Born in Corpus Christi on February 12, 1957, to Paul and Mozelle Crews, Jack lived a life full of faith and service to his family and community. He grew up in Houston where he met the love of his life, Diane, when he was 17 years old. They married on September 1, 1979, and went on to have five children: Andrew, Courtney, Amanda, Rebecca, and Clay. While beginning his career as an attorney, Jack coached his children in tee-ball, soccer, and basketball. He never missed a game, recital, or presentation. He was always there, a steady and reliable presence, through it all. He was a wonderful father and will be remembered for his generosity, compassion, and wise counsel.
Jack studied law at Baylor University, and joined the firm Baird, Crews, Schiller & Whitaker, P.C. more than 35 years ago. During that time, he served his church and community in many capacities. More than anything, Jack was a man of faith who entrusted his life, family, and career to the God he served so devotedly. In 2017, he traveled to Uganda to share his legal expertise and Christian faith with young law students and attorneys who were striving to create a more just and honest society. However, he loved nothing more than to spend time with his family, especially his wife, children, and grandchildren. Jack is survived by his mother, Mozelle; his brother, Paul; his wife, Diane; his children, Andrew, Courtney, Amanda (and Brett, his son-in-law), Rebecca, and Clay; and his grandchildren, Madden and Miles.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations are made in memory of Jack to any of the following organizations: buildOn, Hope Pregnancy Center, National Immigrant Justice Center, Ralph Wilson Youth Club.
