David (Jadz) Jadzak

It is with shock and immense sadness that we announce the passing of David Paul Jadzak, the heart and soul of our family. He will be remembered for his great wit, and corny jokes, kindness, generosity, love of family and friends, athleticism and Polish pride, but mostly for his optimism and heart of gold. Even when he was not feeling the best, Dave always looked out for others, whether he knew them or not, and was determined to share a smile, a kind remark, and a snack bag. Dave leaves behind so many that will miss him: mother, Kathy; siblings, Mark (Nancy), Sue (Michael), Dori, Pam, & Steve (Jill); so many nephews and nieces who will never look at a lottery ticket again without thinking of him: Tracy, Andrea, Chris, Rob, Tyler, Mira, Rory, Jacob, Alyssa, Jillian, Zachary, Madison, Trey and Jordan; along with great nephews and nieces: Erin, Jeremy, Emma, Olivia & Bobby who knew him as Great Uncle Dave, (G.U.D.), a most fitting acronym. Dave absolutely loved being a father to Amanda and Isaiah and was a very proud grandpa to Aiden, Damon, Orion, Apollo, Osiris, Orlain and Athena. Dave was an alumnus of St Gerard Majella, Hillcrest High School & Cornell College. Both the number of childhood friends who remained in touch with Dave through adulthood and all the new friends Dave met throughout his life are true testaments to how genuine and amazing he was. Dave could have a conversation with anyone about any subject. He truly will be missed by so many. Over the years Dave could be found having fun enjoying both real and fantasy sports, playing cards, bartending, bingo, couponing, telling old jokes, making spicy chili or omelets, gambling, and coaching. He would never let you leave without a snack and pop for the ride home. Dave was often found on a softball field in his younger days and a golf course in his later years. Dave was good at so many things, but what he was really great at was being kind to others and never giving up hope for a better future. Perhaps this had to do with his strong faith, or perhaps he was a ‘beer glass half full’ person by nature; either way, he was always hopeful and knew how to find the good in us all. Our family would love to see all his great friends and hear the fun and heartwarming Jadz stories so we are postponing his Celebration of Life until we can gather safely. We will be sure to update with details when we have them. In lieu of flowers, please do random acts of kindness in his memory, and please take care of your own health. To Dave, Y. W. B. T. W. K. W. L. Y. and from Dave, “Have a great day and a blessed tomorrow.”

My brother Donald Stahlak and Dave took one of my friends and I to a Blackhawk game in Tampa vs. the Lightening when I was in college in 1992 or 93. I was a HUGE Jeremy Roenick fan. Right near the end of the first period, Roenick scored a goal and the time on the clock expired. Roenick picked up the puck and took it with him as they exited the ice. We were sitting 4 rows up from where they exited and I was wearing my Roenick jersey. Roenick saw me in his jersey and pointed at me and threw me the puck but the guy in front of me jumped up and blocked me from getting it. He grabbed it for himself. Dave and my brother were upset at what this guy obviously did to me. I was so sad!!! Dave left and when he returned about 5 minutes later he handed me a puck. He bought me a puck and I still have it. That puck means more to me then the one I didn’t get. My brother Donny has ALWAYS had my back and he has surrounded himself with great friends! Dave is one of them. Dave was like a brother to me. Like Donny, Dave had my back that day. Dave is so very loved by our entire family and he will be missed tremendously.
