Well it has not been 10 some years since Jack's passing and I still think about our friendship that started over half a century ago now. Jack was as good of a friend any young boy could ask for. Thinking of the Marston family and wishing you guys all the best.
Always thinking of you, we miss JJMM so much. Please let me know what I could do.
I will miss you for the rest of my life and so will thousands of others. You were the one person who all ways kept me in line and was the best coach anybody could have! Thanks for the wonderful memories
in loving memory of Jack H. Marston II
He would have to be one of the nicest fathers i have ever met. The marston boys are my friends and they always knew that their dad was the best, alive or not, he ways always there for his children. He was also there for his team or anyone else he knew, he was always there. I was once on his soccer team when i was real little, he was just the most influencing coach i have ever met. I miss him. And i know how maney other people do too.
I'M SENDING MY CONDOLENCES IN THE LOSS OF JACK, I LOST MY DAD JOHN JACKSON BLEVINS THREE YEARS AGO AND MISS HIM DEARLY I NEVER WAS ABLE TO GET TO KNOW MY DAD BUT I FEEL HE WOULD OF BEEN A LOVING FATHER,AND OFTEN WONDERED IF I'D EVER BE ABLE TO MEET MY WHOLE FAMILY, I'VE MET TWO COUSINS TERRY BLEVINS AND BETTY BLEVINS,I CANT SEEM TO GET AHOLD OF ANYONE SO I SIT ALL ALONE IN CALIFORNIA GAZING INTO THE DISTANCE WITH THOUGHTS OF WHAT IF AND WHY?
SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS...SINCERLY
Mr. Marston will always be remembered, it was a terrible loss. I pray for the Marston family
Mr.Marston was by far one of the nicest people I have ever met. He was a great dad to his kids and an amazing coach. He had a way of making you feel like the best player ever(even if you weren't). I know that he will still be here when I need a coach.
Jack will always be remebered as a friend, a father, and a good person.
The Marston Family -
Jack was a fine a man as there ever was and we ever knew - and touched us all.
The Blevins Family - Riley, Henry, Elly & Brad
I enjoyed having you as a Phi Tau
Fraternity Brother at Centre. I
truly appreciated your friendship
and our rides home and back to school with Bill O'Donnel will always be remembered. I will
always remember you as a friend. I could tell that you had the same
great personality when I contacted
you by phone a few years ago.
God bless you.
I will always remember Mr. Marston and all of the happiness he brought to his family and everyone around him. He was a great community member, person, and father. I have some great memories of Mr. Marston. My fondest memory was when he took Jenn, Jessica, and me to the Chicago Sox game. It was an awesome time, and I will never forget it. Although it has been hard for the Marston family, I know that Mr. Marston is very proud of each of them and their many accomplishments. Mr. Marson is a person who I was fortunate enough to know, and who I will never forget. Mr. Marston and the entire Marson Family will forever be in my thoughts and prayers.

Mr. Marston and the Marston family-
When i first heard of the passing of Mr. Marston, it was unreal to me. It put me in shock that such a great man who touched many many people, could be taken from his family and all the people he touched at such a young age. The memories i have of him from when you lived next door to when you moved away. They are all good ones. I remember how Mr.Marston would be my soccer coach and how he would always make it fun, and how he would be my friend all the time. Jack and i have been friends for a while and i hope it always stays that way. Mr. Marston, Jack, Jen, Matthew, Michael, and Mrs. Marston you are always in my and my families prayers!!!!!!!!!!
-Sean and the McMahon Family
Mrs. Marston, you and your family are in my prayers. I will always remember Jack and all he he has done for environmental health information in Kentucky. May God bless you and comfort you and your family.
When we first heard of the passing of Jack, I could only relate as a father and husband......because I never met him or his family. I had only seen him in church, in stores or around the athletic fields, but never knew his name. In the days that followed his death, I spoke to dozens of people who knew exactly who he was and how he touched their lives in 1 way or another. People asked me if I was going to the wake or going to participate in the run and I said I really didn't know the family. As the days passed, I felt compelled to want to get involved somehow. My wife and I aren't runners but our whole family decided to either walk or run the race. On the morning of the race, it was cool and foggy, but you could tell it was going to be a perfect day. Hundreds of people started to gather and there was this calming energy which filled the air at Ackerman Park. My goal was to run with my son for the first time and to finish the 5K without stopping my run. I felt that if Jack ran 4 marathons, I could run one 5K for him. I have to say it was probably the most fulfilling experience I've ever felt as a Glen Ellynite, as the community truly pulled together. Although I wanted to stop twice, I finished without stopping, as if Jack was pushing me on. A heartfelt "take care" from the Albrecht Family to the Marston Family, their friends & all of the Volunteers. God Bless you.
