Our Jack Is Free

Where you go, I will go…

And where you stay,

I will stay.

Ruth 1:16

Our precious, handsome, courageous boy Jack Teagan Fowler, took his last breath on Earth yesterday morning and passed peacefully in his sleep.

We always knew time with Jack would be limited, however his passing was a surprise. Jack was making improvements, enjoying school and laughing at his movies. The past couple of weeks were filled with incredible memories. In our hearts we believe Jack was ready, he decided to leave on his terms and gave us (Jamie, Jason & Juliet) the opportunity to hold him, love him and say goodbye to him.

While we are devastated there is some relief that he no longer suffers, feels pain or is bound by Hunter Syndrome. Now we take on the suffering and pain of navigating life without him here, at least physically.

In the past 24 hours we have all experienced Jack’s presence. He has reminded us, in sometimes not so subtle ways, that he surrounds us and he is free.

When we are ready, we will be hosting celebrations in both Colorado and Illinois to honor Jack and the positive impact he has made on countless lives during his short but powerful 14 1/2 years.

Right now we ask for your patience, privacy and respect as we navigate this incredibly difficult time. We’ll share more information in the coming days.

What you can do today, tomorrow and the days to come is honor Jack by saying his name Jack Teagan Fowler out loud. Let him know you love him and share the impact has had on you.

He will be our guide into this new chapter.

Jack Teagan…our boy and brother we love you, we miss you, you will always be in our hearts and on our minds.

With love always,

Jamie, Jason & Juliet

  1. There are no words to ease the pain. Comfort is nowhere to be found. Know you are not alone, even as far away as little Ireland Mr Jack was known and loved. We will forever miss reading his stories and seeing what he is up to. I believe with all my heart our boys are all together watching over us.
    May you all find the strength within to live your lives in honour of beautiful Mr Jack.
    I hope, somewhere over that rainbow he is with my Ethan and all the other boys who have gone before.
    Sending you all blove, always

  2. I am so incredibly sorry to hear this. Jack was a courageous young man and I followed this story from a distance. Know that your story and your courage is an inspiration for others. I wish you and your family the absolute best during this difficult time. As a parent of two I cannot imagine the sadness. I hope you can find strength in knowing others are caring from a distance.

  4. Hello Jason, Jamie and Juliet,
    My thoughts and prayers go out to your family at this time. I fondly remember Jack and his smile when he attended our preschool. His presence lit up the room, especially when he was pretending to put out fires with his pretend fire hose. We never know how impactful our children have on our lives. We have continued to think about Jack even after he left the preschool. Hugs and kisses headed your way,

    -Cindy Frech (School Social Worker, Prairie Children Preschool)

  5. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you, Jason, and Juliet. I always smile when I think of Jack and his larger than life personality. I am blessed to have had the chance to get to work with Jack during his time at Prairie Children Preschool. I am forever changed from having known Jack and he will always be imprinted on my heart.

  6. Jason, Jamie and Juliet, It is with a heavy heart I send my thoughts and prayers for you all. May your memories strengthen you during this difficult time. I was blessed to have Jack in the Duck classroom (10 short years ago!) and will forever remember him calling out Rice when I would see him in the hallway each morning with a HUGE smile on his face…and that laugh, beautiful….Your strength through this journey has been inspirational. I wish you all peace…Sincerely, Cyndi Rice, Duck Classroom Teacher Prairie Children Preschool
