Jack E Eadon was born July 6,1949, in Hammond, IN. Jack grew up in Morton Grove, IL. He was a Eagle Scout. He received his BS degree from the University of Illinois-Chicago and his MBA from the University of Chicago. Jack was a renaissance man. He was in the rock band KhazadDoom from 1963-1973. He was a marketing executive with Quaker Oats. In 1983, he became a commercial photographer and opened Jack Eadon Photographic in Tustin, CA in 1985. In 1995, he became a writer, publishing 8 books through Eloquence Press, his publishing company. In 2014 Jack became an artist. His designs could be printed on clothing through his Gel Art Shoppe and his work is available for sale through Fine Art America. Through all this, Jack had 5 brain surgeries for a tumor wrapped around his brain stem. The surgeries took their toll on Jack physically, leaving him unable to swallow and with difficulty walking and talking. But he never gave up hope that he would be able to swallow again. Jack believed in living life in color—no matter what life dealt you, you should forge ahead and live your best life possible. Jack was loved by many and touched the lives of everyone he met. He is survived by his wife Karen and his brothers Scott (Bernadette), Craig (Cindy) and Tom (Constance). He will be missed.
