Jon Stainbrook

April 12, 1941 — June 3, 2010


The original "Dirty Jack", Jon Dallas Stainbrook, passed away peacefully on June 3, 2010 at St. John's Living Center after a long and courageous battle with MS.

Jon was born on April 12, 1941, in Dallas, Texas, and moved to Jackson with his family in 1948. He attended school in Jackson and graduated from Jackson Hole High School. He graduated from Arizona State and his travels took him to Pittsburgh. He obtained a job as a producer with a fledgling company and founder of Wide World of Sports Roone Arledge. His main job was producing and directing Pittsburgh Steelers Football home and away games in the sixties. He dearly loved his Steelers.

He returned to Jackson where he founded and opened "dirty Jack's" Wild West Theatre in 1972. Dirty Jack's had a successful run for twenty-three years.

He is preceded in death by his mother and father Doris and Jon Stainbrook, and little sister Nancy Stainbrook.

He is survived by his children Heidi Stockwell, Jon H. Stainbrook, and Heather Stainbrook; his sisters Gretchen Stainbrook Givins, Kathy Stainbrook, and nieces and nephews, Gretchen's kids, John and Mindy Kries, and Kathy's kids Mathew and Michael Rohde.

There will be a private family memorial at a future date. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Jon's name to St. John's Living Center. His family and this community are truly blessed to have such an extraordinary facility staffed with loving, caring and nurturing nurses, doctors and care givers. Please stop by, visit them and the residents, and experience the marvelous treasure we are fortunate to have in this valley.

To quote Bruce Springsteen, "When they made you Brother, they broke the mold".
