Christopher Mark Blasky


   Christopher Mark Blasky, 50, a dedicated and proud police officer, loving husband, and devoted father unexpectedly passed away on May 26, 2024 at his home, an unmeasurable loss for his family and the community in whole.

   Chris’s journey began in Elmhurst, where he was born to James and Marsha Blasky. He attended York High School, graduating in 1992, and went on to further his education at Harper College. His passion for service led him to the Army, where he served with distinction as a Sergeant in the military police. In 1996, Chris met the love of his life and forever best friend, Kristi Devine, thanks to the encouragement of his best friend, Kris Mac Martin. This serendipitous date blossomed into a beautiful marriage that lasted over 25 years. Together, Chris and Kristi built a loving home and welcomed three wonderful children, Madison, Reagan, and Nixon. Chris’s love for his family was boundless, and being a father was his greatest joy and accomplishment. After his military service, Chris continued his dedication to public safety by serving as a police officer in Elmhurst for over ten years. His kindness, warmth, and genuine care for others made him a beloved figure among his colleagues and the community. Chris’s career took him to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) department, where he continued to serve with the same dedication and integrity. Chris’s family was the center of his world. He was a constant source of support and guidance for his children, always encouraging them to strive for their best. He cherished every moment spent with his parents, James and Marsha Blasky, his sister Jennifer and her husband Robert Greene ” Barron”, and their children Lauren and Nathan, as well as his brother Gregory Blasky. Chris’s Labradors, Cassie and Kimber, held a special place in his heart, and he loved them as deeply as his family.

    Chris’s presence was a beacon of positivity and joy. He had an extraordinary ability to lift the spirits of those around him, whether through his work or his everyday interactions. His legacy of kindness, dedication, and love will continue to inspire all who knew him. Though Chris has left us too soon, his memory will live on in the hearts of his family, friends, and all who had the honor of knowing him. We celebrate the life of a remarkable man who made the world a better place with his presence.

   In lieu of flowers, the family kindly asks that donations be made for Reagan’s education. As the account is in process we kindly ask for checks to be given to Kristy. Rest in peace, Chris, we will take it from here.
