Carrie Ann Eicholtz

Passed away on June 11, 2018

Carrie Ann Eicholtz passed away on June 11th, 2018 at the age of 35. Carrie was born and raised in Staten Island, NY and is survived by her beloved mother Madlyn Eicholtz (Maggio),father William David Eicholtz, sister Kristin Eicholtz,and maternal grandmother Josephine Maggio. An extremely smart, beautiful and strong young lady, Carrie attended St. Joseph Hill Academy, graduated with a pre-law degree from St. John's University (class Valedictorian) and completed her education at Hofstra University School of Law. Since graduating from law school she served the City of New York as a successful and well respected lawyer. Early in her professional career she engaged in the tough work of prosecuting juvenile court and police misconduct cases. For the past few years, she successfully served as Special Council for the New York City office of Payroll Administration and was adored and admired by her coworkers.

Her passion, though, was fashion, and Carrie loved serving as a stylist, following current trends, attending New York Fashion Week, and making sure the world made bold choices about their clothes, shoes, and accessories. You always knew you looked good when she gave you her seal of approval! Carrie loved her family deeply, and in the last few years, she traveled a lot with her mother and sister, and made countless trips to visit her father in Florida to attend baseball games, go horseback riding, and most importantly bask in the sunshine! There are not enough words to truly express how amazing this young lady was and the footprints she has left on all of our hearts. Carrie was loved fiercely by her family, her friends, and her colleagues and will be remembered for the unique energy, hilarious sense of humor and bright light that she shared with the world.

Sincerely, Kristin

I just now learned of Carrie's passing and I am so deeply saddened by the loss. Carrie was one of the most caring and genuinely nice persons that I have ever met. She was generous with her time and was more than happy to give a non-fashionista person like me much needed advice! I will miss her wit, her honesty and her smile. May peace be with her family during this time.

I had the pleasure of working with Carrie as her client when she assisted in styling my full-day photo shoot in NYC in the fall of 2016. From the moment we met, she was so vibrant, sweet, and funny. Carrie and I remained friends after my shoot was over and we stayed in touch. I always enjoyed seeing her social media posts showcasing a new and trendy outfit. Carrie brought laughter, joy, and style to my life. She taught me how to step outside of my comfort zone and dare to be seen. I wore my very first pair of Louboutins, thanks to her. She was someone I will remember and celebrate. What an intelligent, beautiful woman the world will miss. We love you.

Even though you're not with us, I can still hear your voice with that Staten Island accent of yours! Your laugh still rings in my ears.. I hope I never forget those things. Mostly, I know I will never forget the impact you've left on my heart and my soul. You were a rock in law school, always there to ease my anxieties and put a smile on my face. I loved commiserating with you about everything that was law school and the bar exam. I hope you were able to take with you a piece of my heart because I most certainly have a piece of yours with me. I'll miss you.

My sincerest prayers and condolences to the Eicholtz family and all those Carrie touched. You were truly one-of-a-kind and I was blessed to be able to call you my friend.

It was both a privilege and an honor to know you, Carrie. Your smile dazzled, your personality charmed and your enthusiasm for life never ceased to amaze me. Your energy was unparalleled. You could hit the gym, work a full day and then moonlight as a stylist all with a smile. I’m glad I recently had the chance to tell you that one of the highlights of my day was coming across your fashionable selfies in my social media news feed. You always brought a smile to my face. The Running With Heels community shall mourn your passing tremendously but you will never be forgotten. May your memory forever be a blessing. xoxo, Jenny

I attended the Academy of St. Dorothy with Carrie from Kindergarten through eighth grade. Although June marks twenty-one years of our graduation, the news of her passing weighs heavy on my heart. St. Dorothy’s is a small school, with one class on each grade level. Therefore, you are very much apart of each other’s lives as you learn and grow over the years. Carrie was always a bright and dedicated student. I am not surprised that she continued to excel throughout high-school, college, and her career. It is quite clear that she touched the lives of many. I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to the Eicholtz Family and let you know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. May the cherished memories you shared bring you comfort during this difficult time.
Rest peacefully Carrie...

Carrie was a friend and study group member in law school. She was dynamic, expressive and loved life. She was the star of the show when we were at a law school party or event. She was someone who I will always remember and value for her vivacity. I know that she also has contributed as a civil servant and caring member of the bar over the years. She has frequently expressed through our ongoing digital connections how the burden of practicing law was not merely a formality, she truly valued the privilege of representing her clients and the implications of her work.

I will miss Carrie for her fashion forward posts and transparent expressions of emotion and experience that showed a real person, struggling with finding balance between her career in law, passion for fashion, and the daily struggles of living in the City. Her passing has evoked emotion that is hard to comprehend and I hope that her family and close friends find peace as they mourn.

I am so sad to learn of Carrie's passing. She was by far the most fashionable and confident person I knew in law school. She was an incredibly bright person and simply a celebrity to us all. It is a tremendous loss at such a young age and all my prayers go out to Carrie's family.

To my dear law school friend who shared her sour patch kids and sprite with me ...you will forever be in my heart and never forgotten. I lost two very special souls 3 days apart and know that this world will never be the same. Sending love, comfort and peace to your family and all that knew you. I'll see you on the other side, kiddo.

Love always,
Shar

Carrie Ann- may you forever be at peace. I am saddened I never knew the woman you grew up to become. I’ve read many of the memories posted about you and I wish I knew you now.
My memories of you and Kris were in Florida visiting Grandma and Grandpa Eicholtz, in VT swimming in our pool or visiting Staten Island for a holiday.
You were a fashionista then too- check out the photo, “Mom, are you sure this looks good??!”- as you tug at your shirt.
May you rest easy knowing that Kris did not lose a sister, but she gained three. I’ve made a promise to myself and I will promise you, we will reconnect with your sister and know she has us now and forever.
You will never be forgotten but always missed. Keep smiling, it’s my fondest memory of you.
Xoxo love truly,
Your cousin - Cailin

I knew Carrie while she was a student at Hofstra Law School while I was an Assistant Dean there. Just a wonderful person, always with a smile on her face , a great sense of humor and truly a fashion plate. We remained in touch over the years via Facebook and she always maintained that wonderful smile and humor. My heartfelt condolences to her family on their loss. She will be very much missed.
