John "Jack" Dexter Obituary

John Morton Dexter, "Jack", was born to John and Dorothy Dexter on June 18, 1939 in Wilmington, California and graduated from Banning High School in 1957.

After three months of courtship, Jack and Jeannie secretly eloped on November 30, 1958. He had three children. Robyn, was born in 1960, followed by Paul in 1966 and Jennifer in 1969.

A building contractor by trade, he built many of the patio covers, decks and gazebos around Orange County, where he and Jeannie lived many years.

At the age of 33, Jack read the Gospel of John, chapter 1, and his life was changed after discovering that Jesus was not just a man, but God come in the flesh. After that he boldly talked to anyone about Jesus who would listen.

In the 1980's Jack pastored churches in Lake Elsinore, California and Dayton, Ohio. He soon realized that evangelism was his true gift and was led into prison ministry with Jeannie, for which they traveled to 38 states and 4 countries.

Jack and Jeannie settled in Beaumont, California in 2008, where they enjoyed 15 years together before he passed on November 21, 2023. Jack was blessed with 8 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren, whom he has passed down a beautiful legacy of living for Christ.
