We are deeply saddened to announce the passing last Tuesday night of our beloved
Maestro Jack Mercer. Band members are heartbroken in having lost the father of the Show Band and
also a great friend. Without question, Jack was one of a kind and will be missed by all who had
the good fortune to know him.
The celebration of life/memorial service for Jack Mercer will be held on Saturday, September 13th, 2014
at 10:30am at The First United Methodist Church of Ontario located at 918 N. Euclid Avenue, Ontario CA 91762.
Please, no flowers. The family would like to honor Jack by having donations made in lieu of flowers
to the scholarship that is in Jack's name that the Chaffey High School Music Department gives to a deserving
music student each year. This college scholarship is for a student that is handpicked by the band director
as the most promising student that is planning to go to college to further his or her music education.
Donations for this scholarship fund can be sent to:
Friends of the OCCSB * P.O. Box 1512 * Ontario, CA 91762
