Jack Giacomo DiGesare
Jack Giacomo DiGesare, 88, a resident of Cape Coral, FL since 2009, formerly of Fort Lauderdale, FL, passed away Wednesday, September 25, 2019 in Cape Coral. He was born January 15, 1931 in Brooklyn, NY to Dominick and Dominica DiGesare, now deceased.
Jack was a member of St. Andrew Catholic Church in Cape Coral and Our Lady Queen of Heaven in Fort Lauderdale. He was also a Veteran of the United States Army. He made a living as a mason, and then a teacher; but that was what he did, not who he was. He was a husband who was devoted, loyal, and loving. He was a father who was caring, wise, and present. He was a grandpa who was happily wrapped around the finger of his favorite little girl. He was a faithful friend to many, and a friendly face to all; a man who loved his Brooklyn Dodgers, Frank Sinatra, Boxing, and old movies. He was a Husband, Father, Uncle, Grandpa and Friend. But, to most, he was just “Daddy”. He loved his family with all of his heart and nothing meant more to him than them. Not many knew what a history buff he was and the conversations we shared about movies and time periods will be missed. The memories that he told of his life, family, and get togethers will be treasured forever. He made an impact on so many.
He was simply a blessing. Once you met him you would never forget him. He was unique and one of a kind. We loved him so much; I will never forget my Grandpa, Jack DiGesare. – Giada D.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 63 years, Kathleen DiGesare of Cape Coral; two loving children, Donna Jones of Cape Coral, and Mark DiGesare (Dana) of Cape Coral; two grandchildren, Giada Bella DiGesare, and Richard and Colette Walls; one great grandchild, Rhett Alan Walls; as well as several nieces and nephews.
Jack was preceded in death by two siblings, Gertrude DiGesare and Carl DiGesare.
