Hello Andy. I'm Carol Stewart. Chris Stewart's mom. I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy to u and ur family of the passing of ur father. I will ALWAYS remember ur dad's kindness and support he gave to me and my family. Ur dad spoke of u often and proudly. 'Dr. J' was r family doctor. He was an awesome person and a brilliant doctor. Dr. J was my mentor for my adult family nurse practitioner. He was an excellent teacher. I learned SO much from him. I saw ur dad often on his rounds and 'tagged' along with him when I could. He was always so kind, caring, and compassion to his patients. They ALL loved him. Correction, compassionate . He came to my home after Chris' service and took Chris' friends to lunch at his club. I still remember that kind gesture. I know that ur dad and Chris r in heaven talking about 'bust a move'. 🤗 I cherish ur friendship with Chris. U two did some funny pranks. Please know that u and ur family will remain in my thoughts and prayers. If u EVER need someone to talk to, I'm at 219-402-1252. 24-7-365. Love, Carol Stewart. R.I.P. Doctor J. We will always miss you. We will always love you. ❤️❤️❤️ . Amen. Carol Stewart

I worked for Dr. J from 1998-2003, the best job of my career. Enjoyed working in his office as one of his nurses, with Michelle, Debbie and Amy. A lot of good memories, Not for sure if his patients realized what all he did for them; he would move heaven and earth to get them what they needed. He will be missed. Terry and family my thoughts are with you all at this time. Loni

I loved Chuck (“rhymes with truck”) more than any man I’ve ever known. I was his golf ball hunting buddy, and cherish the times we shared. I am devastated by his passing, and will never forget him. He is the major reason I chose to live and work here in Michigan City. He touched many here, and the world is a lesser place with his passing.

With great sadness we learned of Chuck’s passing. Our deep sympathies to his loving wife Terry and his surviving children Sarah,Andy,Katy and extended family.. He was a prominent and highly respected physician who focused on always trying to do the best for his patients. He served in many ways in the medical community to support and do his part for the hospitals, colleagues,and related disciplines. We remember his feisty and humorous decor. The memories of outdoor adventures, golf outings ,and the “ king “ of pac man at work live on. Again our deepest sympathies to all and bless you in this time of grief

So sorry to hear of Dr. J'S passing. As a much younger person, I enjoyed waiting on him and his family at Mr. Steak. He always treated us respectfully. Over the years of adulthood it was always nice to run into he and his wife too, at Holly's or Galveston. I consider him an icon in our small town of Michigan City. My sympathy to his family and all those close to him.

I have wonderful memories of Dr.J First as my doctor from a young age until he retired! I was your main babysitter for several years and I traveled on a vacation to Florida with your family! I adored Doc’s compassion and humor! Please except my condolences, he truly will be missed by so many! Love Michelle Losiniecki Miller
Robin Lewis left a message on January 13, 2021:
I was so saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. J. I first met Dr. J at the hospital when he rounded on his patients. He was also my grandma’s doctor. On one visit I took my grandma to, he asked me to come work with him as his office nurse. He was an excellent physician, & truly loved his patients & colleagues, and his family! I had the great pleasure of working for him for over 4 years in his office, & can honesty say I loved working for him! There were many times we would work later, because if a patient had something going on, he was determined to get it figured out, & to leave his patient in a better condition than they were upon arrival. He would go round on his patients before work, at lunch, , & after work. He was very intelligent, caring, & remembered so much about his patients, which I found amazing, as he had a very large practice. He was always so kind, very approachable, sincere, and lived life to the fullest. My life was blessed because I had the pleasure of getting to know & work with him. I have no doubt that he is now an angel in heaven. Even though he was modest, & did not do anything for the recognition, what a legacy he leaves! A truly wonderful man!! Terry & Family, I am so sorry for your loss. May your many wonderful memories help you during this difficult time. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Dr J, was my Dr from the start at Medical Group, he used to tell me I was one of his very first patients, he saw me through thick and thin! Dr J. actually cared for his patients, gave me his home phone number when I was going through the loss of my sister. He was more than my Doctor he was a friend to me and helped me through several major decisions in my life, he gave me advice that helped me decide to make a major move to Maui Hawaii. My condolences to his entire family , he was a great man!

To say he was a wonderful man is just not enough. Chuck Janovsky was the kind of doctor that will be hard to equal, let alone replace. The way he practiced medicine should be a model for all those in the profession. One did not even have to be his patient, he was going to give advice and help in any way he could. His passing is such a loss to this community, to the medical field and most of all, to his family and those of us who were fortunate to also call him a friend. May God Bless his soul.

Dr. J was my family's doctor from the time I was a young child until my mid-20s when he retired. He was a wonderful doctor and treated his patients with personal care. One time he called me personally after hours regarding a lab result and even met me at the hospital for further testing. You don't see that type of care and attention anymore, he was great. He will be missed. Praying for his family as they mourn.

We played for decades with Chuck in the MC Mun Band. Teri, we remember fondly the pizza parties you two often hosted following a concert. Playing clarinet together, one week at rehearsal, after hearing my severe cough, Chuck said "Come on, we're going to the Clinic right now - I'm not playing that thing alone!" We also recall Franklin St parades where there were constant calls from his patients - DR J ! Wonderful memories! With our sympathy and prayers for you, Teri, and your family. Roger and Sue

Dr. J. was truly one of a kind. I have so many fond memories of him. He was an accomplished physician and I owe him a debt of gratitude because he saved my father's life from prostate cancer, which allowed him to live many more years. However, as accomplished as he was being a physician, he was an even better husband, father, grandfather and friend. I hope he is in the great casino in the sky smoking his cigars and playing video poker with Dr. Pejic and all his friends. He will be greatly missed by my wife Diane and my entire extended family. Our prayers go out to Terri and everyone that loved "J". Rest in peace my friend!
Nancy and Tony Mason left a message on January 10, 2021:
We were heartbroken to hear of the death of Dr. J. He was a wonderful Dr. and friend. Our condolence and prayers go out to his family. He was so personable and deeply cared for all his patients and staff, including our family. Being one of his office nurses for 7 years was a daily adventure. :) He truly was one of a kind; extremely intelligent, high energy, funny, adventurous, curious, caring, sociable, and creative. He was a kid at heart. He didn't waste a minute of any day between his practice, his family, his friends, the sports and games he loved, and playing his music. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.
