The Legacy of Sally Jobe

The Legacy of Sally Jobe
For Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The loss of Sally Jobe to the RIA community, on August 25, 1996, after a year-long battle with breast cancer, was deeply met with a desire to give it meaning. She was married to Dr. William Jobe, a visionary advocate for outpatient mammography as we know it and a founder of RIA.

On the occasion of Sally Jobe’s memorial service, his valued RIA colleague Dr. Steve Parker delivered her eulogy and proclaimed that the women’s breast center at Swedish Medical Center would be named in her honor.

Sally Jobe was a wife, mother, colleague and friend. Sally and her husband have been described as kind and compassionate, warm and caring, dedicated to community volunteer service, and focused on a priority to “do good” and live that example among their family, friends and neighbors. ISJ chooses to celebrate a mission that binds past to present: improving the lives and health of people in the communities we serve.

This is our legacy, and each employee of ISJ accepts the responsibility of honoring and preserving that legacy. This legacy lives in our hearts and will be continually replenished by investing ourselves into the shared values of putting patients at the center of everything we do.
