Obituary

John Robert Jakubowski, 56, formerly of Skillman, NJ passed away suddenly at his home in Delray Beach, FL on Friday, December 10, 2021. His loss was completely unexpected and his family is shocked and deeply saddened.

John was born in Bayonne, NJ and raised in Jersey City, NJ. In July 2021, John settled in Delray Beach, FL with his family. For over 20 years, John was part of Elliott Investment Management in New York City, NY, where he most recently held the executive role of Construction Investment Manager. He was passionate about real estate and oversaw the renovation and development aspects of Elliott’s investments, including new towers in the Manhattan skyline. His work ethic and commitment to detail was second to none, and he had a knack for relating to partners and professionals at all levels, from junior level construction assistants to large development company CEOs. 

John graduated from Saint Peter’s Prep in Jersey City, NJ and then attended Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ. Anyone who knew John knew he was a caring and generous husband and father. He cherished his family and friends and would do anything for the people he loved. He had a deep love of sports and over the years coached his children’s lacrosse, basketball, and soccer teams in Montgomery Township, NJ. He was a dedicated New York Yankee and Miami Dolphin fan. He loved music, traveling, the beach, wine, movies, and television. From skydiving to jet skiing, John was always passionate about trying new things and embarking on exciting adventures.

Predeceased by his grandfather Chester Jakubowski of Bayonne, NJ, John is survived by his wife Adrienne and children Alexandra, Madison, Christian, and their dog Rosie of Delray Beach, FL; his siblings Tim Stepnowski and family of Monroe Township, NJ, Patty Cestone and family of Little Falls, NJ; his uncle Ron “Pop” Jakubowski and aunt Anne Jakubowski of Monroe Township, NJ; his cousins Stacy Levier and family of Monroe Township, NJ, Leslie Gasparini and family of New Hope, PA.
