My Aunt Pam was an unusually loving, beautiful, and smart woman. She was my mom’s best friend like none other. Some of my best memories included meeting up with her and Evan in Clifton Park to go to Ground Round and Toys R Us and when she took me to Universal Studios, just the two of us. She had an amazing heart and I feel so sad that my mom won’t get to grow old with her best friend and that her sons, husband, and grandsons have to suffer this loss. I can still hear her voice and see her beautiful face etched in my mind. I’ll be loving you forever Aunt Pam!

My memories of the family start very early since I know David, Lisa and Pam since birth. Her house was always open to me, and we enjoyed many childhood times. Parties were always extra special, with one teenage New Year's Eve a standout to this day. Our adult connection continued mostly at family events. She reached out to me in Boston when she learned of her cancer and I am glad to have helped her find some of her treatment advice.
This August I dedicated my 192 mile Pan Mass Challenge ride to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute to her. Pam had become a major sponsor of my fundraising. There is some ironic beauty in the fact that she passed just a few minutes after we finished our ride on Sunday. Anyone wishing to honor her memory with a donation can go to www.PMC.org/sb0314. Rest in peace.

I was number one ( I was Pam’s first husband) but I will tell you back then there were times when she thought of me more like number two if you know what I mean.
Pam would have thought that was funny because she used to bust on me all the time in a good natured way.
I could talk forever about all of Pam’s accomplishments and achievements both in business and her personal life but I will tell you the one she was most proud of is our son Evan.
She touched the lives of many people in a positive way and most were able to see her and say goodbye.
I have a saying that I am sure others have used when you meet people and like them and trust them.
I say he is just good people or she is good people, well if you lookup the definition of “Good People” in the dictionary you will see a picture of Pam.
She was the epitome of a good person.
We all love her and will miss her very very much !

On Sunday, my dear, dear, wondeful friend Pam passed away after a very courageous and long battle with a rare form of cancer. Yesterday, I attended her funeral with my family, along with my loving husband Frank and daughter Melissa McGill (our other daughter Jackie Reilly was away at a Reilly family reunion in Michigan). We all loved Pam and our daughters were raised calling her "Aunt Pam". Pam and I have been friends for 50 years! This loss is up there with the loss of my parents.

Pam was an incredible human being, a trusted friend, and was an amazing business woman; especially at a time when women did not go into business...or were not allowed into management.

Pam left behind a wonderful, devoted, beloved husband, Greg Jones, and two wonderful sons Evan Kozak and Jamie Kozak, and her dear sister Lisa Gottlieb and her dear brother David Scher. She also left behind an extended family, including her loving Aunt Marcia Scher Bernstein and enough friends to fill an auditorium. She was loved and admired by everyone she touched;

If you want to know more about Pam, please gp to the website of Riverside Funeral Chapel in NYC; her obituary is listed under Pamela Ahrens Jones. If you have the chance, please read the comments to see how Pam so positively impacted the lives of so many.

She is etched in my heart as my sister and lifelong friend,💕💕💕

I am so very sad to learn of Pam’s death. Pam promoted me to my first management role at Xerox and I worked for her for many years. She taught me much about leadership and life in general. Pam mentored me and so many other professional woman (and men)...and touched the lives of everyone she knew. It is hard to imagine Pam gone. I pray that her family knows how great of an influence she has had, how much she will be missed by those who worked with her, and how so many are praying for her family in this time of sadness.

My sincere sympathies to Pam's family. I worked with Pam in the Albany NY Xerox office. She was a great leader and friend. She was smart, spirited, could make quick decisions and was full of life. Her career was incredible and she worked hard and had incredible attention to detail and understood the business so completely. She was a friend to me and I learned a great deal from her. I was always was amazed at her energy for everything - golf, exercise everything she was focused on. My best to the whole family -- I hope memories of your time with Pam will live on with you.

Pam hired me in May of 2017. Before I started working for her she was diagnosed with her illness. She observed near my one year anniversary that I only knew her while she fought this terrible disease, yet,as I responded to her, if I didn't know she was sick, I wouldn't know she was sick.

Pam was a fighter. She worked through issues most would surrender to. She even came into the office the same day as treatments; she was determined to not let her illness define her at work.

A large reason why I took the position was to work with Pam. Many had the valuable experience of learning from her, benefiting from her personality, and her unceasing commitment to personal growth and development. While I did not have the pleasure for long, she taught me much about leadership and even more about perseverance and determination.

Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. Rest in peace. Amen.

It’s with great sorrow that I learned of Pam‘s passing today. I was her executive assistant for several years while she was at Xerox. We shared some really great times together when she would come to Indianapolis. Pam took me to my first Broadway play in New York City. She was not only my boss, she was also a good friend. So happy that her years with Greg were so special and that he loved and cherished her. Family was everything to her. She will be missed.
