Jack Ohringer Obituary

OHRINGER: Jack Friedman Ohringer passed away on May 25th, 2020, just two days after his 75th birthday. Jack fought through the worst of his two-week hospitalization and intubation from Covid-19; he was extubated on May 22nd. The day after being extubated, on May 23rd, which was his birthday, he twice told his wife, Jamie that he loved her on a brief FaceTime call before passing unexpectedly two days later.
Jack is survived by his wife Jamie Szabadi; Kara and Zack, his two step children whom he adored; his three siblings Cecia, Lee, and David; and scores upon scores of relatives, lifelong friends, and work associates from across the country.
Jack was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, and was lovingly known as “Mr. Personality,” especially during his Gamma Phi days at Taylor Allderdice High School, from which he graduated in 1963. He had many jobs in the city during his teenage years and his time at Robert Morris College, including working and managing the family business, which was a delicatessen products manufacturer.
Jack enjoyed many interests throughout his life, like dancing (including once on American Bandstand) and owning his own speed boat. He always had a passion for boating and water skiing so he enlisted in the United States Coast Guard and completed his full duty with an honorable discharge.
After the Coast Guard, Jack spent several more years working alongside his parents in Pittsburgh, until he set his sights on new careers in Los Angeles, where he lived for the next 54 years until his death. He worked as a stock broker, a retail manager, a property and shopping center manager, a property developer and finally a contractor, which filled the majority of his professional career.
Jack, “Mr. Personality,” will be sorely missed and remembered fondly for his unique ability to make everyone he talked to feel loved and special.
