Jeffrey J. Swartz, 70, born March 17, 1952, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, at home surround by family. Jeff did not lose his battle with cancer and scleroderma. He lived graciously and courageously with it until the very end. In many, many ways, by inspiring and teaching us, we won his battle in other very important ways. He was a wonderful role model right to the end. No matter what he was going through his smile and kindness shined brightly. He was a faithful servant of the Lord and the Catholic Church. Jeff humbly accepted God's plan for him. He graduated from Bishop Watterson H.S. and attended Ohio Dominican College, Franklin University, and Columbus State. He also graduated from professional umpire school in Florida and went on to umpire for Ohio High School Assoc. for 33 years. He served as Athletic Director for the Diocese of Columbus and was very active in coaching and mentoring children, and he enjoyed every minute. He loved sports and coaching. Jeff is preceded in death by his mother, brother, father, and son-in-law. Jeff leaves behind his adoring wife of 45 years, Sandra, and children, Melissa, Jeffrey II, and Molly. He was a dedicated "Grampy" to Hailey, Tony, Stella, Eli, Isaiah, and Munira; siblings, Ellen (Tom) Weilbacher, Peggy Swartz, Steve Swartz, John (Donna) Swartz, Connie Swartz, Julie (Scott) McDonald and Andy (Margaret) Swartz; brother-in-law Bill Hayes and many other aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends especially Dan Garrick. Our family wishes to thank Jeff's many doctors and nurses at The James, OSU Main Hospital 4th floor ICU staff, OSU Home Health nurses, and Hospice of Central Ohio.

Dear Swartz family. Please accept my deepest sympathy to each on you on Jeff’s passing. I know how much each of you will miss him as he often spoke of how much family meant to him. It was an honor to employ him for our radio stations not only for his professional services but his warm, caring and quite funny sense of humor. Your husband, father and friend to many was a true blessing for those of us who had the honor of knowing and talking to him. Thank you again for notifying me. I will make sure to pray for him especially at Sunday Mass. God bless all of you and may your sorrow turn to joy knowing that Jeff touched so many of our lives

So very sorry to hear this . We played football and baseball together at St Agatha. We carpooled together to Watterson ( his dad, who was a great guy, drove us and put up with Kevin O'conner, Doug Smathers, Jeff DeRoach, Ronnie Amicon and God knows whoever else) and we played football together at Watterson. He loved sports and had a fantastic ability to find the humor in any situation. He got slapped across the face for greeting a priest calling him
Father Ricaroni. I will never forget that. The priest was a prick and deserved it. He nicknamed his younger brother skunk but that did not go over well. He really had a courage of a lion and I truly admired him and the world was a better place with him.
