Jeffrey Rosekelly Obituary

Jeffrey William Rosekelly died suddenly of a heart attack in his home on December 9th, 2023. Jeff was born in Sandusky, Ohio on August 1, 1975 to Bill Rosekelly and Karen (nee Corral) Rosekelly. Jeff graduated from Sandusky High School in 1993 as the class valedictorian and from Case Western Reserve University in 2002 with a degree in Materials Science in Engineering. He was a former civil engineer for the City of Sandusky and was currently employed with Resource International Inc.

Jeff married his wife, Maureen (nee Carmel), on June 25, 2005 and they share one son, William. He was a devoted husband and father. Jeff has aspirations to be a  junior high pole vaulting champion, he had a passion for concrete, and an incredible sense of humor. He was an avid fan of Cleveland and Ohio State sports, and a voracious reader. Jeff was a friend of Bill W. and Dr. Bob, and he will be dearly missed by many of his friends. “So it goes…”

Jeff is survived by his wife Maureen Rosekelly, his beloved son William Rosekelly, and “daughter” Chloe of Sandusky, his mother Karen Rosekelly of Sandusky, his father Bill (Tricia) Rosekelly of Huron, his brother John (Karen) Rosekelly of Milan, sisters Heidi Rosekelly and Abby (Chris) Schwanger of Sandusky, father-in-law David (Elizabeth) Carmel of LaGrange, and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and in-laws. 

Jeff was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents George and Betty Corral, paternal grandparents Paul Rosekelly and Kathleen Rosekelly Ezell, and aunts Julie Fisher and Diana Martinez.
