Greg Jungeblut

Greg Jungeblut.jpgGreg Jungeblut was a remarkable man. He was a loving husband to Laura, and an amazing father to his three sons, Adam, Neal, and Grant. To his friends, he was someone whose faithfulness was a certainty and whose integrity was without question. Greg had a servant's heart and would do anything for anyone. He never met a stranger.

None of this changed for Greg, even after he was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme at the age of 56. While this horrific diagnosis came out of the blue, Greg calmly and faithfully turned it over to his God and began the journey he believed he was ordained to take. Never asking why, he instead asked how could he make a difference.

Not long after his initial surgery and radiation, he began reaching out to others, donning a volunteer jacket at MD Anderson, and speaking at men's retreats. His faith never wavered, instead, he was a rock for everyone else. Greg kept the faith, fought the good fight, and met his Savior face-to-face on July 3, 2009, almost two and half years from that initial diagnosis.

Greg often reminded others of this life-changing charge: "You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who could never repay you."

To honor his legacy, his family formed team Remembering Greg, to raise money for brain cancer research at MD Anderson. We continue to fight to make a difference for those who must take this journey after us. Greg's presence is felt daily, and his love lives on in his children and grandchildren. He is with us wherever we go, and we are grateful for all that he gave us.
