It is with great sadness that we announce that Junior Players founder, Jane Hook, has passed away after 95 incredible years of making the world a better place. Jane was an exceptional friend, family member, servant leader, and community advocate, and we are all deeply saddened by this loss.

Jane was not just a member of our Junior Players family, but a member of our DFW family as a whole and we know she will be deeply missed. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.kellersoldtownfuneralhome.com for the Hook family. In the meantime, we know Jane would want us to celebrate her life and find happiness in the fact that she lives on through the friendships she made and through the hundreds of thousands of lives she was able to change.
