John A. Dorsi (John Angelo Dorsi) – Obituary January 26, 2024

Born August 13, 1946

Son to John W. Dorsi and Lucy Dorsi

It is with great remorse that I am announcing the passing of my father John A. Dorsi on Friday evening at St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, NY.  I was fortunate to be by his side as he passed away peacefully after a long battle with multiple ailments.  The entire staff and volunteers at St. Francis Hospital were the most professional and caring staff I’ve ever been around. John was the founder and CEO of JAD Specialty Co., Inc. that was founded in 1970. 

John fought every day to support his business, family and friends to always be there even when the challenges seemed insurmountable. He struggled with multiple medical health challenges and physical limitations but his will to live and be there for his family was an inspiration to me.  He was an amazing father, grandfather, business partner, role model, friend to all who knew him.

He was a huge supporter of the US Manufacturing Industry.  He taught me many of the life skills that have made me the person that I am today. His leadership, as well as hard work inspire me in everything I do.  My father is a past President of the NTMA (National Tooling & Machining Association) local chapter, CEO of our Company. He was heavily involved in creating the Tooling & Machining Institute in the 1980’s to train people in a wide range of manufacturing jobs.  During his time as President, he also had a meeting with George H. W. Bush 41st US President to discuss US Manufacturing and the US Defense Industry for the New York and New Jersey region.

My family, his friends, employees and all who knew him will miss him tremendously.

In Lieu of Flowers, the Family has requested those who wish to express sympathy to consider making a donation to St. Francis Hospital Foundation in support of the Nursing Endowment.
