Joseph "Joe" Paul Jurisko

December 17, 1966 - May 2, 2020

Joseph “Joe” Paul Jurisko, 53, of Port Charlotte, Florida died Saturday, May 2, 2020.

Joe was born in Plainfield, New Jersey on December 17, 1966 to Emelia and Jack Jurisko. Joseph graduated from Hunterdon Central High School in 1985. Joe was an auto mechanic and worked for Englewood Ford. Joe moved to Port Charlotte from Tampa in 1999. Joe loved spending time fishing and camping with his family and friends. There was always something that needed fixing in Joe’s eyes. There was never a no when someone asked Joe for his assistance. He would always go above and beyond. Joe enjoyed coaching Emma during her earlier years in Softball. He was also active with Vincent during his Little League years. Joe will be missed by many friends and family from FL, NJ, NC, PA, NY, WY and AK. Joe will always be remembered as a “great guy”.

Joe is survived by his loving family, his wife, Jennifer, daughter Emma and stepson Vincent Farruggio; sister Jennifer and William Flynn; great nephews James and Thomas Jurisko; numerous Aunts, Uncles, cousins’ nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother, Emelia Jurisko, his father, Jack Jurisko and brother John.

Always be kind to one another and help your neighbor whenever the opportunity arises in honor of Joe. A family celebration of Joe’s life will be scheduled later.
