Jack Douglas Jenkins

THE FAMILY REQUESTS THAT NO FLOWERS OR GIFTS BE SENT TO THE FUNERAL HOME OR RESIDENCE..

Jack   Douglas   Jenkins,   age   77,   of   Brentwood,   a   native   of   Red   Boiling   Springs,   TN,   passed   away 
 on   May   20,   2020   at   Alive   Hospice   in   Nashville,   after   a   long   struggle   with   cancer.   
 
Jack   was   one   of   seven   children,   born   to   the   late   Gordon   and   Lucille   (McGehee)   Jenkins   in   Red 
 Boiling   Springs,   TN   .    In   addition   to   his   parents,   he   was   preceded   in   death   by   a   brother,   Roger 
 and   by   sisters,   Martha   and   Mary.   
 
At   the   age   of   21,   he   married   the   former   Nina   Russell   on   September   12,   1964,   who   survives   and 
 lives   in   Brentwood.    They   had   the   perfect   marriage,   remaining   best   friends   throughout   their 
 married   life.    During   Jack’s   career   as   an   executive   with   PEP   Industries   and   Alcoa,   they   lived   in 
 Nashville,   San   Antonio,   TX   and   La   Quinta,   CA   where   they   made   lifelong   friends   in   each 
 location.    He   took   pride   in   his   work,   earning   his   college   degree   while   raising   his   sons,   but   his 
 real   love   was   for   his   wife   and   family.    Work   took   them   all   over   the   world   and   they   met   many 
 good   friends.    He   especially   enjoyed   playing   golf   and   had   many   wonderful   experiences.    He   was 
 deeply   connected   and   cared   about   the   people   he   worked   with   and   that   was   reciprocated   by   so 
 many   of   them.   
 
Jack   had   a   great   love   for   his   family,   including   his   two   sons   and   their   spouses,   Doug   and   Cindy 
 Jenkins   and   John   and   Pily   Jenkins,   and   including   his   six   grandchildren   and   their   spouses,   and 
 two   great-grandchildren.   He   is   also   survived   by   three   brothers,   Don,   Jimmy   and   Joe,   and   many 
 nieces   and   nephews. 
 
 His   gentle   nature,   easy   conversation   and   laughter   will   be   missed   by   the   many   that   loved   him.   
 
The family has requested a private   family   graveside   service with IMMEDIATE FAMILY ONLY.  The graveside will be held on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at the Anderson   &   Son   Memorial   Park   in  Lafayette,   TN,  .   
 
The   family   encourages   donations   to   Alive   Hospice   of   Nashville,   who   provided   compassionate 
 and   loving   care   in   the   last   few   days   of   Jack’s   life,   or   to   the   Charity   of   your   choice.    You   may   also  make   these   memorials   by   calling   or   coming   by   the   funeral   home. THE FAMILY REQUEST THAT NO FLOWERS OR GIFTS BE SENT TO THE FUNERAL HOME OR RESIDENCE..

Dear Nina & family, we offer our deepest condolences to you & your family. It was such a sweet pleasure to have known & spend time with you & Jack during you stay in Dominion. You both always had such a lively & uplifting disposition. Its funny how certain things will always remind you of someone. Ill always think of Jack when Im at the butcher counter at HEB. He was having the butcher cut only one 21/2 T-bone steak. Chuck asked him where was your steak and he said Oh, she takes the center (which we know is the best) part of the steak! We laughed and thought that was a pretty good deal. We are so sad to hear of Jacks passing and know what a great loss this is for you. Please know that our love & prayers are with you. God Bless you, Chuck & Carolyn Ruble, 3 Century Glen, SAT 78257
