Jaroslaw Jozef ‘Jarek’ Laszczkowski Obituary

Jaroslaw Jozef ‘Jarek’ Laszczkowski passed away on August 31, 2023, at Lahey Medical Center following his battle with cancer surrounded by his loving family. Jarek was born on January 14, 1967 in Boleslaw, Poland to the late Jozef and Stanislawa (Kloczkowska) Laszczkowski. Losing his father at the age of 16, he eventually entered the Polish Military where he served for two years. In 1991, he embarked on a courageous journey to the United States, arriving with nothing but dreams and determination. Jarek tirelessly worked to build a successful life for himself and his family in Easthampton, a testament to his unwavering spirit.

Jarek was a remarkable family man. He was a loving spouse to Maria (Rajska) and devoted father to his two sons, Dominik and Patrick. His family was the heart and soul of his life, and he reveled in every moment spent together, imparting his wisdom, love, and especially humor.

Jarek’s infectious humor was a hallmark of his personality, and his stories and jokes brought laughter to all who knew him. He additionally possessed a strong and honest personality that earned him the respect and admiration of all who crossed his path. Jarek was a pillar of integrity, always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need while treating everyone like his own family. His generous spirit knew no bounds, and his willingness to support others in their times of struggle will forever be remembered.

Beyond his family and generosity, Jarek had an immense passion for sports, particularly soccer, volleyball, and tennis. He instilled his love for these games in his family, especially when everyone would hear him shout in polish from the sidelines at his sons. His dedication to sports mirrored his approach to life—full of energy, camaraderie, and a zest for competition.

Jarek is survived by his loving wife, Maria; his children, Dominik and Patrick; his mother, Stanislawa of Poland; his sister, Mariola Huisman and husband Scott of Fort Worth, Texas; his brother Krzysztof Laszczkowski of Poland; his brother Slawomir Laszczkowski and wife Mariola of Poland, and their families; his brother-in-law, Stanislaw Rajski and wife Anna of Germany; his brother-in-law Henryk Rajski and wife Renata of Poland, and their families; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews in Canada,Germany, Poland, and the United States; many close and good friends formed over his lifetime both in Poland and the United States.
