Christopher Sanfeliz: Bank worker from Tampa


Christopher Sanfeliz, a 24-year-old Tampa bank employee, was remembered by a former classmate as "the most positive guy I've ever known."

"He [was] a wonderful person and this is such a tragedy," said Mike Wallace, a close family friend. "He was cut down in his prime."

After hearing news of the nightclub massacre that claimed 50 lives on June 12, Wallace and Sanfeliz's father, Carlos Sanfeliz, traveled to Orlando, arriving about noon, Wallace said.

Christopher, who graduated from Gaither High School in Tampa and was a personal banker at J.P. Morgan Chase bank, told family members earlier in the weekend he and a group of friends planned to go to Pulse.

Sanfeliz's family spent the day at the hospital in Orlando, Wallace said. They waited hours for any news about whether Sanfeliz had been admitted.

When the hospital released the names of its patients, Christopher Sanfeliz was not among them.

As those names were read, "people were crying hysterically," Wallace said. "It's really something awful to go through."

Realizing Christopher's fate, they returned to Tampa on Sunday evening and received official notice at about 7 a.m. on June 13 when a Hillsborough County deputy arrived at Carlos' doorstep, Wallace said.

"The family is very, very close," Wallace said, adding that Christopher's parents were not ready to speak publicly.

Sanfeliz is survived and adored by his mother, Maria Sanfeliz; his father, Carlos Sanfeliz; his brother, Carlos Junior Sanfeliz; and several family members, according to his official obituary.

He was buried at Myrtle Hill Memorial Park on June 18.
