John Francis “Jack” Manion

East Lansing, Michigan.

In loving memory of John Francis “Jack” Manion, who went to eternal rest on May 11, 2022 after a fatal car crash. He leaves behind many saddened loving family and friends, first and foremost his beloved wife, Olivia Aspiras. Jack was born on October 30, 1992 in La Crosse, WI. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Thomas A. Manion, and is survived by his parents, Amy and Andrew Manion; his parents-in-law, Julie and Demetrio Aspiras; his grandmother, Maureen O. Manion; grandparents, Mary and Edward Schlumpf; brother, Kevin Manion; sister, Clare Manion; sisters-in-law, Kristina Kodzev, Jessica Aspiras and Miranda Aspiras; brother-in-law, Demetrio “Trio” Aspiras; 6 uncles; 7 aunts; 20 cousins; 3 cousins-in-law; 3 nieces; 3 nephews; and 2 cousins once removed.

Jack graduated from Benet Academy in Lisle, Illinois, then earned his bachelor’s degree from the College of Wooster, OH. It was at College of Wooster that he met Olivia Aspiras, and the two were married on June 23, 2018. Jack was an account executive for Quicken Loans/Rocket Pro TPO, where he has worked since graduating from college in May of 2015. He played lacrosse in high school and college. Jack loved to read, cook, play cards and boardgames, watch movies, play video games, hike, ski, and cycle. He loved his wife and his family and he loved his Corgis, Winston and Franklin, and his cats, Lily and Luna. He is sadly missed and happily remembered by everyone he knew.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Karl Pung at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, at St. Mary Cathedral, 219 Seymour Ave., Lansing, MI 48933.  The family will receive friends at the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel on Monday from 5-8 p.m.

Those who wish may make a memorial contribution, in loving memory of Jack, to the Capital Area Humane Society.
