On February 27, 2013 the Christoval ISD Board passed a motion to rename their High School Football Stadium in honor of the lifetime achievements of a favorite son, Jack Pardee ‘57. Jack and wife of 50 years, Phyllis, have five children & 12 grandchildren. Travel remains difficult for Phyllis, but she is thrilled and recently told me “this is the greatest Jack has ever received.” The family will be represented by son-in-law, Scott Brown of Denver, Colorado.
You are invited to join us at the Christoval 2013 Homecoming to celebrate & honor Jack.
October 4, 2013, Christoval High School, Christoval, Texas

Jack was Texas A&M’s first football Academic All-American. He is the only 6-Man player who played in the NFL and he was also a five-time Coach of the Year. Jack was a great Aggie, but an even better person and loyal friend. He was the example of a devoted husband and father.
“Toughest player I ever coached”, Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. Jack’s lifetime achievements will seldom, if ever be equaled!
