Jeff Kennemer passed away unexpectedly in the night on November 18th. He was 62 years of age. Jeff was loved, appreciated, and respected by all who knew him. He owned "Go Solar and Spas," his family's company, for the past 30 years and "Ernie's Pools and Spas" for the past 10 years.
Jeff was born and raised in the Central Valley, then moved to the Central Coast with his family in his teens. He moved to San Jose 25 years ago to complete his Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering at San Jose State University, along with three Contractor's Licenses. He has also been a member of the International Pools and Spas Association for many years.
Jeff appreciated his community, his employees, his business, and his loyal customers of so many years. He also had a great passion for building and flying large model airplanes, receiving a recent award for the "Best in Show" and also having one of his planes featured on the cover of an Airshow Magazine.
Jeff loved his life, his family, his home and animals, and all of the special getaways they enjoyed so much together. He will be missed by many, especially by his wife, Kim, their children, grandson, and pups, and his sister, brothers, family, and friends.
A Celebratory Gathering to honor Jeff will be held on January 5th from 11 - 1 pm, in the San Jose Scottish Rite Center on Masonic Drive. Those who knew and loved him are welcome to attend and share in the stories and memories of his life!!
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in his name to an animal rescue charity.
We love you Jeff...you left a huge impression on us all. ♡♡