A Fathers touch, A Daddy's kiss,
A grieving Daughter, You're greatly missed.
An empty house, An empty chair,
A fathers love, No longer there.
A broken heart, Tear filled eye,
Another soul to fill the sky.
Many memories in my mind,
Some I laugh, Some I cry.
The times we shared, The laughs we had,
Things I miss when I think of you Dad.
Realizing that's all I have to hold on too,
Only memories, Of what once was you.
Missing your laugh, I will never again hear.
That is the reality that fills me with so much fear.
No more smile on your face,
No more warmth of your embrace.
The last hug, The last kiss,
The last "goodbye" leaves me with one last wish...
To have you Dad, here today,
Never to leave your Daughter this way.
A Father's touch, A Daddy's kiss,
A grieving Daughter, YOU'RE GREATLY MISSED!
Dear Sharon and Family,
I am so very, very sorry for your loss. Jack was like the kid brother that I never had---he and I became good friends as he brought CDP to us here in Idaho. The best we can do in this life is to leave the world a better place. There is no doubt Jack made this world a better place with his warmth, his smile and his genuine caring for people. My heart aches for all of you.

I was so saddened by this news. I will never forget Jack. He was always very helpful to me. My thoughts and prayers go to his family.
We are so saddened to learn of Jack Jr.'s death. Our hearts break for the pain of your loss. But remember in the words of Thomas Campbell, "To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die." For those who knew and loved him best, he will continue to live if we sing his song and share his memory with those around us.
I want the Marston and CDP families to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I always enjoyed Jack,Jr. visits to Atlanta. He always brought sunshine into our offices with his smile and energy. Jack was always willing to listen to our concerns and ready to make any adjustments necessary. He was always a team player and an easy person to work with. I will miss him.
Hearing the names Jack Sr and Jack Jr brought back so many good memories. If you'll remember - I was the first clerk you trained in implementing the Home Health program thru CDP. You and Jack Jr were so graciously kind and patient in teaching someone who knew absolutetly nothing about computers how to perform very detailed and difficult tasks.
Your smiles and kind personalities made it an easy and enjoyable experience.
It has been several years since I have seen you or Jack Jr - but when I heard of this tragic story - I was deeply saddened. I have kept in touch with Marvin in Frankfort and it was thru him that I learned of Jack's passing.
I know that God will give you the strength and grace that you need thru this difficult time - Please extend my condolences to Jack Jr's family. I know his wife and children must be devastated. I am praying that you and your entire family will feel God's loving arms around you and know that Jack Jr is at peace now.
May God be with you and your family.
Dearest Sharon -
I just heard via the grapevine of your loss. My heart goes out to you and your children. I know how special Jack was to you. Just remember, he is on the other side of that thin veil. The love that you two shared, will never break the bond between you. He will always be at your side. You and the kids will be in my prayers. May God wipe away your tears and wrap you in His loving arms.
Your old, old co-worker,
The staff of the Muhlenberg County Health Department would like to express its deepest sympathy to the Marston family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.
Jack was a great leader, an enthusiastic speaker and a wonderful teacher. He was professional in every way. He made you feel excited about any new idea he was promoting and he always had time to listen to your concerns. Whenever he would come into a room his smile would lighten up the whole room and seem to put everyone in it at ease. Jack Jr. will be greatly missed by anyone that had a chance to know him and we feel blessed to have had that chance.
I was so saddened to learn of the death of Jack Jr. He was such a wonderful person. He always had time to listen and work on the issues and concerns of the folks at the local level in the Public Health Departments. Jack Jr made everyone feel they were important to him and their voice was one he wanted to hear. I know he has a place of honor now and is speaking out for those he cares about, and if anyone will listen I bet they are hearing a story about his family, his favorite topic.
I'am so sorry for your loss. I'am
sure as I will you will always
remember his smile. May God Bless
and Comfort You.
Sharon and family,
May God watch over your family and console you during this time of sorrow. Too many years have passed, but my prayer go out to each of you. May you be conforted in knowing that the love of Christ is with you always.
Cindy (Hollems) VerHaar
Dear Marston Family,
Our heartfelt sympathy and prayers go out to each of you upon the loss of your Jack. I'm sorry we never had the privilege of meeting him, but our son Tom has spoken of him so often over the past years.I will continue to pray for you as you are the survivors and he is at peace. May you find light in each day and promise in knowing God is taking good care of Jack. I can't imagine having lost my dad when Iwas a kid, or losing my spouse much too soon. Burying one's child must be so hard. God bless.....
