On December 19, 2015, Captain Jack Rose succumbed to his injuries in the line of duty.  Jack was nineteen years old and a member of the Mount Marion  Fire Department in Ulster County, NY.   Proceeds from this official family site will benefit the Rose Family.  Jack will forever be a role model to young firefighters. Jack loved what he did. Not one minute went by that he didn't. He was a strong young man. 7742485_1450634674.0413_funddescription.

Thank you
 
So many have been touched by the loss of our beloved son, brother, and uncle.  
 
We are humbled by the outpouring of love and support from those near and far: Family, friends, neighbors, and the Brotherhood of Fire Fighters, Police and EMS.
 
We cherish each and every gesture; every tribute made in Jack's honor.
  
Our hearts are overwhelmed! We know it’s just not possible to thank every single person that honored Jack in one way or another, but we hope this letter lets each and every one of you know that we have felt and cherish your love and support.
 
Jack’s memory, and your love, uplifts us and gives us the courage to smile and slowly put one foot in front of the other.

You have given us strength.

You have become part of the light that guides us.

Thank you.

With love and honor,

Gary, Linda, Matt, Marley, and Jess Rose.

In the spirit of Christmas, the Rose Family would like to thank you for your generous contribution for fallen Firefighter Captain Jack Rose. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with joy and peace.

"We have been overwhelmed by the personal stories from individuals in our community about how Jack has touched their lives in one way or another.
Jack Rose was a heroic and kind person who cared for the people he loved and for his community.
I'm happy to have been Jack Rose's mother for the short time that I had him. I am proud to call him my son. He was a gift.
But I really do feel that the extraordinary response to Jack's passing is because Jack symbolizes exactly what Christmas is all about: selflessness, loyalty and sacrifice. We need more Jack Rose's in the world."
--Linda Rose, Mother Captain Jack Rose

Jack Rose was a born caregiver, and offered tremendous support to his loved ones. His devotion to his parents and commitment to their well-being are irreplaceable, but your donations will make a difference as they adjust to life without Jack. In the few days since Jack has left us, his family is so very grateful for and comforted by the outpouring of support.

Captain Jack Rose died tragically Saturday night, December 19, 2015 fighting a house fire. He was just nineteen years old. His loving family is broken hearted and his community of friends and Firefighters is devastated by this loss.

Brave and generous with a mischievous sense of humor Jack was a bright light in the world. He graduated from John A. Coleman Catholic High School in Kingston, NY where he was an honor student and earned varsity letters in both tennis and golf. But Jack’s passion as soon as he could walk and talk was for firefighting; it was his lifelong dream. He was proud to be a member of the Mt. Marion Fire Co. as an EMT, Mobile Life Support Services and Firefighter.
