Jack Chapman Esposito, 12, of Lincroft, earned his Angel wings on Tuesday, August 2, in the arms of his parents after complications from a bone marrow transplant following relapsed Leukemia. Jack fought Leukemia twice and always with a brave determination and optimism that awed everyone around him.
Jack loved sports and played golf, baseball, basketball, tennis and was a swimmer with the Red Bank YMCA Aquarockets. He played piano, was an avid Star Wars, Jaws and Indiana Jones fan. He especially loved trains, weather, sharks and a good story and a good laugh. He had an amazing smile and charmed all he met with his generous spirit. His happy place will always be on LBI fishing or watching the sunrise with his “sunrise club.” He also loved visiting Cape Cod to golf with his buddy.
He is survived by his beloved parents, Keith and Colleen (nee Brill); his loving sisters, Kathleen and Caroline; and his dear grandmothers, Frances Meehan Brill and Carol Ann Esposito.
Memorial donations may be made to the St. Leo the Great School Endowment Fund in Jack’s name. We remind others that his life is one to be celebrated. He had a very happy and adventure filled life. Although we will miss him every day, he will forever remain in our hearts. Please visit Jack’s memorial website at www.johnedayfuneralhome.com.
