It is with broken hearts we reveal that Jack Ryan Jerzyk passed away on March 15, 2021. He predeceases his parents John and Pamela (Beck ) Jerzyk and his sister Rebecca Huard and her husband Matthew Huard and their beautiful children Julien and Gisele.
Jack was born in Tacoma, Washington and went to elementary schools in Chicopee and Granby. He attended Wilbraham Monson Academy and Holyoke Catholic High School. At Holyoke Catholic, Jack was a member of the National Honor Society. At graduation Jack was third in all-time scoring for Holyoke Catholic in basketball with over 1100+points. He was first team All-Western Mass in basketball and was All-Western Mass in golf.
Jack attended St. Anselm and UMASS as an undergrad obtaining his B.S. from UMASS. He then attended Western New England Law School and obtained his Juris Doctor degree there. Jack was employed as an Assistant District Attorney in Hampden County at Springfield for approximately 11 years.
Besides his parents John and Pam and his sister Rebecca and her husband Matt, Jack leaves behind his nephew Julien and niece Gisele, who he called his ‘little PoopyHeads”. He also leaves behind his Uncle Mike who he loved so dearly and many aunts, uncles as well as many cousins. He will be missed by his kind and loving friends, Joseph Lynskey and Ethan Percy, whom he affectionately enjoyed to joke and kid and frolic with.
Jack fondly talked of his court house friendships, especially with all the court officers and his fellow workers. He loved Adam Corolla and his kitties “Parker” and “Kiki”, The Cape, U2, Cold Play, the Celtics and Patriots. He spent his weekday evenings playing Jeopardy with his mom.
We will miss his soft and gentle soul, his sarcastic and joking demeanor and his biting wit. Our world will never be the same without him. He was our Rock Star.
