<p class="font_8"><em>Jan Soltysik, known to us as Jas</em></p>
<p class="font_8"><em>July 11, 1954 - December&nbsp; 16, 2011</em></p>
<p class="font_8"><br></p>
<p class="font_8">Jan Adam "Jas" Soltysik, 57, of Reading, PA, died Friday, December 16, 2011 at home.<br>
Born in Reading, he was a son of the late Adam L. and Helen S. (Bar) Soltysik.<br>
Jas is survived by his brother, Larry M. Soltysik and his companion, Charlene Hubbard of Reading, and his sister, Lottie B. (Soltysik), wife of William Camilli, of Muhlenberg Twp.<br>
Other survivors include Jas' companion, Alice Potteiger of Harrisburg, his two nieces, Dr. Jennifer Camilli, fiancée of Marc Scholtyssek, of Dowingtown, and Jessica Camilli and her son, Gavin, of&nbsp; Muhlenberg Twp.</p>
<p class="font_8">Jas was a veteran of the United States Air Force.<br>
He was employed as a stagehand for 36 years. He was an A-1 Audio Technician and a Rigger. He was a Union member of IATSE Local #97 in Reading and Local # 200 in Allentown, and also worked regularly for Local # 98 in Hershey, and many staging production companies.<br>

<p class="font_8"><strong>Remembrances</strong></p>
<p class="font_8">JAS and I had many deep conversations about why life existed, he was great guy and fun to work with, he'd do anything for you and I learned a lot from him ... Cliff</p>
<p class="font_8">Jas was a stagehand legend, one of the best in our craft; he was loved and will be missed by many. Gigs will not be the same without him sharing his years of stories and expertise. Jas taught me how to tie a clove hitch and got me on Local 97's call list. Jas got around and I was always happy to see him on calls, especially in houses I was a stranger in where he'd always introduce me to other local hands. We spoke for a while in the parking lot after the last gig we worked together and I was glad to have that time with him. I'm really going to miss him... Tony</p>
<p class="font_8">This has surely taken me by surprise. Jas was a very knowledgeable and interesting fellow.&nbsp; What I will always remember about Jas is the fact that he always talked to you, whether he knew you or not.&nbsp; The other thing I will always remember was how safety minded he was in what was going on, he never held back.&nbsp; He will be missed. Rest in peace my Brother... Joe Grazan</p>
