I don't remember hearing it pronounced and always thought 'ksookai' but have now seen people say it's 'shookai'.
It's going to be Eastern European by way of German anyway. Not japanese. So would presumably follow pronunciation patterns from the area. Though not sure how long a name retains original pronunciation when generations live in a different region.
I was just looking at Chris D's surname Desjardins and thinking I assume that's still got the French pronunciation, Americans haven't warped it have they?
