Jack Owen Blake
Birth: Oct. 18, 1961
Watertown
Jefferson County
New York, USA
Death: May 7, 1972
Watertown
Jefferson County
New York, USA

Jack Owen Blake was born October 18, 1961 at Mercy Hospital in Watertown NY, the son of Allen E and Mary Lawton Blake. Jack had blond hair, freckles, big ears and a pug nose, and was a typical, fun-loving 5th grader. He was the 7th of nine children, and once saved his older sister from drowning in the Black River.

Jack left his family far too soon, on May 7, 1972, the first victim of serial killer Arthur Shawcross. He was missing for four months before being found and returned to his family.

He was buried in North Watertown cemetery in September 1972. He is in Section W, in an unmarked grave between the graves of William Howard and Leland Parker. The funeral home marker with his name was stolen many years ago, and only a concrete square remains to identify the site.

UPDATE:
November 2013 - A childhood friend of Jack contacted his family and anonymously donated a marker for Jack. It has been installed at a dedication ceremony November 26, 2013.
