The Staszewski Children

Donate Now

Emma (12), Tim (4), Lillian, Nora, and Claire (2 year old triplets) are the children of Joel and Jill Staszewski. In June of 2016, Joel was hospitalized for septic shock caused by multiple infections. He was transferred from Little Company of Mary to the University of Chicago in July. From there, Joel was admitted to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago for PT and OT and continues to undergo intensive rehabilitation today at a live-­‐in facility closer to his home. His children miss their father terribly and hope for a 1-2 year recovery for their dad. Joel is a teacher and swim coach at Richards High School, a WIU and Brother Rice graduate, and a member of Our Lady of the Ridge parish.
