Obituary of Jerome D. Alsante

ILION - Jerome D. Alsante, age 59, passed away on Thursday, March 10, 2022. Jerome Alsante was an intellect, with a wonderful sense of humor, who had the ability to light up a room with his antics and contagious laughter. Jerome genuinely enjoyed living in our beautiful Upstate New York and spent countless hours hunting, fishing and working on his home and Lakehouse. The “Jer” had a special relationship with all of his friends and there was this comfort and familiarity among them that laid the foundation for so many special and supportive friendships. Born on December 18, 1962, Jerome was the youngest child of Jerome and Rose Marie Alsante. He spent his youth in Ilion, N.Y. where he attended Ilion High School. Jerome graduated from Suny IT at Utica Rome University and spent his long and fulfilling work career with The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Mr. Alsante leaves behind his significant other, Deborah Streeter, who he loved, adored and deeply respected. Deborah Streeter’s two children Adam Bullis and Erin Dempsy and her husband, Jason were always dear to Jerome and an integral, important part of his life. Jerome also leaves behind his three sisters: Deborah Alsante and her husband, Edward Pena, Donna Alsante Murphy and her husband, Bill Murphy, and Dawn Alsante Calhoun and her husband, Ron Calhoun; and several nieces and nephews: Jennifer Murphy, Avery Murphy, Melissa Goff and her husband, Jared Goff, Kyle Murphy, Jack Alamond, Dominick Calhoun and his wife, Chelsea and Salvatore Calhoun and his wife, Alejandra. A special thank you is extended to the staff at St. Luke’s Hospital and especially Alek for their outstanding care and compassion during this difficult journey. We are incredibly lucky to have you in the Valley. The Alsante family extends a heartfelt thank you to our family, friends and neighbors, for their tireless support on our journey with Jerome.
