Edward Jurkiewicz Obituary

Edward Jurkiewicz, a lifelong resident of Bayonne passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, January 25, 2024, at Bayonne Medical Center with his loving family by his side.  

Eddie worked as a short-order cook for various restaurants in the Bayonne area during his younger years.  His passion for sports inspired him to team up with his brother, Richie, where together they became the owners of "Nick's SportCenter" (proudly named after their father, Nicholas Jurkiewicz) until an unfortunate fire caused its closure in 2003. 

An avid reader of non-fiction novels and biographies of famous athletes, Eddie was indeed considered a walking encyclopedia when it came to trivia on anything sports-related especially when it came to his favorite teams, the L.A. Lakers, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Chicago Bears.

Eddie is survived by his brother Richard Jurkiewicz, brother-in-law, Francis Tedeschi, niece and nephew, Lindsay and Lee Tedeschi, and his longtime childhood friends, Danny Liebman and Steven Leviten.  He was predeceased by his parents, Nicholas and Stella Jurkiewicz, his sister Ann Tedeschi, and his brother Michael. 

A private cremation was held at Rosehill Crematory in Linden, NJ. 

Relatives and friends are invited to a memorial gathering to honor Eddie's life on Saturday, March 2, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. at the Dworzanski & Son Funeral Home, 20 East 22nd Street, Bayonne. 



We seem to give them back to You, O Lord,
who gave them first to us.
Yet as You did not lose them in giving,
so do we not lose him by his return.
Not as the world gives, do you give, O Lover of souls.
What You give, You take not away,
for what is Yours is ours also if we are Yours.

And life is eternal
and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon,
and a horizon is nothing but
the limit of our sight.

Lift us up, strong Son of God, that we may see further;
cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly;
draw us closer to Yourself that we may know ourselves
to be nearer to our loved ones who are with You.
And while You prepare a place for us,
prepare us also for that happy place,
that where You are we may be also evermore.
