Jack's Story


Dear Operation North Pole

Last year we were fortunate to be on the receiving end of ONP's generosity and we are extremely thankful for everything the organization did for our family when our son Jack was ill with a brain tumor.  We didn't know how much fun he would have until we realized our family was the last to leave the party!  It was truly a memorable experience, and as a result we will always try and help others in need.

It's unfortunate that our son Jack lost his battle on August 22, 2015 after 13 months of fighting. Jack taught us many things in just 3 short years.  He taught us to live, laugh, love and be thankful for everything that we have because it can be gone tomorrow.

We have included 2 Costco gift cards to help this year in honor of Jack.  One of the cards is from my family and the other is from Jack's grandfather.  Please use them as needed and, although we can't volunteer this year to help, we would love to help out in years to come.

Thanks again for making our Christmas 2014 brighter.  Jack always had a smile on his face when he was driving his tractor that Santa brought him, and those memories are priceless!