To Jack, Thank you for your friendship and support all of these years. I have wonderful memories of our experiences together to think about for the rest of my life. I will miss you. May God keep and bless you forever. I will end this note in the way that you ended many of our conversations over the years. "So long my friend".
I was so shocked to see Jack's face in the paper. I have such fond memmories of you and I working at O&M and the surprise party I attended for Jack's 30th. Always a smile on his face and a kind word. I can't begin to express my sorrow I have for you and your children.
My husband (Rick, you may remember him) will be 50 this Sept. We have two young daughters (9 & 5 ) and I worry constantly about our mortality.
I can't imagine what you're going through right now. I just want you to know that you are in my prayers.
Pat Cooke Jordan
One of the funniest memories I have of Mr. Marston is when he took Jenn, Allison, and myself to the Sox game. We had so much fun. On the way home we were listening to "Shake Ya Tail Feather" when Mr. Marston just started singing along and dancing (he knew all th words too). It was so funny to watch. Jenn, Allison, and I just looked at each other and didn't know what to say. I will always remember Mr. Marston and keep him and his family in my prayers.
Our deepest sympathy to you all. It was such a shock to lose Jack. He will be sorely missed by all. Please let us help in any way we can.
Bob and Margaret
Sharon, Jen, Jack, Michael and Matthew,
We were so deeply saddened to learn of Jack's passing. Each of you are in our thoughts and prayers. Jack was such a great influence on so many Glen Ellyn children and taught them more than just the sport. God bless you and comfort you.
Eric, Robin, Chris and Riley Lundquist

I was devastated to hear of Jack passing. My heart goes out to the entire Marston Family especially Jack's Wife, Children, his Folks and Steve & Kelly. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
It is obvious that many people were blessed by having known Jack and for having him in their lives. Like the rest of the Marston Family Jack was an awesome individual.
To the Marston Family:
We are Centre friends of Jack. We had the pleasure of seeing him at Keeneland in the fall. He was there entertaining a group for business but made the time to meet up and say Hello. We hoped he could stay for some Homecoming festivities but he had a purpose in getting back. He wanted to see his daughter for her homecoming. He proudly filled us in with some information about his children and seemed the very happy family man.
We extend our deepest sympathy to Sharon, the children, and all of Jack's family and are thinking of you.
To The Marston family:
It was with the deepest sorrow that the Yarotsky family learned of Jack's death last night! I (Tom) have always, and will always, consider Jack my dearest friend from our Chicago Heights days. Although we have not spoken in years you all are often talked about fondly at Yarotsky family gatherings.
The thoughts and prayers of the Yarotsky family are with you!
From the Yarotsky family (Tom)
Sharon and family,
May God find a way to bring Peace to your life during this tragic time. All our love and prayers in the days ahead.
Chris, Debbie, Morgan, Conner, Brooke, and Cole
Jack and Anita: It was with a sad heart that we read of your son's death. You have our deepest sympathy. Just over a year ago we lost our youngest daughter, Karol at age 43, to a brain tumor, so we know what you are going through. May God be with you and give you strength.
The first time we met Jack was when visiting the same classroom both of our daughters were entering in first grade. Jack's being there and pushing a double stroller filled with beautiful twin boys along with two other precious children left an impression that was everlasting...a very proud father who at a young age knew what was most important in life. Anyone who has had the pleasure of knowing Jack knows that he was completely devoted to his family and spent as much time with them as well as their friends as any person could.
Jack also made more than one personal visit to our home to give a game ball or words of praise for a job well done. Jack always was available to help with car pooling and even give a lost "soccer mom" continuous directions, by cell phone, to ensure we all arrived safely to the field. Others have similar memories because anyone who knew Jack has experienced his warm, genuine, unconditional willingness to help in any way.
While we mourn his passing, more significantly, we celebrate how he cherished life and his family while touching so many others along the way.
All our love and prayers,
Karen, Mallory, Chris and Rachel Simmons
My sincere condolences to the
With deepest sympathy to Jack's family and co-workers. I didn't know him very well but everytime he came to visit our office he brought along his sense of humor and good spirit.
My love and condolences to the Marston family & all at CDP. Jack Jr. was like a son to me. I appreciated him & all he taught me about the computer system at Knox County Home Health in Barbourville. I also appreciated him for taking the time out of his busy schedule to help me celebrate my retirement in Feb., 2002. May God truly bless & keep you all.
