Message from Isles Leadership

Dear Isles Family and Friends,


It is with profound sorrow that we share the news that Amor Adeva, Isles’ Grants Accountant, passed away on Thursday, 4/11 after experiencing a medical emergency in our offices.


Our Isles family is shocked and saddened by this unexpected and tragic event. Amor was a kind and gentle presence at Isles, always smiling for the many staff and partners who relied on her. A quiet, thoughtful friend, Amor was deeply committed to the people and work of Isles. We loved her and will miss her deeply.


Born and raised in the Philippines, Amor joined Isles in 2012 after working as an Auditor/Accountant at TCBA Watson Rice LLP and A.F. Paredes & Co. Amor received her education in the Philippines as well, earning a Bachelor of Laws from San Sebastian College of Law in Manila and her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the Philippines School of Business Administration.


Amor is survived by her husband, stepchildren, and grandson in Piscataway, as well as many family and friends here and in the Philippines. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. We are in communication with her family, and will keep you apprised of funeral arrangements as details become available.


In 2013, after Typhoon Yolanda devastated the Philippines, Isles and our staff contributed to the relief effort in Amor’s honor. “MABUHAY TAYONG LAHAT” she had written to us in gratitude, “We Welcome All.” Amor was a welcoming spirit for all who knew her.  We are grateful to have known and loved her, and we hope her family finds peace in the coming days, knowing she did so much for others. 


Thank you for your patience and understanding as we grieve the loss of our friend and colleague.


In community,


John Hart, Marty Johnson, and the staff of Isles
