NICE NOTE from Jennifer
Hello, my name is Jennifer Peterson (I was Jennifer Carlson in high school). I wanted to make sure you were aware that Steve Loop passed away July 1st, probably due to a massive heart attack. Even though I didn’t know Steve in high school, he has been my friend the past 4 years here in Visalia. He spent his last day enjoying himself at a 4th of July party on Saturday, the 1st. He was very happy, showing everyone pictures of his new car that he had just ordered. After a couple of hours one of the women at the party wasn’t feeling well so Steve volunteered to take her home. His car was about ½ block away from the party so he told the woman to wait by the house and he would get his car and pick her up. He made it to the car, sat down and got his seat belt on, put the keys in the ignition and then was gone. A late party attendee arrived and parked behind Steve. He walked by and noticed Steve slumped over and called for help. One of the party attendees did chest compressions for 10 min before the emergency vehicles arrived and then they continued to work on him for 30 minutes at the hospital until they decided it wasn't going to do any good.
