Jay Zytnick

ZYTNICK: Jay Zytnick, on Sunday, Oct. 24, 2021. Beloved husband for 25 years of Kimberly Zytnick; loving father of Zachary, William, Matthew and the late Aaron Zytnick; son-in-law of Lynne Erlich. Brother-in-law of Joni Zytnick. Uncle of Michael Zytnick, Amanda Sawyer and Alexa Zytnick. Also survived by best childhood friends Alan (Becky) Scott and Dr. Howard (Michelle) Ferimer.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Jay was a graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School and the University of Pittsburgh as a biochemistry major. A devoted and loyal family man, Jay sacrificed his own dreams to help his family in the real estate business. As one tenant stated, “he had hands of gold” — it was his art, he could fix anything. Full of kindness, generosity, and deeply committed to integrity, Jay was principled beyond reproach. He and his treasured wife overcame adversity and built their own thriving real estate business in recent years. A longtime friend of Dominic Mineo and regular at Mineo’s Pizza, Jay was affectionately known there as “Guido.” Jay will be terribly missed and forever remembered and loved by all who knew him. He was a true Mensch. Services and interment private.
