Jason Richard Suleski died unexpectedly in his home on April 20, 2017.
He was born on November 26, 1988, in Newburyport, Mass. He graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Dover, N.H., and worked towards his bachelor's degree at Loyola University Maryland and St. Joseph's College of Maine. Jason had an uncanny ability to see the good in all people and will be sorely missed by a multitude of friends both old and new. He was an intelligent young man with many talents, but was particularly noted for his artistic abilities and his love of all sports. Some of the very best times of his life were spent on the court or the field with his brother, Ross, and many friends. Music spoke to Jason; he enjoyed show after show in recent months, and it became a pathway to a host of new friends. Jason is survived by his parents, Noreen and Scott Suleski, and his brother, Ross Suleski, of Amesbury, Mass.; his grandparents, John Peterson, Sr. of Lewes, Del., Carol Suleski of Beverly, Mass., and Richard Suleski of St. Augustine, Fla. He was predeceased by his maternal grandmother, Elizabeth Peterson. Jason was a true extrovert and extended family celebrations were a highlight of his life. Jason also leaves behind many beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, and significant others. He is now the honorary official of family football and basketball games, soccer matches, as well as backyard wiffleball tournaments with his friends. He and Mema will be at the final table for all future family poker tournaments.
Family and friends will have several ways to find consolation in Jason's passing. A funeral Mass will be held at Star of the Sea Church, 18 Beach Road, in Salisbury, Mass., at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 29. A Celebration of Jason's life will follow at the Hungry Traveler Restaurant, 98 Beach Road (also in Salisbury), where friends are welcome to come by any time between the hours of 12 noon and 4 p.m. His family has been buoyed by the numerous tributes that have been posted to various social media outlets. Bless your hearts for grieving with us.
