Jack Cassidy

Nov 29, 1938 - Jan 04, 2024

East Pittsburgh, PA

Of East Pittsburgh, age 85, passed away on Thursday, January 4, 2024. Born the son of the late Hugh Cassidy and the late Margaret (McClelland) Cassidy. Beloved husband of the late Mary Kay (Neafsy) Cassidy. Loving father of Erin (Bill Gradischek) Cassidy. Cherished grandfather of Jack and Dominick. Dear brother of Valerie (the late Edward) Uhrin. Preceded in death by brothers, Hugh “Buzz” (the late Ruth) Cassidy and George (the late Jean) Cassidy. Brother-in-law of Denny (Cheryl) Neafsy. Uncle of Courtney and Katie Neafsy and special friend of JoAnn Ferraiuolo. Jack was a proud 1957 graduate of East Pittsburgh High School. While in high school, Jack was a standout athlete, having been a four-year letter in football and basketball. His basketball accolades consisted of scoring over 1,000 points over his four years, serving two years as co-captain, as well as being a part of the historic 1956 WPIAL Championship team, who also went on to be PIAA State runner-up. Jack displayed individual heroics in that year’s Western PA final at Westminster College. The Shamrocks were trailing by two points with time running out. Jack stole the ball, dribbled the length of the court, was fouled, and scored as the clock struck 0:00. He calmly sank the free throw to seal the Shamrocks’ trip to the State Final. His athletic prowess led to his induction into the PA Sports Hall of Fame, East Boros Chapter, class of 1998. Upon graduating high school, Jack proudly served his country in the U.S. Army. Jack partnered with his brother-in-law and friend, Denny Neafsy, and opened Jack and Denny’s Bar in East Pittsburgh, which quickly became a frequented establishment on Bessemer Terrace. In 1985 Jack was sworn in as a police officer in East Pittsburgh. He devoted many years to the department and was eventually promoted to Chief of Police in 1998. He humbly served his community until his retirement in 2008. He continued to work as a UPMC Police Officer until his final retirement in 2015. While on duty, Jack received numerous awards for his dedication to East Pittsburgh, none more rewarding than the Law Enforcement Purple Heart, which he received after entering a burning home to rescue a family still inside. Jack’s protective nature was evident in his love for animals. He founded The Borough of East Pittsburgh Animal Fund during his tenure as chief of police. The fund, with the help of Officer Lori Payne, Samantha Ginsburg, and his daughter Erin who shares his passion, saved countless animals in the community. His dedication to animals began at home with his love for his cherished pets including McFluffin who never left his side, and his beloved dogs Peanut, Sophie, and Floofer Doo. Despite all his achievements, Jack was never boastful. He would tell you that his greatest accomplishments in life were providing for his family, teaching new police officers to treat everyone with respect and dignity, and changing the fate of the many animals he saved over the years. He wouldn’t wear a white “Chief” uniform shirt because he “was no better than his guys”. He would tell you that “the sun rose and set with his daughter” and he made sure she knew it every day of his life. Friends are welcome Saturday, January 13, 2024, from 1-2:30 p.m. at Patrick T. Lanigan Funeral Home & Crematory; 700 Linden Ave. at Cable; East Pittsburgh, PA 15112; (412) 824-8800, where a Blessing Service will be held at 2:30 p.m., followed by a presentation of Military Honors. Memorial contributions may be made in Jack’s name to The Borough of East Pittsburgh Animal Fund, 813 Linden Ave., East Pittsburgh, PA 15112.
