Archbishop Job Osacky was a bishop in the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). He served as the head of the Diocese of the Midwest from 1993 until his unexpected death in 2009.

From 1983 through 1993 Osacky led the OCA’s Diocese of New England.

In 2000, Osacky was among those OCA hierarchs who received parishes from the Holy Order of MANS.

Osacky is credited with giving much needed impetus to the OCA’s investigation of financial irregularities by asking the simple question in 2006, “Are the allegations true or are they false?”

Also in 2006, Osacky granted a personal audience to Father Vasile Susan, after Susan obtained the permission of Susan’s bishop, Metropolitan Herman Swaiko.
