Obituary: Jed Stephen ‘Kos’ Kosmoski worked with college baseball, hockey teams

Jed Stephen “Kos” Kosmoski never batted for Concordia University, St. Paul’s baseball team and never shot a puck for Hamline University’s men’s hockey team.

Yet Kos, through his infectious enthusiasm for his teams and their players and his willingness to do tasks great and small, surely became a most valuable player over the years in St. Paul. It was his personality, his joy, his selflessness that makes the void he’s left behind all the more painful, said longtime Concordia baseball coach and Athletic Director Mark McKenzie.

“Somebody said, ‘Just think of what Concordia and Hamline did for that young person,’ ” McKenzie said of the man with special needs who started working part-time at Concordia in 2009. “But, really, think of what he did for them.”
