In Memory

Michael Jacek

It's with heartfelt sadness that I forward this note that I received today from Donna Janes Shaw:

I am heartbroken to relay this message. On December 21, Mike Jacek died at Beaumont Hospital after a month long battle with Covid. Vicki and his daughters and grandchildren are devastated. Mike loved his Lowrey days and loved working on the reunions. He was a very dear friend who will be missed forever.  Donna

Mike was married to Vicki Van Assche from our class.  They have 3 married daughters and 8 grandchildren. He was a proud Dad and Grandpa.  Went to all the kids', baseball, basketball, cheerleading, even travelling out of state.

He and Vicki and the Shaw's were very close.  Mike was Godfather to their daughter.

As Donna mentioned in her note, Mike loved working on our reunions.  For many years the Shaws and the Jaceks coordinated our class reunions .  For our 50th, Mike arranged for the Teen Angels to perform oldies but goodies.

My family lived just a couple of blocks from Mike, growing up.  I'd only seen him at reunions, but he always had a smile on his face and a good word to say.. May his family find healing and comfort during this difficult time.

I just found out about Mike's passing. I would like to extend my sympathies to Vickie and to all of Mike's family. I was always glad to consider Mike a good friend and we were both G.M. Retirees. I was rather stunned to read this news as when I think of Mike, I can just picture him with a smile on his face and always seeming to be in a jovial mood! Rest In Peace Mike.😢

Mike was truly one of the nicest young men I have ever met. He lived down the street from Bob and I,so I was fortunate to see him often. I spoke to Mick Malyszek the last couple of days and it was obvious he was shaken by the news as I was. There will always be a special place in my memories for such a wonderful man.God bless you and your family Mike.

Billie found this great picture of her and Mike taken at graduation in June of 1967.  (Steve Gnewkowski and Frank Queen are in the background.)   Lots of good memories of Mike.

Thank you Billie for sending the great picture of you and Mike.

Although I graduated with Mike, I did not meet him until 3 years after


Thank you all for your love, support, kind words, and prayers

during this  diffiult time; as Mike's death was totally unexpected.

He was a wonderful, caring, and loving husband, father, and

Dziadzi to our grandkids.  We all miss him so much.

Vicki and family.
