On the evening of April 6, 2020, John (Jack) F. McCourt Sr, 59, of Philadelphia, passed away suddenly while in the care of Nazareth Hospital. Born on June 5, 1960, he was the son of Joan McCourt and the late Edward McCourt Sr. Raised in Philadelphia’s Juniata Park neighborhood, he was a proud graduate of the Northeast Catholic High School, class of ‘78, and remained an integral organizing force in the alumni community throughout his life. He was also a graduate of La Salle University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology.

An avid sports fan, he was known as “Coach Jack” to the many young athletes of both the Oxford Circle Raiders and the Somerton Spartans.

McCourt Jr, Krista McCourt, and Brendan McCourt; his siblings, Edward (Mary) McCourt Jr, Joseph (Marian) McCourt, Terrence (Tracy) McCourt, Joni (Joseph) Gillespie, Dennis McCourt, and Megan (Greg) Laskowski; and numerous nieces and nephews.
