Jack Thomas Sarver died on May 25, 2020 at the age of 15. He was a native of Lafayette, La., born on Feb. 1, 2005.
He and his family moved to Durant in July 2015. He was an avid LSU and New Orleans Saints fan and carried an Alvin Kamara book bag.
His quick sarcastic wit kept his family and friends always on their toes. If Jack knew he was right, he fiercely defended his belief.
Jack had many goals, such as he wanted to be taller than Jordan Gregory. He was determined to go to Harvard to become an orthopedic doctor in the field of sports medicine. In his spare time, Jack enjoyed gaming and playing sports with his friends. He loved fishing, camping, and riding jet skis and hanging out in the pool at home with his friends.
Jack was an active member of Fusion Bible Church Durant’s Youth Program. He was looking forward to his sophomore year at Durant High School where he was a dedicated student and athlete. Jack excelled in his education and achieved a position in the Top 10 percent of students in the state of Oklahoma.
