John  J. Jackowski, 77 

John Jackowski, 77, widow of the late Jan (Christman) Jackowski, passed away early  Thursday morning, July 8, 2021 at home with his family.

He was born January 26, 1944 in Norristown to the late  John Jackowski, Sr. and the late Alice (Murphy) Jackowski. John was raised in Conshohocken, the only boy of four children. As an adult he moved to the Spring Ford area, where he resided in Royersford most of his life.  

He enjoyed working with his hands and was employed for many years at the University of Valley Forge, Phoenixville.  John had many friends in the community and was a member of the Royersford VFW, Spring City American Legion and Liberty Fire Company.  An enjoyable past-time for him was his love for classic cars.  He owned a 1974 Corvette then a 1999 Mustang.  The louder the car, the more he loved it.   

John leaves behind four children:  Leslie Hoopes (wife of Art); Tracey Caltune (wife of Todd), John Jackowski III (partner of Jennifer) and Dwight Jackowski (partner of Lindsay); two sisters:  Laura Terrell, Rose Marie Garman; eight grandchildren and four great grandchildren, along with a host of nieces and nephews.  He is preceded in death by his wife, Jan Christman and sister Geraldine Barbone.
