In Loving Memory

Jedd Sereysky, MD, PhD

1984-2018

Dr. Sereysky was a bright young resident in the Harvard Plastic Surgery Residency Program. Raised in Scarsdale, New York, he completed an undergraduate and Master's degree in biomedical sciences at University of Rochester, followed by earning an MD/PhD from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. There, he met his wife, Jessica Sereysky. He completed his general surgery residency at Montefiore Medical Center. Jedd was a compassionate, vibrant, talented resident who clearly left an impact on the teams he worked with. He brought humor and light to the daily responsibilities of resident life, lived and learned with enthusiasm, and was incredibly respectful and kind. Jedd struck everyone he worked with by how grateful he was to have opportunities that he had more than well deserved.  We are grateful for Dr. Sereysky's life and his enthusiasm for learning and helping others. His presence will be tremendously missed.
