John Jaszczak has had an interest in collecting minerals since approximately age 4, but became a serious mineral collector at age 13. He earned a B.S. in Physics from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and subsequently earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from The Ohio State University where he studied surface roughening in crystals and quasicrystals. After conducting computational research in materials physics for two years at Argonne National Laboratory, he joined the physics department at Michigan Technological University where he now serves as Professor of Physics and Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education in the College of Sciences and Arts. He also is adjunct professor in the departments of Cognitive and Learning Sciences, and Materials Science and Engineering. He currently serves as associate director for education and outreach in the university's Multiscale Technologies Institute.

He became Adjunct Curator at the university's A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum in 1992, and has served as board chair of the Seaman Mineral Museum Society. Upon the retirement of George Robinson in June 2013, John served as Interim Curator of the A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum, until October 2013 when a new associate curator was hired.