I was deeply saddened to hear of Jack Jr.'s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with the Marston family. Jack Jr was one of the nicest people I have ever met, and he will be sorely missed. I didn't get to see him very often but he always remembered me and greeted me with a smile.
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, i do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at the grave and cry
I am not there
I did not die.
I first met Jack II back in 1983 when the computers were installed in Green River Home Health. I would like to express my sympathy to the entire family of Jack II and also the CDP family that worked with him every day. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time of loss.
Please know that the staff of the Knox County Health Department will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers. Jack Jr. was one of the Lord's true shining stars. He will be missed by all.
I only met Jack a few times but thought he was a fine and outstanding person. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the entire family as well as Custom Data employees. Jack always had a desire to provide the highest level of support and service to his clients. That is well known and he and his family has a company that each person can be very proud of.
Jack touched the lives of many in a positive way, and he will be fondly remembered. As a person, as a businessman, and as a friend - he excelled. My deepest condolences to the family.
My longtime friend, teacher, advisor and mentor; it’s hard to imagine not seeing his friendly smile. He will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to Sharon and the kids, Sr, Steve, Kelly and the staff of CDP.
Jack's laughter and smile lit up our world. Words cannot express how much he will be missed.
This is a great loss for everyone. I wish some of Jr.'s infamous strength for his family during this time.
I send my sincere condolence to Jack's family. I pray for God to grant you strength, comfort and assurance.
Sharon, prayers and sympathy to you and your family at this difficult time. While I am sorry to say I barely knew Jack, I do remember the smiles he brought to you. May these smiles and memories bring encouragement to you and may the wonderful memories sustain you through the days ahead.
(You knew me as Cindy Parks when we worked together at Borg Warner - I sat right next to you)
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Marston family. It was an honor to work with Jack Jr. God Bless

Sharon and Family,
Our hearts ache from your loss. Jack touched all of our lives during the all too short time that we knew him. He brought out the best in the children of Glen Ellyn; and in most of the parents as well! He brought us all to a higher level and we are blessed to have shared some time with him. God Bless you all.
I am very saddened by the news of Jack Jr.'s passing. I feel blessed by knowing him. He touched many lives and will be fondly remembered. My thoughts and prayers are with the Marston family.
Jack will forever be a part of CDP and our agency. My friendly chats about Chicago (my home) during meetings will be missed!
To Jack's Family:
While you have lost a dear person and a fine man, you will always treasure in your heart the memories of a wonderful husband and father. No one can ever take that from you.
Jack and I became friends our freshman year of college and never lost touch. We continued to see each other over the years and I always cherished his company. He was a fine man and, like you, I will miss him greatly.
A finer man was never made, and now we can revel in the fact that he is at peace with the Lord.

Dear Sharon, Jennifer, Jack, Matthew and Michael,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We remember Jack's passion for sports and his constant presence, support and encouragement at baseball and basketball games. He always had a kind word for the kids when they played, and he helped Sean get over his nervousness this summer when he first began to umpire baseball games. When little Jack hit his over-the-fence home run during the Glen Ellyn Travel Tournament recently, we all clapped and cheered and knew that somewhere, big Jack was clapping, grinning and cheering with us.

My memories of Jack a great smile always
It's hard not to think of Jack's contribution to children's sports. He will always exemplify enthusiasm, competition and fun to me. To "miss him" would be an understatement.
Jack was a good friend, innovator and great golfer who will be sorely missed. He played a large role in bringing Public Health data keeping in Kentucky out of the dark ages to the bright lights of being a national leader.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Our condolences are with the entire CDP family. Jack II, hit the ball long and straight up there.
Jack was a good friend and all those that knew him and loved him will miss him terribly. May God grant peace and comfort to the family during this time of sorrow. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
You will be sorely missed by all.
Our hearts are hurting for the entire Marston family. Jack was everywhere! Not only was he busy being a father, coach & mentor for his own children, but for all the children of Glen Ellyn. Our family is blessed to have witnessed his smile, his wit and honored to have shared a seat on the sidelines with Jack & his wonderful family both as a coach and a spectator. We are especially grateful for his steadfast support and encouragement of Myles. We will forever remember the personal phone call he made this year to tell Myles they had drafted him on the Mets. We had to “pull” Myles off the ceiling he was so excited! Even though we envisioned sitting beside Jack at games all the way through high school, his presence will be with us and we will find comfort in knowing that his “Game Day Vehicle” will be watching over all of us from a different seat.
The staff and administration of the Christian County Health Department wishes to extend our sympathies to the Marston family and Central Data Processing.
