Jason John Trawitzki was born on September 27, 1980 to Jeffery Trawitzki and Christine Hetchler in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Jason found his life calling as a Journeyman Ironworker with Local 8 Ironworker Union out of Milwaukee, WI. He was so proud to be an Ironworker, and knowing the buildings and bridges he built would still be standing long after he was gone. He loved to be able to show his family “tours” of the jobs he has worked on, especially in the Milwaukee area; where he was a part of large projects such as The Buck’s Stadium, the expansion at Froedtert Hospital and so many more. He was proud to show his skills. He excelled as a connector, welder and leader. His co-workers could always count on him to come up with solutions in tough situations. His strength was impressive and he could do the impossible. “Big daddy came and got shit done.” He loved nothing more than to be high in the sky on the iron, a true “cowboy of the sky;” making him a legend in the trade.
Jason’s biggest enjoyment in life was spending time with his family. Especially being able to take his two daughters to amusement parks, and fairs, and winning them the biggest prizes. Also enjoyed boating and swimming with his beloved dog Sam. Spending time with family no matter how big or small the event was, being together and putting a smile on their face and seeing the joyment he brought to them. His family is the reason he got up to work every day, and worked as hard as he did. He took pride in being a great father to his children.
In his spare time he enjoyed being in his shop, working on cars, and helping friends and family with fixing their vehicles. Enjoyed remodeling projects and building things. There wasn’t much he couldn’t do, and referred to himself as a “jack of all trades, master of some”. Jason was an avid sports fan, and loved the New York Giants. He had a heart of gold and wore it on his sleeve. So many people were blessed by knowing him.
Jason will be missed by his best friend and love of his life, Amy Hubred and his daughters, Alexandria and Ashlynn, all of Columbus, WI; his parents, Jeff Trawitzki of Watertown, WI and Christine (Kevin) Hetchler of Abilene, TX; sister, Shannon (Darius) Smith of Abilene, TX and Bobby Mitton of Racine, WI; many aunts and uncles; special nieces and nephews; cousins and so many friends. He was preceded in death by his grandparents.
