What do you call a person who loves jigsaw puzzles?

Dissectologist!

Hats off to Joyce and all other jigsaw lovers – not everyone has the patience of a saint to complete them.

If you love a good jigsaw puzzle then you might be interested to know that the man credited with creating the first jigsaw puzzle was John Spilsbury in around 1760. A mapmaker and engraver he printed maps onto wood and cut them into pieces. However, they weren’t called jigsaw puzzles straight away, instead, they were called dissected maps.
