JOSIPOVICS is a Hungarianized name of Slavic origins... CS ending has a CH sound... and J has a Y sound.... so the name would sound like yohseepovich.

But the name may also be spelled Josipowich or Josipovits or Josipovitz... these variants may also begin with Y

Based on this there is a burial record found as follows
Name: Joseph Josipovitz
Death Date: 18 Oct 1918
Burial Plot: Row 3, Lot 33
Burial Place: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
Cemetery: Chofetz Chaim
Cemetery Address: Negley Road, Wilkins Township
Cemetery Burials: 124
Cemetery Comments: Negley Road Wilkins Township Pittsburgh, PA 15235 Synagogue: B'nai Emunoh Congregation 4315 Murray Avenue Pittsburgh, PA 15217 Contact: Saul Spodek 4349 Murray Avenue Pittsburgh, PA 15217

What about the name change? It was not uncommon for people to "share" passports, so it is not unusual to find such situations
