“It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the death of Bayonne Police Department Captain Paul Jamolawicz. Captain Jamolawicz died unexpectedly tonight while on-duty serving our community,” Police Chief Robert Geisler said in a statement late Friday evening.

“On behalf of the City of Bayonne and the Bayonne Police Department, I would like to express our condolences to the Jamolawicz Family.”

Mayor Jimmy Davis, a retired police captain, noted in a Facebook post that Jamolawicz’s career began in 1985, with Davis joining the department the following year and the two quickly becoming friends.

“Paul has also been a longtime businessman in town, serving residents as the owner/operator of the First Street Laundromat and past owner of Manny’s Liquors,” the mayor added.

“Paul’s love of family and this city was evident every day of his life and his friendship will be sorely missed. Please keep Paul’s family in your thoughts and prayers, as well as our great Police Department, who are dealing with their first line of duty death in 52 years. Rest in Peace Paul. 🙏 🇺🇸”

Promoted to captain in February 2018, Jamolawicz worked in the patrol division, detective bureau, the narcotics unit, and the internal affairs unit throughout his career.

He was promoted to sergeant in 1999 and to lieutenant in 2013. He is the recipient of three commendations and seven Excellent Police Service Awards.

Additionally, Jamolawicz was a graduate of New Jersey City University, where he earned a degree in criminal justice.

He is survived by his wife Jeanne, daughter Lori Anne, and son Paul Jr.

  1. Sympathy to yet another American family and the Bayonne community.

    What is victimizing so many of all ages in this SUDDEN DEATH SYNDROME? What schedule of the experimental mRNA was Mr. Jamolawicz given? In Europe this would be investigated.
