James "Jimmy" Sanzone Obituary

With deepest sorrow, we announce that James “Jimmy” Sanzone, 27, of Delaware, Ohio, passed away suddenly on July 25, 2021. 

 Jimmy was born on January 3, 1994, to James P. Sanzone and Doreen Neugebauer Sanzone in Red Bank, New Jersey. He had the unique experience of growing up in different places, including Poland, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. At the age of 10, he moved with his family to Weston, Connecticut, where he first attended Weston Middle School. He was proud to be a captain on the Varsity baseball team in high school. He graduated from Weston High School in 2012. 

 From there, Jimmy attended Ohio Wesleyan University and studied Sports Management. He was a proud member of Delta Tau Delta and was devoted to his fraternity brothers. He graduated with his Bachelor of Arts in 2016. He enjoyed working as an Account Executive for indeed.com in New York City, before later moving to Ohio.

 Jimmy truly loved spending time with friends and family. He was a big fan of the New York Yankees, New York Jets and Brooklyn Nets. He had an amazing capacity to remember sports statistics! He was a thrill-seeker who rode every roller coaster he could, and even parachuted from an airplane. Jimmy was the biggest fan of his mother’s cooking, and he was also proud of being able to replicate some of his Nonni’s recipes. Jimmy was a kind, generous and caring person. He had an immense passion for life and strived to live every day as if it were his last. His big heart made a positive impact on everyone he encountered. His family and friends will miss him more than words can say.

 Jimmy is survived by his parents James and Doreen of Bluffton, SC; his sister Kaitlin (Ryan Inzana) of Irmo, SC and his brother Conner (Alexandra) of Mars, PA. He also leaves behind his paternal grandmother, Maria Sanzone of Parlin, NJ; his nephew Teddy and niece Caroline of Irmo, SC; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends.

 Funeral arrangements are being handled by Sauls Funeral Home of Bluffton, SC. Family and friends are invited to visit with Jimmy’s family at Sauls Funeral Home on Tuesday, August 3rd from 4-6 pm. The Funeral Mass will be held on Wednesday, August 4th at 10:30 am at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church in Bluffton.  Burial will follow at Low Country Memorial Gardens after the Funeral Mass.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you consider donations to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
