Jack Cook Memorial Fund
by posted 07/10/2014
 
Dear All Current and Past Blue Lion Players and Families,
As all of you are aware we tragically lost a member of our KC Blue Lion Family this week, Jack David Cook, 12yr old defenseman on our top U-13 select team. Young Jack discovered his passion for the game of lacrosse last year and it is our organizational hope that in honor of Jack we will able to assist his family with our continued support both personally and financially. KC Blue Lion Lacrosse was founded 6 years ago when Dan Bolen, president/owner of Bank of Praire Village reached out to Coach Coleman to ask if his high school age son could be exposed to a higher level of lacrosse by creating a team of the strongest KC area HS players and travel to competitive venues to expose his son and all other team mates better lacrosse than found in the Kansas City area. The Cook family 6 years later found our organization for Jack to accomplish this same objective.
 
The Jack Cook Memorial Fund has been set up at the Bank of Prairie Village in honor and support of our young defense man who is now watching over all of us in heaven. We are asking any one who feels they are in a position to help
 ​-​
 to contribute to this fund which will be used by the family to assist in what ever area they need as they
​ begin to​
 work through their grief 
​from ​
this 
​sudden and ​
tragic loss. Cont
​ri​
butions can be sent to:
 
The Jack Cook Memorial Fund
C/O The Bank of Prairie Village
3515 West 75th
Prairie Village, Kansas 66208 
In addition to 
​establishing this​
 fund we will be giving all our 2014 players helmet stickers with his initials "JC" to wear in Jack's honor. We have the final summer tournament this weekend - The Pipe City Festival in Chicago- All 8 teams will 
​wear these stickers and​
compete with "JC" on the helmets or sticks( for our Girls Teams) in honor of their fellow team mate #5 Jack Cook. We ask all players who are available to attend Jack's memorial services
​,to wear their KC Blue Lions​
  uniform'
​s​

 on both Sunday and Monday- Our Pipe City coaches and players are encouraged to attend on Monday if they are back from Chicago.

Visitation

Sunday, the thirteenth of July 4:00 to 6:00 pm

Memorial Service

Monday, the fourteenth of July 10:00 am

Both services to be held at Porter Funeral Home 8535 Monrovia, Lenexa, Kansas

Since expressing their feelings can help provide closure for kids, 5 to 10 minutes of Monday's service will be set aside for children to share a special memory, reading or poem. Please let Robin know if your child or group of children would like to speak at .
Have them write down what they'd like to say just in case their reading needs to be finished up by someone else.

Additionally, the family requests that you bring photos, written passages or poems and/or momentos that you'd like to share. At both services, there will be a large bulletin board available on which to pin things and a basket and table to hold items that can't be pinned. 

 
Thank you for being a KC Blue Lion and joining us to support 
 ​one​
 of 
​​
our own!
​ ​
 We love you Jack- the newest defensive angel in heaven.
 ​
 
Best to All,​

Jack Cook
by posted 07/09/2014
 
    Since 2008 Blue Lion lacrosse has been blessed with amazing players and families and has grown to be a supportive great extended family. Our Blue Lion family has experienced the sudden and tragic loss of one of our own young players, U 13 select team defensive player, Jack Cook. Jack,12 yrs old, joined Blue Lions this summer after several seasons with the BV Spartans. He played amazing well in both the Denver and St. Louis tournaments. Jack passed away in his sleep Monday morning.
 
Jack's Spartan and KC Blue Lion coach, Ken Peterson sent us word of the loss and reflections of his lacrosse passion which we are forwarding for all our players and parents to read​-see below. Once funeral arrangements are known we will forward this information as well- In memory and tribute to Jack we will be asking all our players to where helmet sticker in his honor-
 
Thank you Jack for sharing your lacrosse talents with the KC Blue Lions- we will miss you!
 
Your Blue Lion Family
 
I am very sad to send you this email with regards to one of our Blue Lion Lacrosse players.  Jack Cook, one of your U 13 players, passed away in his sleep early 
m
onday morning.  This was and is devastating news to us all, especially to those that knew him well.  There are no words to describe the magnitude of such a loss, both on and off the field.   Jack loved to play lacrosse, and excelled as a defense-man.  He was always very kind and encouraging, and a friend to everyone.
 
He played for our team during the kcyll season, and was an absolute joy to have him as part of our BV Spartan lacrosse family.  This year he joined Blue Lions and gained another lacrosse family, as he continued to give it his all while playing for Blue l\Lions. I believe in the world of lacrosse there is a special place for those that play the sport.  They are a great group of boys/girls who have a special talent and heart for this great team sport!  We do not know when the funeral will be but will keep you informed. 
 
Please pass this along to the extended Blue Lions family. Our hearts are saddened with such a tragic loss, and hope everyone takes time to realize how great your children are, and how important family is.  Lacrosse provided Jack an extended family and I know he was proud to be a part of this great sport as it provided strength and friendship.  Please keep his family in your prayers!
