As an adventurous young man, he immigrated to the U.S. in the early 1970s with one suitcase and high hopes, settling in Edison, NJ. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was a dedicated tool and dies maker who owned a machine shop (J.S. Tool, LLC) in Rahway, NJ for 29 years. Jan worked hard and was motivated to succeed. Jan enjoyed traveling, sports, bowling, playing pool and cards. He was a man with a natural high who told good jokes and stories. Jan was from a large family, the youngest of 8 siblings: Zofia, Tadeusz, Stanislaw, Janina, Teresa, Regina and Ignacy. He is survived by his wife of 33 years Danuta (Donna), son Mark with wife Monika along with grandchildren Julian and Daniel, and daughter Barbara (Basia) with husband Josh. Jan will be missed dearly.
