MORRIS COUNTY, NJ – It is with great sadness that Morris County Clerk Ann Grossi informs you of the passing of Deputy County Clerk John Wojtaszek, Morris County Clerk Ann F. Grossi, Esq., said.
John was a diligent and tireless worker on behalf of the Morris County Clerk’s Office and the residents of Morris County. He was a visionary who introduced many new and innovative programs, focused an eagle eye on election details, foresaw and remedied issues, was at ease speaking with politicians at all levels, the press and the public, Grossi said.
Prior to becoming the Deputy County Clerk, John was an educator in the Rockaway Borough School District. During his lifetime, John was an elected official, political mentor to many, possessed an acute political mind, with an encyclopedic knowledge of elections, and an expert in U.S. and New Jersey history. He was a gentle giant who always looked out for everyone and he will be missed, Grossi said.
There is a saying that “anyone can be replaced,” but John is irreplaceable, Grossi said.
“Our deepest condolences are extended to his family and his wife Bette,” Grossi said.
