Jonathan “Jaybird” Jankowski July 4, 1960 - January 7, 2021

Jonathan Jankowski, 60, of Chicago IL passed away on Thursday January 7th, 2021.  He was born on July 4, 1960 the son of John and Christine (Babik) Jankowski.  Jonathan was admired and loved by all who knew him.  He could make even the most hardened of us laugh.  His favorite thing in the world was Halloween as it brought out the young spirit within him for he trick or treated up until he last year of his life.  The most important thing in the world to him though, was the love of his life, Janet.  Unfortunately he lost her 18 years ago and since her passing he was never the same.  Even a dejected Jonathan still had the brightest personality in the room.  He spent his days working in the comic book shop owned by his brother, Big John.  His quirky sense of humor will forever be missed. Sky is the limit, Jaybird.

He is survived by his cherished daughter Jacinda Jankowski; dear mother Christine Babik; his devoted brothers: Big John (Eva), Jeff, Jerry, Jevon, Justin, Josh, and Jraden Jankowski, and his dear sister Jennifer O’Connor; two grandchildren Isaiah and Jonah, as well as multiple other family and friends.

He is proceeded in death by, the love of his life Janet and his father.
