Beloved brother and friend passed away unexpectedly Sunday, February 14, 2021 at his home. Age 63 years. The son of the late Joseph J. and Gloria A. (Adrian) Jersevic, Val was born October 22, 1957 in Saginaw, Michigan. He graduated from Douglas MacArthur High School in 1975 and from Michigan State University in 1980. He was employed as a bartender at numerous venues and taverns in the area. Val was very active in electronics and will be remembered for his inventions and expertise in repair. He was of the Catholic faith. New Year’s Eve was always special to Val as he annually traveled to Times Square in New York to celebrate the New Year, often seen in the shadows of Dick Clark. Val never missed a single Douglas MacArthur/Heritage High School Football Game since 1971, home and away, until 2020. Val was an avid University of Michigan fan and loved tailgating and football.
Surviving are one brother, Roland Jersevic, Saginaw; several cousins and many dear friends.
