 Be Like Jack  

On February 10, 2018, OJR teachers Doug and Jennifer Rowley (formerly Hasselhan), lost the eldest of their two children, Jack Rowley. At age 5, Jack passed away in his sleep due to complications from Epilepsy. 

Doug has been a committed physical education teacher at East Vincent Elementary (formerly Vincent) for over 20 years. Jen has taught music education at French Creek Elementary for 12 years. Both have made a positive difference in the lives of thousands of OJR students and families. 

With Doug and Jen's involvement, the East Vincent Elementary PTA and Faculty are building a Playground Pavilion dedicated to Jack. This Playground Pavilion will be used by all students at East Vincent, as well as clubs, girl and boy scout troops, and teachers utilizing the outdoor space. 

The cost to build the structure in 2020 will be $62,000. Our goal is to raise the funds by December 2019.  We need YOU to partner with us in creating this special memorial in Jack’s name, as he loved being outside having FUN! Doug, Jen, and little brother Drew, as well as the East Vincent Elementary Community, appreciate your donation to this cause. 

Warmest Regards - East Vincent Elementary Faculty, Staff & EV PTA
