Gregory Jaques

November 25, 1951 — March 23, 2023

Gregory R. Jaques, 71, loving and compassionate husband, father, and grandfather, of Fayetteville, PA, passed away Thursday, March 23, 2023, in the Chambersburg Hospital. Born November 25, 1951, in Rock Island, IL, he was the son of the later Alfred W. and Helen M. (Petersen).

Greg attended United Township High School graduating with the class of 1969. After obtaining his bachelor's degree from Black Hawk College of East Moline, IL, Greg served with the United States Air Force from April 12, 1972, until his honorable discharge November 26, 1976.

Retiring as a physician's assistant after a number of years at Dunham Army Health Clinic, Carlisle, PA, he had previously worked as a PA in York and Greencastle.

Having an interest in golf, he enjoyed playing in the early mornings while enjoying the outdoors. Planning yearly family vacations to Myrtle Beach with his family and grandchildren whom he loved dearly was important to him. After his
