The Mennonite family name, Jutzi, was originally found in Switzerland. Because of oppression, some members of the Jutzi family migrated to France (Alsace) and Germany (Baden and Palatinate) in the 17th and 18th centuries. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries some Jutzi families from both Alsace and Baden chose to immigrate to North America, chiefly to Ontario.

Peter Judzy was a preacher of the Gerolsheim congregation in the Palatinate from 1765 until after 1802, and Jacob Jutzi served as an elder at Neuwied, Germany, 1759-1792 (or 1793) and from then until after 1802 as elder of the Mannheim congregation. In North America the family name is common among both Amish and Mennonite Church (MC) communities. D. S. Jutzi of Tavistock, Ontario, was a long-standing bishop in the Ontario Amish Mennonite Conference, while Rufus Jutzi of Elmira, Ontario, served as the secretary of the Ontario Mennonite (MC) Conference.
