April 8, 1989 ~ August 1, 2022 (age 33)


Michael Cackoski passed away on Monday, August 1, 2022, in Rockville, Maryland, due to complications following a heart attack.

Michael was born in 1989 in Cedar Rapids, IA and he graduated from Xavier High School in 2007.  He holds undergraduate degrees from the University of St. Thomas and graduate degrees from the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University.  

He was passionate about his work as a Group Manager for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in Washington, DC.

Michael leaves behind two sons who are both joyful and adaptable like their dad. He was innately optimistic and he had a lighthearted, goofy sense of humor, with a special talent for making his little boys laugh.

Those who knew Michael well know that he filled his 33 years of life to the brim. He always lived with zest, a love of learning, and boundless curiosity, and his list of interests and hobbies was constantly growing.

Michael is survived by his wife, Caitlyn Cackoski; children, Ambrose and Felix Cackoski; parents, Ken and Bonnie Cackoski; sister, Christina (Jeff) Jarvis; and paternal grandmother, Anna Cackoski.
