Jim Kuzowsky grew up about a half mile away from Kensington and Allegheny avenues not knowing his father’s true identity nor seeing much of his mother. After he was born three months prematurely in 1980, his mother Debbie dropped him off at a crowded home on Boudinot Street. She “came and went, continuing to do whatever, whenever,” Kuzowsky recalled. He was raised by relatives – primarily a cousin named Melissa Glenn, who was 13 years old at the time – and a community that would ultimately, and luckily, meet the “it takes a village” challenge.“I had very little to no involvement with her,” Kuzowsky said of his mother, during an interview last week in his Port Richmond living room. “She had seven children, and I’m the oldest.
