Obituary of Jack Szymanowski


John Thomas Szymanowski, left this world on August16, 2017.  He shared 25 years of love and strength with all who had the pleasure to know him.  He was our Son, Brother, Grandson, Best Friend, and Sweetheart.  He was our Fighter.  And we will cherish our memories forever.  A Celebration of Jack’s Life will be held in the Fall of this year with his nearest and dearest.  In lieu of flowers, we ask that you always be your best self, be kind to others, and never be afraid to ask for help. We love you Jack. It’s ok...

Please share your memories here with his family. 

Jack was born John Thomas on August 11, 1992. His parents were over the moon for this new blessing.  The family settled in Jefferson Township where Jack attended school.  He graduated Jefferson HS and went on to graduate from Universal Technical Institute in Exton, Pa.  Not one to sit idly, he furthered his education with a certificate in Refrigerant Recovery and Recycling, allowing him another avenue to excel in.  Jack was a bright kid, always tinkering and fixing things.  He could fix anything.  He really had become a master mechanic over the past few years.  Most recently he was self - employed fixing German cars in his garages.  He enjoyed the work and the people he met along the way.  

When he wasn’t at work, Jack could be found with his sweetheart Courtney Marino or spending time with his immediate family.  He spent countless hours with Konnor and loved every minute of it.  The sun rose and set on Konnor.  Recently Jack was lucky enough to teach him to ride a big two wheeler!  Memories that will be cherished for years to come.  This is not the end.  We take comfort in knowing that we are lucky to have been blessed with Jack in our lives and our hearts. We will continue to fight his fight, share him and keep his spirit alive.

Predeceased by Andrew; he leaves beautiful memories to his Mom and Dad Sandra and Walter; also to Michael and Konnor; his sister Katie; his adored girlfriend Courtney Marino; and many more relatives and friends.


I’d like the memory of me

to be a happy one,

I’d like to leave an afterglow

of smiles when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo

whispering softly down the ways,

of happy times and laughing

times and bright and sunny days.

I’d like the tears of those

who grieve, to dry before the sun.

Of happy memories that I leave

when life is done.
