Jeffrey M. Jayson

Jeffrey M. Jayson - Rochester Cremation

Jeffrey M. Jayson passed away June 13th, 2023 at his home in Rochester, NY. Jeffrey was 59 years old.

To sum up Jeff’s life in only a few paragraphs would be an impossible task – but one we’re still willing to try. Jeffrey Jayson was born to Joseph and Judith Jayson in Buffalo, NY on the bright and sunny day of September 23rd. His favorite hobbies as a child were playing chess, collecting comic books and antique coins. He had a fantastic ability to catch wild rabbits and fish with his bare hands. Jeff was known for his thriving candy business at the Nichols School throughout his academic years and was adored by select teachers.

After graduating from Canterbury School in New Milford, CT, he attended Indiana University for four years. Then he graduated from Catholic University in Washington D.C. where he received his law degree.

Jeff lived in Buffalo, NY but loved to travel the world. When pressed to pick a favorite destination, Jeff would typically respond with, “Thailand”.

Jeff met his wife Merle in Amherst, NY, and was married at St. Louis Church in Buffalo, NY on September 4th, 1999.

Jeff is predeceased by his parents Joseph and Judth and is survived by his wife Merle, daughter Jordana and his siblings Jonathan (Jessica) Jayson, Jennifer (Jason) Dunsby and his favorite cousin Thaddeus Stypowany III. In Jeffrey’s memory contributions can be made to Wilmot Cancer Institute – University of Rochester Medical Center Cancer Institute

    Condolence to the family. He was one of my best friends. We were co-teachers in Thailand. I met Jordana and his Mom Judith when they visited him. We played chess often after our classes. He also brought his dobok and trained along while I’m teaching Taekwondo to my Thai students. And when I was already in the Philippines, He went to Mindoro and stayed at our house. We were like brothers. I will miss him. I will always include him in my prayers. R.I.P brother.

    I am so sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing. He was the best man in my wedding.
    My husband, daughters and I enjoyed spending time with Merle and Jeff in their home in Buffalo. We always looked forward to attending the summer parties in Canada at his parents home. I worked for Jeffrey in his Scottsville Rd. office location in Rochester for several years. May you rest in peace ♥️
