Lawrence Jezewski Obituary

Lawrence L. Jezewsi, 70, a lifelong resident of Brockton, passed away March 6, 2024. He was the son of the late Joseph and Helen J. Jezewski. Lawrence always aspired to be a priest. He received his undergraduate degree from St John’s Seminary, and although he was not able to fulfill his dream, he remained active and faithful to the church. He taught religious education for 10 years at St. Edward Parish (now St. Edith Stein). 

Lawrence worked to receive a Master's Degree in Pastoral Theology from St. Joseph College in Maine. He volunteered to bring communion at Good Samaritan Hospital and assisted Fr. Visbisky at Saturday Mass as an ordained Acolyte. He also helped the Friars at the Westgate Chapel in Brockton and assisted in funerals at Christ the King. He led a rosary when the statue from Our Lady of Fatima came to our house in 2021.

Lawrence also worked for 40 years at Brockton City Hall in the election office as administrative clerk. Although he retired he was recruited to be election commissioner, which he also enjoyed. He also assisted his sister Denise in her business as a secretary. He joked that he was busier since he retired than when working.  

Lawrence and his sister were inseparable, traveling to the Cape with their dog Casmir. He enjoyed attending Broadway shows, concerts and sporting events such as the Bruins and the Red Sox.  He had an extensive collection of team hats and he enjoyed fooling people who thought he was from that particular city. He also enjoyed playing golf and participating in the tournament from Pope John XXIII Seminary for delayed vocations.  He also enjoyed candlepin bowling.  

Lawrence had a kind and generous heart and those closest to him understood him best. He will be missed and is survived by his sister Denise Jezewski and various cousins in the Brockton area and Florida.
