Jeffrey Manos Obituary

Jeffrey James Manos, 65, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, October 19, 2023, at UH Portage Medical Center. Jeff was born on September 15, 1958, in Newton Falls, Ohio, the son of James and Mary Manos.

Jeff was a graduate from Newton Falls High School, where he enjoyed all sports, especially football. Jeff was a lifetime member of Amvets Post 112, serving in the Marine Corp Reserves for 5 years. Jeff had a career in forestry and had expertise in cutting down trees. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, cooking and loved his Cleveland sports teams. He enjoyed walking, riding his bike and spending time with his friends

Jeff is known for his wild antics, inappropriate behavior, and being a jokester. To know him is to love him. He struggled with mental illness and addiction through the years, but was on his way to recovery. If we can learn anything from Jeff, it is to never give up on someone, take anyone for granted and have compassion for others with similar struggles. Jeff loved his daughters and grandchildren with his whole heart, and his big heart is what his daughters will cherish and remember the most.

Left to honor and cherish Jeff are his daughters, Jennifer (Chad) Jurisch of Diamond, and Lyndsey (Vince) Chiera of Hinckley; his five grandchildren, Ava and Katelyn Jurisch, Lucia, Priscilla, and Carmela Chiera; his brother, John (Lisa) Manos; his Aunt Gladys Hunt and Aunt Penny Davidson; his niece, Mandy McCoy and his best friend and companion, Monica Welton.

Jeff was preceded in death by his parents, James and Mary Holden Manos; his brother, Mike Manos; his aunts, Fay Davis, Norella Beatty, and Bert Van Ekeren; his nephew, Chris Manos; and his great nephew, Dillon McCoy.
