Jens K. Volinskie, 26, of Hummelstown, passed away Thursday, May 10, 2018 in his home.
Born in Harrisburg on July 31, 1991, Jens was the beloved son of Kevin M. and Kimberli J. Hoke Volinskie of Hummelstown.
Jens was a Customer Solutions Specialist for the Webstaurant Store, Lititz. He was a 2009 graduate of Hershey High School, where he excelled academically, as well as athletically, in lacrosse and soccer. He continued his education at the Pennsylvania State University main campus, where he was a member of Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity, graduating with a degree in biochemistry and molecular biology in 2013.
Jens enjoyed playing Xbox, and loved both playing and watching sports, being a huge Steelers fan. He was kind, caring, loving and had a huge heart of gold that just wanted to make others happy. His kindness and love for others was always present and exemplified his willingness to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. He was forever trying to bring people together and always looked out for the underdog. Jens was all personality and generosity, exuding positivity with a laid back style. A perfect combination of heart and soul.
He will always be remembered for his infectious smile and laugh. Jens touched so many lives, and will be dearly missed by his loving family and friends.
In addition to his parents, Jens is survived by his paternal grandparents, Robert and Elizabeth Volinskie of Palmyra; maternal grandparents, Frank and Cheryl Hoke of Mechanicsburg; paternal aunts and uncles, John and Sherrie Jelliff of Palmyra, and Jim and Kim Eckard of Holidaysburg; maternal aunts and uncles, Jeff and Laura Hoke of Mechanicsburg, and Doug and Mary Weber of Camp Hill; many cousins who he loved; and his dear friends.
