About Jack

Jack Jonah was a young man whose life was full of promise.

He died of an accidental opioid overdose at aged 19.  Jack had many interests and talents which gave his life depth and fulfillment. He was a gifted artist and play writer. Jack co-directed and wrote the play “LABELS” which received high acclaim from local writers.

Jack Jonah was a young man whose life was full of promise.

Jack loved playing the guitar and piano. He enjoyed cooking for his family and hiking with his sister Karlye and brother Dan.  Jack deeply loved animals and volunteered at the Dakin Humane Society and worked as a Medical Technician at Boston Road Animal Hospital.

When he left us, Jack was studying biology and art at Holyoke Community College.

Jack's life, though unbearably short, continues to be an inspiration to all who knew him.  The Jack Jonah Foundation seeks to use Jack's life and indomitable spirit to educate youth and parents alike about the dangers of drugs and substance abuse.  If we can save even one life in our efforts, then Jack's memory will live forever.  We hope you will join us in our mission and spread the word about our foundation so that we may continue in our efforts.
