John (Jack) Warren Schropp, 77, son of Jack and Rosemary LaBie Schropp, died on January 14, 2018 at 7 p.m. of Alzheimer's Disease in Peterborough, Canada where he lived with his wife and love, Shari Darling.

Jack was a man of goodness and integrity, wisdom, and humor. He had a deep love for his wife, children, and grandchildren as well as tremendous compassion and love for all human beings. He considered himself a citizen of the world, standing for world peace and for the well-being of all people.

A graduate of the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Mr. Schropp served twenty-four years in the U.S. Navy, including three tours in the Vietnam War as a UDT Frogmam/Navy SEAL. He and his team were awarded the Presidential Unit Citation by President Johnson at the White House. Mr. Schropp retired as Navy SEAL Commander on March 15, 1982.

After his Navy service, Jack went on to work for Landmark Education Inc., as a Forum Leader conducting leadership/transformational programs for the general public, corporations, and organizations around the world for twenty-eight years, retiring in 2010. Jack led courses to more than 100,000 people worldwide.

A published author, Schropp wrote the book Unbeatable-Recreate Your Life as Extraordinary Using the Secrets of a Navy SEAL. He used this book to conduct his own unique program based on the secrets to being UNBEATABLE for personal success- secrets distilled from BUD/s (Navy SEAL) training and from personal wisdom and experience attained through military service and civilian life.

He is survived by his wife, Shari Darling, Peterborough, Ontario; brother, Michael Schropp, Petaluma, CA; sister, Jill Schropp, Seattle, WA; his five children, Kim Reese, Amy Heavey, Sara Caudill, Erin Schropp, and Christopher Schropp; as well as four grandchildren, Emily and Hayden Reese, Jake and Wesley Caudill.
