Jack J. Lenze, age 77 of Elizabeth, died on Wednesday, May 29, 2024 in New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Hospital in Manhattan.  He had recently made the long trip from his condo in Hallandale, FL to New York, with plans to relocate to Westchester County to spend his days with his daughter Heather, his son-in-law Nathan, and his grandchildren, Quinn and Bear.  He was looking forward to watching Bear play soccer, treating Quinn to ice cream cones, spending time in the Catskill Mountains, and being a short train ride away from Reston, VA, where he loved to visit his son Mike, daughter-in-law Audrey, and best buddy and grandson Luca. 

Born January 20, 1947 in Munhall, PA, Jack was a son of the late Anthony and Rena (Martorelli) Lenze.  A retired science teacher for the West Mifflin School District, Jack was a member of Sts. Joachim and Anne Parish - St. Michael's Church.  Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his beloved wife, the late Kathleen A. (Zewe) Lenze, who died on June 29, 2023—whom we know was waiting for Jack with a big hug and a slice of homemade berry pie at the gates of Heaven.
