Jack Lorentzen Obituary, Death – Jack Lorentzen, 30, who brought joy to everyone he met, died on Christmas Eve morning in St. Louis, Missouri, at the house of his fiancée’s parents. Jack was born exactly 6 minutes before his twin sister Charlotte on October 26, 1992, at Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ. He grew up to be a very happy youngster with many friends, and he and Charlotte had many. As a child, Jack was a long-stick defender for the Tri-State League. Jack afterwards had a good swimming career. He was a member of the Fanwood and Scotch Plains YMCA (FSPY) and Westfield YMCA swim teams, where he achieved a number of records. The swim team won multiple state titles and state final meets throughout high school, and Jack was voted co-captain his senior year.
His family and he were active members of the Westfield Presbyterian Church, where they went every Sunday and where Jack and his siblings volunteered at the Agape Soup Kitchen in Elizabeth, as well as frequent mission trips to Iowa and Guatemala, where they built homes for hurricane victims. Jack attended and graduated from Lehigh University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing after high school. As a freshman, Jack raced breaststroke for Lehigh and qualified for the Patriot League finals in all four of his events.
Charlotte, Jack’s twin sister, was a constant companion and close friend throughout his life. Their friendship was the glue that kept them together, and to say they were inseparable would be an understatement; they balanced each other out. Adam, Jack’s older brother, and Jack had a tight relationship based on a deep and lasting fraternity. They conversed regularly and for an extended period of time. Jack met his fiancé, soul partner, and love of his life, Jack Ciapciak, in 2016. They both recognized straight away that their encounter was unique and unusual, and they became fast friends. Their romance shaped Jack’s life, and they intended to marry in the autumn of 2023. The two Jacks were ecstatic together.
Jack was ecstatic about his new job as Senior Manager of Customer Experience at Brooklinen, as well as the firm for which he had put in so much effort. It was Jack’s dream job, the one he was born for. We will never forget Jack, who was the light of our lives. His beautiful grin, joyful excitement, wonderful attitude, and charming demeanor will live on in our memories till we meet again in the future. Jack, may God bless you. God’s favor… His parents, Susan and Kent Lorentzen of Brick, NJ, his older brother Adam, his sister Charlotte of Hoboken, NJ, and his fiancé, Jack Ciapciak of New York City and St. Louis, MO, survive him.
