Jack Minette Obituary – Death (Macon, GA): 17 years old senior student of Stratford Academy, Jack Minette has passed away. Jack died on Monday, November 8, 2021. However, his cause of death is still Unknown.
“For a guy like me who is never speechless, I don’t know what to say. For me, losing two of my seniors in the last 4 months seems…impossible. I get very close to my students, and as a result, these hits cut me very deeply. When my phone exploded this morning about Jack’s death, I was at a total, complete loss of words.” Logan Bowlds, Head of School at Stratford Academy wrote.
Jack was a senior at Stratford Academy where he played lacrosse, served on student government, and was a leading member of the Design Team. As a member of Christ Church, he was an acolyte, a thurifer, and an active member of the youth group.
“Jack was a kind, compassionate, funny, and bright young man. For those who follow me on social media, you’ve likely seen that one of my most recent posts on Facebook featured him. He had been SO proud to show me his experiment in his AP chem class.” He Continued.
“While we may never know the “what happened” behind this, I know this: parents, love your babies whether they are 4, 14, or 41. Squeeze and love them. As if we needed another reminder of how precious life is, here it is.
As you say your prayers tonight, please pray for the Minette family, Jack’s soul, his girlfriend, and his friends in this senior class who will continue to struggle with this for months to come. This class has had to do a LOT of growing up in the last few months, and I pray that God continues to guide me in leading them through this new tragedy.
Lord, hear our prayers tonight. Guide Jack’s soul to his final resting place and continue to provide peace and comfort that only You can.” Logan Bowlds Wrote.
Jack is survived by his parents, Dr. Chris and Laurie Minette of Macon; sister, Ellie Minette of Macon; paternal grandparents, Dr. Lawrence and Iris Minette of Greenville, South Carolina; maternal grandparents, Tom and Ann Fuller of Greenville; aunts and uncles, Dr. Cherie Minette, Robin and Andy Ballentine, and Chad and Jamie Fuller, all of Greenville; great aunt, Sue Keith of Greenville; and cousins: Jude, Tyler, Will, Abby, Emily, Jake, and Grant.
