Got the sad news yesterday. Sister Deb Bleich and I were just talking about our dear Uncle Jack on the 3rd of May. I hadn't heard much from him over the internet during the past year and was a bit worried. I have many good memories of Uncle Jack. He was my Godfather and in many ways my mentor. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to Babs, Craig, Dave, and theirs.
Dear Jelinek Family,
I'm very sorry for your loss. I just very recently learned of Uncle Jack's passing. He never seemed to age so it was a shock. I wish I would've known about his passing sooner so I could have been there to mourn with you and to celebrate his life.
Dear Jelinek Clan: My deepest sympathy, dearest memories, and prayers avail to my entire Minnesota family. We Anderson kids greatly loved and admired Uncle Jack. About July 1966 Charlene, Bobby, and I ran a muck daily, in front of Uncle Don's cabin. At age 13 I (Cheryl) was able to stay at both Aunt Darlene's and Uncle Jack's home. Ate my first mayonnaise & peanut butter sandwich. Uncle Jack said its even better with salami added! He took me on my first jet ski ride. As we went over thin ice... He saved us both and the jet ski! I also got to spend a little time with Bab's over that New Year holiday. She and John took me out for pizza. All of you Jelinek's are a rare and lovely breed. Uncle Jack led the family with his "Ever Glowing" Olympian Torch. He was never a dull-moment! I am sure heaven is a much livelier resting place since he arrived...
Much Love, Cheryl Fasano (niece)
Rest in Peace, Uncle Jack!
My heartfelt condolences to you Barb and to the whole family during this difficult time. My prayers are with you all.
We are so sorry for your loss but please take comfort in the many wonderful memories you have of your Dad.
You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
Terri and George Rea
We fished and hunted and played golf for many years together. Jack was a great companion and a great guy.
Uncle Jack - You will be missed. Say Hi to Aunt Barbara for me!
Uncle Jack - save me a seat at the heavenly cribbage game
So sorry for your loss. I knew Jack for over 32years working in pharmacy. Very Nice man; always professional . Never seemed in a bad mood and enjoyed his job.
Thanks for being my mentor and directing me toward being a Pharmaceutical Sales Rep. Your advice made a huge difference in my life — my life is better for having known you.
A very long-time family friend. One of the Four-J's deer hunting camp/shack north of Grand Rapids. A world-class tree climber, an enthusiastic card player, a great deer hunter, a strong skier, a diligent golfer, an avid conversationalist, and a lover of life with a terrific laugh. Jack will be sorely missed by everyone who ever met him.
Dear Family: We are so sorry for your great loss. We loved Uncle Jack very much. Growing up in CA I didn't get the chance to really enjoy his company. But the few times I did were memorable. I think he was fantastic and a real stand up guy. I loved how well he took care of himself and his family. He was so cute and funny and proud of his kids and grandchildren. He will be missed! Love, Charlene (niece) and Marylou (sister)
