoyed music, she explored the great outdoors – from mountains to beaches and everything in between, and she cared deeply for animals. She was an exceptional person. Even through her illness, she was a ray of light and a beacon of hope. Diana spread smiles and love everywhere she went. Her life is a true inspiration, and her memory will be cherished by all who had the privilege to know her.

Diana is survived by her husband, Jovo; their daughters, Mila and Maja; her parents, Sam and Dusanka Kajtezovic; and her sister, Ivana Kajtezovic.

A gathering of family and friends will be held on Friday, May 21, from 1pm to 3pm with a service to follow at 3pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family would instead ask that donations be made to Moffitt Cancer Center or the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance. Those were the two organizations Diana donated to heavily, and she’d prefer supporting those worthy causes over receiving flowers. Thank you in advance for your thoughtful generosity.

    Diana, You will truly be missed, and I'm so glad that I was able to meet you in person and work with you over the last three years. It was truly a pleasure and you've been an inspiration to us all at Insurity. I will miss dearly our 1-on-1s, seeing your beautiful bald head and dealing with all the craziness that life and work brought us.

    Chica, You will forever be missed. You have been a wonderful friend and co-worker through the years. You had a quick, smart mind and worked diligently. You so LOVED your family and friends and constantly strived to enjoy life through all the obstacles along the path. You were a defender for the wronged and was never afraid to speak the truth. I pray your girls grow into strong, intelligent, witty and truthful person like you. I image you are watching over loved ones and joining some unknown battle in the Heavens! Much love forever and always my Chica!

    Draga moja Diana...Hrabra, pravedna, mudra,divna dušo...Bistrooka moja. Tvoj blistavi osmeh, prijateljstvo i ljubav, nosiću u srcu dok me bude. Naći ću te u zalasku sunca, čuti u vetru. Neki od nas odigraju ovaj životni spektakl “ćuteći ili drameći”, obično ili manje obično...a ti si tvoj proživela maestralno. Inspiracijo, zvezdo naša...odmaraj u miru...naka ti je laka plovidba nebeskim morima...

    Draga Diana, duboko nas je potresla vijest o tvom ranom odlasku. Bila si primjer kako se vedrim duhom i pozitivnom energijom hrabro koraca kroz zivot. Neka te u tisini vjecnog mira prati nasa ljubav jaca od vremena i zaborava.

    Draga Diana, brišemo suze, a suze i dalje teku, tražimo utjehu, al ju ne nalazimo, nadamo se čuti tvoj glas, al glasa nema, pitamo se zašto, a samo nam tišina odgovara... Od kada si nas napustila, sve tužno postalo je tužnije. Zauvijek ćeš živjeti u našim srcima, jer voljeni nikada ne umiru. S neizmjernom boli i velikom tugom, opraštamo se od tebe, voljena naša, i nadamo ponovnom susretu na nekom sretnijem mjestu ... Do tada počivaj u miru. Vole te tvoja baka Jovanka i ujak Slobodan

    Diana your time with Systema/Insurity was all too brief but your personality and dedication to your customers is a legacy that will live on. My thoughts and prayers are for your husband and daughters, may they have the strength to endure their loss, while also celebrate the life they’ve lived with you! Rest In Peace Diana!
