Anthony “Paul” Jarosiewicz passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 29, 2018. He leaves behind his loving wife, Adrienne, of 23 years, his adored children, Isabella and Joseph, who will miss him every day. He was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Theresa (Malinauskas). He leaves behind his sister Karen, her son, Brandon, his wife Kara, their son Gage; Susan, her husband Walter; and Ann Marie. He also leaves behind his in-laws Richard and June Vingiello; Denise, her husband Bill and children Matthew and Katie; Andrew, his wife Brenda and daughter Genevieve; Michael, his wife Barbara; Rachel, her husband, Andrew and children, Jacob and Maddie. And we cannot leave out his four-legged family members, Sasha, Ellie, and Millie, and ones he’s with again, Zack, Janek, and Miss Murphy.

He was born in Cambridge, MA September 14, 1953. He graduated in 1976, cum laude, from Northeastern University with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. He furthered his education with a master’s degree in criminal justice at Anna Maria College in 1989.

He became a Cambridge police officer in 1984 and went on to become a detective in 1986. Paul was appointed Director of Law Enforcement Programs at the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security in 1990. He helped to distribute millions of dollars to cities and towns for community policing activities. His efforts helped many departments to transition to the philosophy of community policing, fostering trust with citizens. He returned to Cambridge Police Department as Detective/Manager for Apprehension, Dignitary Protection, Homeland Security and Intelligence Unit. He finished his career as Detective/Manager of the Sex Offender Unit in 2007, until he retired in 2013.

Paul will be remembered first as a loving family man. He took extreme pride in his daughter Isabella’s equestrian medals, and his son Joe’s U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corp accomplishments. His family was his pride and joy and of course, he always claimed he didn’t marry his wife, Adrienne, only for her beauty but also for her great cooking.

Although Paul was a smart, tough cop, he will be remembered for his compassion, his bear hugs, and kind heart. He had a wonderful sense of humor and an ability to strike a conversation with anyone and immediately make you feel like a close friend. He cherished his conversations with his son and his son’s friends regarding politics and history and imparting life lessons.

Paul loved the ocean, making frequent road trips to Booth Bay, Maine. He loved trips to the shooting range with his son, Joe and loved his role as equipment manager at Isabella’s barn and horse shows. He had exuberance for life and was rarely still, volunteering at Boxford’s Stiles Pond after he retired, doing jobs in his yard and around the house, and spending time with his children.

In lieu of flowers (especially lilies), spend time with your family, visit the ocean, and make toasts to enduring friendships. Paul would wish this for you.

Please join us celebrating Paul’s life Sunday, January 6, 2019 at the Mackey Funeral Home in Middleton, MA from 1:00-5:00pm.

I can’t begin to express my heart felt gap for Paul. He always left you thinking and with a smile. Adrienne, Isabella and Joey know that Paul is closer to you than you’ll know as your lives go forward. Every time we would meet - he would ALWAYS find a way to inject into the conversation certain aspects of things going on in your lives. And he would say “I’m so proud of them.” And he meant it. Always remember that. Karyn,Conway and myself miss you Paul. The Boda family

It is remarkable when you only meet someone a few times and know the depth of their goodness. Meeting Paul through my brother Dan and sister-in-law Pam, I could honestly say I liked Paul right away. He was one of the friendliest faces in the room. His family was equally kind to us having just met us. We pray for you at this difficult time.
Adrienne, Isabella and Joseph, We we’re deeply saddened to learn of Paul’s death. The loss is immense and we send our deepest sympathy to all of you. Our thoughts and prayers will be for your family at this difficult time. Love, Lois, Dan, Paige and Laura Frasier

Adrienne, Isabella, Joey and family. Paul was the neighbor you always wanted. He was kind and always offered a smile and some good advice - since the first day we met strolling Chloe down the road. I'm so saddened to hear of your loss and echo what was said about how very proud he was of his family. He was an amazing person and will be missed in our community so very much. Bless you and keeping you all in our prayers during this very difficult time. Heartfelt condolences. The Therrien Family

