We thank you in advance for your generosity in helping us find a pediatric cancer cure.
Anyone who knew Jack quickly understood he was special. He was a special son and a fantastic big brother to four little sisters. Two of his greatest loves were Captain America and baseball, but beyond the above, Jack’s greatest love was God. As he endured round after round of treatment for brain cancer, Jack was steadfast in his faith, welcoming his next stage while calming those around him.
Jack’s undying belief was infectious to everyone around him and he has helped countless individuals and families feel closer to God as a result of his good work. We pray and hope that his strength can and will be felt by other families with children battling this terrible disease.
…JACK BECAME THE BEST VERSION OF HIMSELF. HE MOVED FROM OUR IDEA OF EXTRAORDINARY, TO GOD’S IDEA OF EXTRAORDINARY. HE NAILED IT! HE DID IT BETTER THAN THE REST OF US, FASTER THAN THE REST OF US.
THE CHALLENGE HE LEFT FOR US IS TO SPEND THE REST OF OUR LIVES TRYING TO CATCH UP WITH JACK.
