to an eternal life with Him, Tuesday, September 15, 2015.
sister Ella to complete this wonderful family. Jack and Ella enjoyed
playing games and activities for hours on end, yet had quality time to
“bother” each other. He loved to cuddle with Mom, and checked in on her
most nights. He spent hours watching and playing sports with his Dad.
Singing songs and learning about Jesus was enjoyable to Jack at Our Saviour
Lutheran Sunday School, VBS, 3K and 4K Pre-School, and in his brief days at
Trinity Lutheran Kindergarten. He will be missed by his classmates,
teachers, and school community.
Jack filled our hearts with love during his brief time on earth leaving
lasting memories for all of us who knew and cherished him. His smile and
his enthusiasm for life were contagious. Countless hours spent with Grandma
Roxanne and all the daycare children included learning, plenty of
activities, and most importantly, lap time. Jack loved farming with Grandpa
Dan and learned so much about cows, crops, and farm machinery.
Jack is survived by his parents, Renee and Jason Natzke; his big sister,
Ella; his grandparents, Dan and Barb Natzke, Stephen and Roxanne Siekmann;
great-grandparents, Gene and Doris Plate, Vernon and Joyce Siekmann, Roger
and Merlette Dottei; aunts and uncles, Jeremy (Godfather) and Heather
Natzke, Jenna and Jacob Nonemacher, Christopher and Carly Siekmann; cousins,
Cora, Caitlin, Caylee, Allie, Temperance, and Clay; his Godparents, Aaron
Siekmann and Christa Sink; other relatives and many friends.
He was preceded in death by great-grandparents, Amos and Loraine Natzke,

The Natzke family expresses their gratitude to the loving, caring quality
staff at Aurora Baycare ER and St. Vincent Hospital Pediatric ICU. They put
their knowledge, heart, and soul into their care for Jack. The impact that
Jack had in his final days, especially through all the posting on
“JackStrong” will be treasured by not only the family, but by so many that
Jack touched, even though they never met him. Thanks to all that posted,
but more for the thousands across the world that were praying for Jack and
the rest of us! May we use the events of the past week to draw us closer to
Jesus, our families, and the community of believers. Our loss is heaven’s
gain. Our Jack is now an angel. o