I remember when Adrienne told me she met this police officer who pretended to be her cousin to 'help her out!" at the police station! I was a bit leary but after meeting Paul, I immediately knew how great he was and would take care of my college best friend. Paul was also so welcoming and would make me laugh. To Adrienne, Isabella and Joey, KEEP remembering ALL the WONDERFUL times you all had together. Paul- you will always be in my thoughts and prayers! Maureen Saunders 'Mo" Nyack, NY
I was a colleague of Paul's and his supervisor at the Committee on Criminal Justice. Paul was a great professional and an even better person. He was kind to all and a pleasure to work with. May your memories give you comfort.
I had the pleasure of working with Paul at stiles pond for a few years, and I really looked forward to days he would be there. He loved that pond and took great care of all of the employees. My thoughts go out to his family. M.S.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Paul's family. Paul was an essential part of almost every law enforcement mission the United States Secret Service had in Cambridge right up until his retirement. Paul knew every person in and every inch of Cambridge which proved invaluable on many occasions with the protection of Former Presidents & Foreign Heads of State to Harvard & the Cambridge area. His comic relief and can do attitude was always welcomed and enjoyed by the Special Agents of the district. He will be missed and remembered. Rest in peace Paul from your friends at United States Secret Service, Boston Field Office
I FIRST MET PAUL WHEN I WAS A SGT IN HARVARD SQUARE . HE QUITE OFTEN WOULD WALK THE BEAT WITH ME HIS COMPANY WAS ENJOYABLE AND WE WALKED AND TALKED ABOUT EVERYTHING I KNEW FROM OUR CONVERSATIONS AND HIS GENERAL ATTITUDE AND DEMEANOR THAT HE HAD A INTEREST IN HELPING PEOPLE AND A LAW ENFORCEMENT CAREER. I WAS CERTAIN HE WOULD BE A VALUABLE ASSET TO THE C,P.D, AND ENCOURAGED HIM TO STUDY AND TAKE THE EXAM, HE SURE BROUGHT PRIDE TO THE DEPARTMENT . WHEN I STARTED TO BUILD A NEW HOUSE PAUL WAS RIGHT THERE WITH NUMEROUS OFFERS TO HELP AND HE OFTEN DID. I WAS OUT OF STATE AND GOT A CALL INFORMING ME OF HIS SUDDEN PASSING, TO SAY THE LEAST I WAS SHOCKED AS I’M SURE EVERYBODY WHO KNEW HIM WAS. I IMMEDIATELY CHANGED MY FLIGHT SO I COULD BE THERE TO THANK HIM FOR OUR VALUABLE FRIENDSIP AND TO SAY “GOODBYE”. FOR CERTAIN HE WAS A CREDIT TO ALL OF HIS FAMILY AND THE CAMBRIDGE POLICE DEPT AS I TOLD MY KIDS.....GOD WILL BE GOOD TO HIM....BECAUSE HE WAS GOOD TO EVERYBODY AND ONE OF THE BEST FRIENDS A PERSON COULD HAVE. PAUL IS NOT GONE FOREVER.... HE HAS JUST GONE BEFORE US WITH SINCERE CONDOLANCES TO HIS WIFE, CHILDREN , SISTERS AND EXTENDED FAMILY. THIS IS A BIG LOSS FOR ALL OF US AND FOR SURE HE IS RESTING AS HE LIVED HIS LIFE - “ IN PEACE “ NOT OFTEN BEING LOST FOR WORDS, I CAN ONLY SAY TO HIS FAMILY THAT WHILE HIS LIFE WAS CUT SHORT MUCH TO EARLY, THEY CAN BE THANKFUL THEY HAD HIM IN HIS ROLE AS A HUSBAND, DAD . RUCHARD M. CAHILL. (RET). C. P. D.
Dear Adrienne and her children, I am so sorry for your loss of Paul,I met Paul through his sister Ann when he was single and a bit of a tough guy,I remember when he said he met this beautiful woman and he was going to marry her and as his marriage and his family grew the tough exterior of Paul melted away, the love he had for you and his children he could not keep to himself, always sharing how proud he was of them and how special his wife was to him, my prayers are with you, I will miss him.Brenda Prokowiew
Paul will forever be one of my all-time favorite tax clients. I will miss deciphering his hand-written spreadsheets, debating the legitimacy of some deductions, explaining the inevitable balance due, and then hashing out our differences over a few "man's mai tais" afterward. I have and will continue to miss him. My thoughts and prayers will be with your family. ~ Todd Dyment
