The Jimmy Balchune Memorial Fund was created to honor the memory of Jimmy Balchune, who unexpectedly passed away at the age of 39 on October 13th, 2020. A father, husband, brother, cousin, grandson, and a friend to many; Jimmy was a rare individual who unselfishly strived to serve others and always put family first. The Fund was created to carry on his legacy of helping others throughout the Greater Pittston Area.
Growing up, Jimmy attended Holy Rosary Catholic School in Duryea and played football for the Duryea Wildcats and baseball for the Duryea Little League. He was an avid sports fan and loved the New York Giants, New York Yankees, and Michigan Wolverines. His created joy in life was his family. He was a dedicated and loving husband to his wife Amy, and proud father to his son Logan and daughter Mia. Upon passing, Jimmy gave the ultimate gift as an organ donor and saved seven lives.
