Jack was born April 7,1954 and raised in Randolph, New Jersey. He graduated from Trenton State College in 1978 where he was a member of Sigma-Tau-Chi fraternity and played intramural hockey. He moved to Ann Arbor in 1978 and married the love of his life, Kathy Borysko. He worked at Boysville of Michigan while attending the University of Michigan's School of Social Work, obtaining his masters degree in 1985. Jack started his career with the U.S. government in 1986, retiring from the U.S. Probation Department for the Eastern District Court in May 2010.
Together Jack and Kathy raised their three children, Allison, John and Kevin. Jack loved all sports whether playing, watching or coaching. When his children entered Ann Arbor Huron High he became not only a supportive fan, but also a tireless, mostly good humored volunteer for the swim/dive and water polo teams. It is safe to say that watching his children and their teams excel, was one of Jack's greatest thrills.
Retirement allowed Jack to spend more time with his family and friends. Most days he could be spotted walking his dog Hazel, and he always looked forward to golf outings and fishing trips, especially to the Jersey shore. He could also be found playing countless hours of hockey and was a member of the Golden Masters Hockey League, continuing to play up until January 2013.
In addition to his wife and children, Jack is survived by his mother Joyce Gorine, sisters Karen and Patty, brother in laws Bob, Ron and Tim, sister in law Lori, niece Stephanie and nephews David, Joe and Ronnie. A huge hole burns in our heart with Jacks passing. We can cry for his departure but smile because he was in our life.
Visitation is at Muehlig Funeral Chapel Thursday, March 21, from 4-6:30pm with a funeral service at 6:30 and a reception to follow.
