Jason Malsky


Age 38 of Channahon, passed away on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at Amita Health Saint Joseph Medical Center with his family by his side.

Born August 18, 1982 in Joliet, Jason Charles is a son of Rita (Fazio) and the late Frederick Malsky, Jr. He was raised and educated in Channahon and graduated from Minooka High School with the class of 2002. Following graduation, Moose worked for ROW Window Company in Rockdale until joining the public works team for the Village of Channahon in 2007. On June 5, 2010 Jason married his best friend, Amanda Steinke at St. Ann Catholic Church in Channahon. Together they made a home and countless memories.

Moose had a big heart with a bigger personality to match. If you were in his presence, you were soon to be his friend. He was the type of guy that always made sure everyone was taken care of and having fun. A true life of the party. Moose was an avid White Sox, Bears and Blackhawks fan. In his free time, he loved playing golf and taking trips to the casino with friends. Moose was a great cook and excelled at grilling and smoking meats. He was a trustee of the Southside Civic Club in Joliet, member of the Dale A.C. and a member of the Operators Local 150. Moose will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Amanda; mother: Rita; brother: Fritz Malsky; mother-in-law: Sue (Patrick) Culligan; father-in-law: Bruce (Sandra) Steinke; brothers and sisters-in-law: Hayley (Joe) Pope, Ryan (Katie) Culligan, Jessica (Jerrod) Hayden, Daniel Culligan, Jackie (Matt) Lindemulder and Mark (Kelly) Judd; his four legged best friend: Buddy, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.

Jason is preceded in death by his father, Frederick who passed on June 7, 2014; maternal grandparents: Chuck and Sophie Fazio, and paternal grandparents: Fritz and Nina Malsky.

Per Jason’s wishes, cremation rites have been accorded.
