A Glen Mills man who was a leader in the field of physical therapy died Nov. 21, writes Bonnie L. Cook for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Jeffrey “Jeff” Ostrowski, 58, was born in Wilson, N.C. and raised in Lancaster.

He graduated from Juniata College, where he met his wife, Margaret “Peggy” Evans. They married in 1988 and raised a son and daughter in Glen Mills.

 Mr. Ostrowski became a physical therapist to help patients live a pain-free life after an accident, injury or illness.

He co-founded Excel Physical Therapy in 1990 and was a managing partner of E & A Therapy Inc., a merger of Excel and Apex Physical Therapy.

“He was usually the smartest guy in the room, yet never made anyone feel inadequate. Jeff was easy to love because he made you like yourself,” said Joe Ruhl, a managing partner and his longtime friend.

Mr. Ostrowski served as southeast district director of the Pennsylvania Physical Therapy Association and director of the American Physical Therapy Association’s private practice section.

He was a Drexel University adjunct professor and editor of APT Association’s magazine, Impact.  

In 2019, he was awarded the Association’s Service Award.
