Forever in our Hearts
The American Fallen Warrior Memorial Foundation is sad to announce the unexpected passing of Jack Rush, our CEO and Executive Director. Jack was passionate about our mission to honor those who gave their life in the service of this country. He worked tirelessly to support the families of our fallen warriors and help recruit the next generation of US Navy leaders.
Jack’s obituary could not cover the extent of his enormous contributions to veterans, the American Fallen Warrior Memorial Foundation, the USNA Alumni Association Chapter, and the Navy League Council in Kansas City.
Jack was presented the Department of the Navy’s Meritorious Civilian Service Award, one of the highest non-military awards, signed by the acting Secretary of the Navy, for his work spanning three decades, with the Naval Academy’s Blue and Gold program, assisting local candidates applying to the Naval Academy, in Kansas City.
We will “Never Forget” Jack and the contributions he made to honor the lives of all the men and women who served and made the world a safer place.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to American Fallen Warrior Memorial Foundation.
The American Fallen Warrior Memorial Foundation remains steadfast in our commitment to our vision to honoring those service members who gave their life for our country. The first phase of this commitment is underway in building a Virtual Memorial. If you have any questions emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please keep Jack’s family in your thoughts and prayers. America has lost another great warrior.
With a heavy heart,
Chairman, AFWMF Board of Directors
