Hickson, Jed Patrick, 36, of Mansfield, MA, formerly of Norwood, passed away on December 31, 2020, two years after being diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Jed leaves behind his loving family: parents Edward and Kathleen Hickson of Mansfield, MA (formerly of Norwood, MA), twin sister Meghann Zekan and her husband Peter and daughter Vera of Harrisburg, PA, sister Sara Hickson of Jackson, NH, brother Matthew Hickson and his fiancé Raychel Hamada of Santa Rosa, CA, uncle Jack Hickson and aunt Sandi of Barberton, OH. He also leaves cherished friends and family across the country.

He was a graduate of Boston College High School and Bunker Hill Community College. He loved cooking, LARPing and gaming with his friends. Throughout his two years of cancer treatment, he always maintained a positive attitude and showed true strength of character. He will be remembered as a warm-hearted and generous person who gave of himself to family and friends without a second thought.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a mass and celebration of his life will be held in the spring of 2021 with a date and time to be determined.
