James Joseph McDuffie, II, affectionately known as J.J. or Mac passed away on January 24, 2024. He was born to Sara and James McDuffie, MD, in Washington, DC July 8, 1950.


J.J./Mac attended St. Marcus Lutheran School and Wisconsin Lutheran High School where he participated in football, wrestling, track, jazz band, marching band, L Club, and Electronics club. He attended the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, the University of Wisconsin - Madison and MSOE.


J.J./Mac had many interests and loves including scuba diving, auto racing, guitars, music, collecting coins, collecting miniature race cars, greeting cards, photography and much, much more. He loved watching old TV, westerns ☺, NCIS, Miami Vice, Law & Order and of course, Wisconsin Badgers football, Milwaukee Bucks and Green Bay Packers. He totally enjoyed Pepsi, Gummy Life Savers, Snickers, grits, Chinese food, pizza w/anchovies, peanut M&M’s & popsicles. Later in life, he developed an interest in the medical field, so he went back to school for nursing. Unfortunately, because of health issues he wasn't able to finish.


Being predeceased by our parents, and our brother David, J.J./Mac is survived by sisters Ruth (Chuck Marks) and Tamye (Dave Metzger). He was uncle to Alex, Kaelyn, Sara, Aliea, Jessica, and furry nephew Ziggy. He is further survived by his wonderful home caregivers, Gigi and Demetris and many, many close friends and racing buddies.


J.J./Mac was a hard and dedicated worker. He leaves a legacy of love, laughter, and service. His presence will be profoundly missed but his memory will continue to be a beacon of warmth and joy for all who had the pleasure of knowing him. 


Celebration of Life to honor J.J./Mac will be held on Saturday, February 10, 2024.


Visitation at 10:00 a.m. and Service at 11:00 a.m. at Divinity Divine Ev Lutheran Church 900 E Henry Clay St, Whitefish Bay, WI 53217.


J.J./Mac wants his friends and family to know that he loves you all, remember to keep smiling and I will see you on the other side! ‘At my celebration of life, have a good time and realize death is only the beginning of a new life…’ ❤️


Should friends desire, donations may be sent to The National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin, in remembrance of James J. McDuffie, II.

Jim, I knew you best from my two years of football, freshman and sophomore.  I hated every minute of football, but you were a bright spot on the field, kind of an inspiration, along with some of our other teammates.  After the second season I regrettably lost contact with you.  I see from your obituary that our interests overlapped somewhat, and you and I could have talked guitars and coin collecting.  And grits!  There is no finer food!  I plan to catch up with you in the next life.  Mark Porinsky
