Jason “Jack” Avergun passed unexpectedly on July 22, 2020 from a stroke at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Born March 7, 1935 to Eva and Abraham Avergun of Mattapan, he was the last surviving and youngest of 5 siblings; Melvin, Gloria, Phyllis and Jerome. Known as Jackie growing up, he spent summers at the family home in Hull where he enjoyed the company of friends, family and especially his many nieces and nephews.
Jack graduated from Northeastern University with a degree in mechanical engineering and a Masters in business management. He then spent his entire career with York-Borg Warner Air Conditioning Company. He married the late Marilyn (Kaplan) Avergun in 1958 and they had 2 daughters, Andrea Avergun Wexler and the late Elizabeth Avergun. After living in Randolph for over 32 years he moved to Mashpee on Cape Cod. There he was active in his community, started a weekly newspaper and organized a breakfast club and holiday events. He especially enjoyed biking, kayaking, gardening, nature walks, classical music, creative writing and time by the beach. Recently he moved to Linden Ponds in Hingham where he will be greatly missed by his new friends.
Anyone wishing to remember Jack in a special way can enjoy his favorite treat, a scoop of ice cream (or sometimes the entire pint). Don’t forget the hot fudge!
Jack is survived by his daughter Andrea Wexler, son-in-law William and his grandchildren Daniel and Haley. Due to Covid, a private burial was held on July 23 at Sharon Memorial Park. To honor Jack’s memory donations may be sent to the Falmouth Jewish Congregation, 7 Hatchwell Rd., Falmouth MA 02563.
