Husband, father, grandpa, uncle, mentor, hero, and friend – went home to God Saturday, November 11, 2017 with his wife Jeanne at his side.

Ron Jaskolski earned his first professional degree in law in 1965 and his doctorate of law in 1967 from Marquette University Law School. Upon graduation, he entered private practice. Since 2000, he has been partners with his son, James, in Jaskolski & Jaskolski, S.C., located in Greenfield. As a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, Ron helped to raise a family of whom he can be proud. He and his wife Jeanne are the loving parents of four children, grandparents to 13 grandchildren and just recently celebrated the birth of their first great grandchild.

Ron is survived by his wife of 53 years Jeanne (nee Keefe), children Anne Brannon, Marey (Greg) Riemer, Jim (Amy) Jaskolski and Sara (Chris) Barger.  He was “gramps” to Caitlin (Andrew) Tilley, Chelsea (Fakataha) Molitika, Kinnsael, Avonlea, Lisdon and Padraic Brannon, Alex and Sam Riemer, Charlie, Olivia and Ryan Jaskolski, and Barrett and Cullen Barger. Ron also loved his newest little “schnudek” Karsen Tilley, his great granddaughter.

Ron has been a member of the State Bar of Wisconsin since 1965 and past board member of the Family Law Section of that organization. Among his memberships are the Milwaukee Bar Association and American Bar Association, of which he was a member of the Custody Committee of the Family Law Section. He was appointed circuit court commissioner by Milwaukee County Judge Michael Skierawski and reappointed by Judge Victor Manian,

Ron is a former fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and a past president of the Wisconsin Chapter. Ron won many awards over his life.  In 1994, Ron was named Polish ‘American of the Year by the Polish National Alliance-Milwaukee Society.  In 2013 he was the “Citizen of the Year” for the Wisconsin Justinian Society of Lawyers.

Ron was active in the Milwaukee and Polish communities. He is a past president of the Milwaukee Society of the Polish National Alliance, a longstanding member of the Southside Business Club, a charter member of the International Mushroom Pickers Society, director of St. Joseph’s Foundation, past president and co- founder of South Community Organization and a former board member of Thomas More High School. He also represented the Spanish Center in Milwaukee on a pro bono basis for more than 10 years,

Ron believed in life and his practice that “kids come first”. He lived his life in that capacity being secretary of Clinicare Corporation, which treated emotionally disturbed children, coaching and sponsoring numerous youth sports, and being co- chairman of an annual St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital Golf Outing, which raised over $1 million for the treatment of children with cancer.

The measure of a man’s success can be taken in many ways. By any definition of the word, Ronald Jaskolski was clearly a success and loved by many.
