Obituary for James Zorrer

James Zorrer, 66, of Hillsborough, died on Wednesday June 12, 2019 at Somerset Woods Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

Jim was born on June 8th, 1953 at Saint Michaels Hospital in Newark and raised by his mother, Eileen Leskowsky, in Paterson. He was a vibrant, sociable, versatile, and talented man who enjoyed gardening, landscaping, painting, cooking, caring for his dogs(Babybear and Red), reading, planning parties at his home in Hillsborough, listening to music, flea marketing, and running a book/CD business online. He also enjoyed traveling to Europe, Mexico and Puerto Rico in his younger years and more recently photographing the scenery and sights in Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and New Mexico.

Jim raised two sons, Jonathan and Jordan, in Linden and worked as a purchasing manager for a large manufacturing company in Rahway for more than twenty years. He returned to school at RVCC, where he earned a degree in Health Information Management Systems leading to employment as a Medical Records Correspondent at St. Peter's University Hospital in New Brunswick.

Jim will forever be missed by his partner and best friend of eighteen years, Jan Steinlauf, with whom he lived in the home they shared in Hillsborough with their devoted dog, Red, who they rescued in 2015.
