I worked with Jack for 2 yrs every Saturday at Café Roma. He became like a little brother, always laughing and joking and would do anything for anyone. Not once in 2 yrs did I ever see him mad or sad. Always smiling. At the end of the night I would be like ok Jack you need to make my pizza!!!! He was the best pizza maker ever!!! I will miss your smiling face.... xoxoxo

Our deepest condolences and sympathies to you and your family.

His life was brief here on earth 🌏 but has eternal life with Jesus. Maybe he is preparing food for God and all His Angels.

Please know I am just a phone call away if you need to talk. I have been through the loss of a child and know it is. It easy.

Please know you are all loved and your community is doing remarkable things to help you get back on your feet.

We are lifting you up in prayer 🙏🏻 and will continue to pray as you grieve not only the loss of Jaxon but the loss of cherished belongings that cannot be replaced.

God Bless
