Dr. Jerry F. Zajac, D.C., D.N.–or as many know him, The Z-Man, Dr. Z., or Jer–entered the Kingdom of Heaven Wednesday, October 7, 2020 at age 67. He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Susan Zajac; his six darling children: The RAZ-ma-tazz, Sweetheart Sarah, Zachy, Natey, Peanut, and Pikachu, (Rachel Zajac, Sarah Zajac, Zach Zajac, Nathan Zajac, Megan Salmon, and Mikey Zajac); his two sisters: Auntie Carolyn and Tessy, (Carolyn Nordoff and Theresa Skurka); and many cousins. He is preceded in death by his parents Francis and Mildred Zajac, and brother, James “Jimmy” Zajac. The Z-Man was born May 27, 1953 in East Chicago, IN. He is a 1971 graduate of George Rogers Clark High School in Hammond, IN. In 1976 he completed his Bricklayer Apprenticeship with Local Union Number 6 of Indiana and went on to earn his Journeyman’s card. He joined the Hammond Fire Department in 1978 and served as a Firefighter for five years and an EMT for fifteen years. He retired in 1998 with the rank of Firefighter First Class. During his time on the fire department he enrolled in Chicago National College of Naprapathy, and in 1988 at age 35 became a Doctor of Naprapathy. He continued his education at National College of Chiropractic, becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic after passing his board exam as a new father in early 1991 – this guy has done it all. He opened his practice, Chiropractic Healthcare Plus, in Highland, IN, and after a few years he moved office locations and changed the name of the practice to Advantage Chiropractic, to be at the top of the phone book, of course 😊. He married on April 21,1990, and together with his wife raised their six darlings whom he loves endlessly. Jerry is passionate about learning and working hard, being outside on glorious sunshine days, reading all holistic healthcare literature at least twice, sharing that holistic healthcare wisdom with his family, friends, and patients, and bird watching cardinals, robins, blue jays, and “lovey doveys.” He loves to hunt and fish (catching many “Willow Slough slabbers,” as he calls them), camp outdoors, take walks, and hike at the Indiana Dunes. He is kind, affectionate, loving, energetic, and a goof who finds purpose in helping others. Most of all, Jerry loved God. He spent every morning in scripture, reading and praying. The Kingdom of the Lord is now a healthier and funnier place. Visitation and service is being held on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home (8178 Cline Avenue, Crown Point, IN) from noon to 4 p.m. Central Time. Visitation is set from noon to 3 p.m., with the service to follow from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. The service is going to be livestreamed. Please log on a few minutes prior to 3:00 pm at www.facebook.com/ChapelLawnFuneral Due to the current conditions of Covid-19, masks are required for attendance.

I am proud to have had the oppurtunity to meet such a nice and caring person. Jerry was always polite and helpful and had such a positive outlook that you ultimately looked up to him and admired his positivity. I will always remember Jerry and may God bless his family during this difficult time.

I first met Jerry at Station 8 Hammond Fire Dept., it was my very first day working the ambulance, boy was that an experience I will never forget! Things kept going wrong for me, almost to the point of it being a classic comedy, Jerry was sooooo patient, sort of! He polished his brown leather boots then put them in the oven to bake the polish in, I thought WOW, who does this, Jerry Seeds Zajac, that’s who, LOL! We called him seeds because he was always eating seeds, healthy seeds like flax seeds. I learned a lot from him that day, he was all about eating healthy foods, he was definitely old school! I remember when he got married, had his kids and when he became a doctor, he helped a lot of people with their backs! He had amazing strong hands, because of him I was able to avoid back surgery! I will always cherish the memories I have with Jerry! I know he loved his wife and his beloved children, my sincere condolences to Susan and family, Jerry definitely touched and helped a lot of people and he will surely be missed!

I want to extend my deepest sympathies to the Zajac family. Jerry was a longtime friend of mine and my family’s. We went on fishing and hunting trips together and shared many good times. I was shocked and deeply saddened when I heard of Jerry’s passing. Many years ago Jerry treated me for a back injury. Where many before him couldn’t relieve my pain, Jerry took a different approach and was able to get me to a level of comfort that I still have today. I’m eternally grateful for knowing Jerry as a friend and a patient. And he loved his family dearly always talking about their accomplishments. Prayers for the Zajac family ❤️

I loved working with Seeds that’s what we called him. He was very particular about hand placement on the steering wheel. Always a genuine gentleman. When visiting his office the first thing I would say Seeds what’s the cheapest thing for sale. He pointed over to his pillows. I said I’ll buy one. After my treatment He said hey I want to show you my vitamins. I said I’m good bought a pillow. That’s a fireman thing. Jerry was so proud of his family! I remember seeing him at cross country races with his kids . Boy would he beam up. Seeds always kind and helpful to us Firefighters brothers and sister. Love you my brother. You now Rest In Peace. Your faith carries you to the promised land.
