Jacyn Pisieczko

By Press Release

VILLAS – Jacyn Pisieczko, a 17-year-old student at Lower Cape May Regional High School, addressed Lower Township Council April 16 to give them insight on living with autism.
Pisieczko, accompanied by his mother Lisa Bryant and his brother Eric, were present to acknowledge Lower Township’s proclamation declaring April as Autism Awareness Month.
Pisieczko was diagnosed with the disorder when he was three. He made his first council presentation at 7 years old.
“Don’t feel sorry for me,” said Pisieczko. “Instead, if you see a child or adult having difficulties, please try to display kindness and compassion.”
Pisieczko said that a number of his peers with autism are facing adulthood with a lack of services available to them and that events like Blowing Bubbles for Autism or Huddle Up with the Philadelphia Eagles helps raise awareness.
