There are some who bring a light so bright to the world that even after they are gone, their light remains to shine. Jack’s greatest joy, besides his love for his family, is music. His passion for music brought happiness to everyone he met. He ran the soundboard for the Theatre Department at Kirkwood High School and was going to continue his passion at Missouri State University next Fall.
Jack was a superstar whose star was too big for one body. Selfless in death, as he was in life, he shared his light and gave new life to six individuals through organ donation. His star now shines in them and in the sky. The amazing staff at St. John’s Mercy Hospital in St. Louis named a star in his honor. The brightest of all stars, Jack Fearn, is located in the Bootes Constellation.
Services for Jack were Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2019, at Holy Family Catholic Church with Rev. Jeffrey Laible, Father Thomas Taylor, Father Eddie Voltz, and Monsignor Jack Costello officiating. Visitation was from Tuesday, Oct. 1, at Fricke-Calvert-Schrader Funeral Home in Lincoln, Illinois. Burial at Elkhart Cemetery followed the service. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be directed to The Jack Fearn Scholarship for Technical Theatre which will provide an ongoing scholarship to a graduating senior from Kirkwood High School pursuing Technical Theatre Majors in college.
We ask that you find the brightest star in the sky at night and pray to Jack.
