Sorry for your loss. I remember Mike bringing his Dad to Cox and showing him around. It was an honor meeting him.
Phil,you are like a grampa to me and I love you very much! I remember when Kelli and I were young and you would bring us breakfast or take us out to lunch and to your pool to go swimming. You always made me laugh! :)You will always be in my heart! Love you grampa!
I send my deepest sympathy to the Jaskowiak family and friends. Every time I saw Mr.Jaskowiak he had a bright smile on his face and was ever so friendly. He would light up the room with his kind and gentle spirit. I give high praise to his son Michael for always being there with him for his doctor visits (Dr. S. Caplan/ Dr. M. Sperling). Michael, you had a lot patience and I could see in your father’s eyes that he appreciated you for being by his side. It was a pleasure knowing him and the family at Gastroenterology Associates(med tow) will deeply miss him. God bless. Wanda
We are praying for you and your family to have the comfort and peace of God in your time of loss.

I am so sorry to read about the passing of Mr. Jay. I had him as a teacher at Norview High in 1966-67, and he was a wonderful teacher and person. I have thought about him often over the years, since he made such an impression on me as a dedicated teacher who inspired his students. May you rest in Peace Mr. Jay.
I worked with “Mr. Jay” in the Job Placement office for several years. Sorry to hear about his death. Have obligations on Wed. evening and unable to attend.
My deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Jay. I taught with him at Norview High in the late 60’s and 70’s. He was a very likeable man who was a friend to everyone. He will be missed by all those who knew him.
I think of him in silence,
No eyes can see me weep;
But still within my aching heart,his memory I forever keep.
Miss and love you Dad
Randy, Michael, and families
We are so sorry for your loss. May you find peace in each passing day and comfort in knowing how much he was loved by others.
We’ll miss you so much! We love you and will always remember to celebrate your life. Thanks for being such an important part of ours.
I knew Phil for over 50 years. We had the same job, only in different school divisions. During this time we developed a lasting friendship that would extend well into our retirement years. I always loved the time we could spend together talking and reminiscing about old times. I found Phil to be a very dedicated teacher, always putting his students first. I could always depend upon him whenever I needed advice and direction for serving my students. I will always remember Phil as a kind and warm person who dearly loved his family and always wanted to talk about them. He was a special person and a positive presence to all who knew him. I will surely miss him in time to come. Jack Frith
