The Jack W. Crum Memorial Foundation was established to help advance the sport of Baton Twirling.  The fund helps athletes meet travel expenses, provides scholarships for college, provides financial support to groups and organizations to help fund baton twirling programs.  The fund will also provide financial support for other worthy baton twirling programs.


"The greatest advocate of all baton twirling athletes, EVER! You were and will always be a true ICON in this sport. We salute you!"

"He put 100% into what he did and he truly was the biggest advocate for our sport...Heaven called a great one home...He will be sorely missed and definitely NEVER forgotten."

" How blessed we were to have you in our lives. Your love, generosity, sense of humor, and kindness will be difficult to replicate. God bless you"

"Jack took me under his wing when I was 9. Many very happy and warm memories. As a former member of the Marion Highsteppers, I would like to thank you all for sharing such a special man with hundreds? of young souls. Jack taught us teamwork, perseverance, organization, and discipline. Loved and deeply missed."

"I am a better person for having known Jack Crum. I am forever grateful for having known him and for the uncountable ways he and Marge positively affected mine and my family’s journey in the wild and crazy world that is baton twirling. When I remember Jack I’ll remember him sitting in the stands, wearing those American flag shorts, and cheering on every twirler who takes the floor. So this is for Jack Crum, one of the greatest champions the sport of baton twirling and its athletes will ever know. We love you, we miss you, and we remember you. Thanks, Jack."

"You were a leader, a promoter and a fierce defender of all things twirling. But most of all you were a kind and generous giver - and a true friend. We will miss you."
