On Sunday, August 4, 2019, Jackson Garrett Crowder, Jr., loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend, passed away at the age of 58. He was born April 14, 1961 in Augusta, Georgia to Dr. Jackson Crowder and Carole Carson Crowder. He graduated from Columbus High School in 1979 and went on to receive his bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Southern Technical Institute in 1986. He began work at Pratt Whitney in 1992 and considered his co-workers family.

On April 19, 1992, he married Carla Edwards Crowder and together they raised three amazing children. Jack was a gentle, kind man who loved the Lord and fiercely loved his family. He was proud for his life's journey to be an example of God's unwavering love and grace even through trying times. He enjoyed music and playing his guitar with friends. He loved his church family and was a faithful member of Trinity United Methodist Church in Phenix City, AL.

He enjoyed watching the Atlanta Braves and college football. However, the biggest blessings in his life were his three children (spouses) and five grandchildren who put a smile on his face every day. He was very proud of each of them and considered it a privilege to be Dad, Paw Paw and Mr. Jack. It was important to him for his family to have no doubt that he will always be near and wanted them to remember good times while moving forward with confidence of God's love, grace and protection.

Jack was good and oh so kind, I first meet him at Columbus Tech in the early 80's. Little did I know we would be reunited at Pratt and Whitney in 2016. We spoke of Football, Baseball, and most importantly of our need for God. He was insightful and pleasantly genuine . Thank you and the family for sharing his soul divine. He now dwells in Heaven looking after those left behind. No pain can stand in his way for today his wonderful smile ,let it shine ,let it shine.

I was part of the Fellowship Class at John Wesley UMC in Norcross, GA. I met Jack there and loved him immediately! He was always kind and caring and continued to reach out to those that needed it. We had a great deal of fun in that class and lots of good memories. Jack will be missed but will still be with us as that kind, caring person!
