Jim Mieszala, owner of Hitman Pest Control and president of the Wisconsin Pest Control Association, died on Thursday at age 59.
Mieszala worked in pest control for more than 20 years, having operated his own firm for better than seven years.
Mieszala passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Cynthia, two children, three stepchildren, three grandchildren, and many other family and friends.
In addition to pest control, Jim’s other passion was music. He was the enthusiastic leader and polka musician for the “Chicago Magic” and “Music Explosion” bands.
