Jack Bernard Martin, age 2 ½, died on Tuesday June 5, 2018, by accidental drowning while on vacation with his family in Mexico.
Jack was born on August 26, 2015, in Indianapolis, Indiana, to parents Ken and Amy Martin. He attended the Children's Circle Preschool at Second Presbyterian Church. A joyful, outgoing two-year old, Jack never met a stranger. He woke up singing each morning and greeted each day with a smile and a sparkle in his deep blue eyes. He gave the most amazing hugs. He loved scootering around Meridian Kessler, playing iPad with his brother and sister, and watching Cars 3 and Captain Underpants. He wore his Spiderman and Superman costumes everywhere. His constant companion was Quinny, his favorite lovey.
Jack is survived by his parents, Ken and Amy; his brother JR; his sister Alex; his paternal great-grandmother, Prudence Martin; his paternal grandparents, Jack and Chris Martin; his maternal grandparents, Bernard and Toni Sander; 4 uncles; 4 aunts and 6 cousins.
Services will take place at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church at 5692 Central Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana. The wake will be held on Tuesday, June 12, 2018, from 4:00-8:00pm. Mass of Christian Burial will be on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 10:00 am.
Donations can be made in Jacks Honor with funds to be used to help those in need to further their education. A cause near and dear to Amy's family. Send to: Morgan Stanley 800 East 96th St. Ste 400 Indianapolis, IN 46240 or visit the Martin family page through What Friends Do at:

I didn't know Jack or his family but I'm compelled to offer my sincerest condolences. I can't comprehend losing a child so young with such a beautiful heart. But I sense Jack will be ever present in your lives in ways only he could. While your pain must be excruciating, I trust it wil diminish with time. He will never be forgotten.
