“Jack was happiest when he was at home surrounded by his favorite people,” according to his obituary. “He touched the lives of so many; beloved, shining, happy boy, the light of his parents’ eyes, protector of his little sisters, and the star of many hearts. He leaves us smiling through our tears.”
Jack is survived by his parents, three sisters, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and numerous cousins, according to his obituary.
“He was the essence of joyfulness and life,” his obituary says. “You could find him playing outside with his friends, riding his bike at his mamaw and papaw’s and playing with their dog Maverick, playing video games with his dad or playing with anything that was dinosaur related.”
