Jack Snow was a receiver for the Los Angeles Rams for 11 years after being selected in the first round of the 1965 NFL Draft by Minnesota. He was traded to the Rams soon after and finished his career with the team. He played college football at Notre Dame, where he was a member of the College All Star team in 1965 and a consensus All American in 1964. He finished fifth in Heisman Trophy voting that year.
Jack embraced his role as an analyst, emissary and advisor for the Rams. He worked as part of the Rams radio broadcasts for the entire time the team was in St. Louis as well as three seasons before that with the team in Los Angeles.
His off the field contributions extended well beyond radio and television. Jack was an integral part of many of the team’s charitable efforts. He lent his time to various charities and philanthropic efforts including the Epilepsy Foundation, Project Angel Tree, ALIVE, Girls Inc., Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and Juvenile Diabetes.
Jack was married for 34 years to his High School sweetheart, Merry Carole Shane, who passed away in 1998 from Thyroid Cancer. They had three children, Michelle, J.T., and Stephanie and were proud grandparents to their eight grandchildren Erica, Olivia, Jake, Shane, Merry Madison, Lauren, Raquel and Jack Barclay. Sadly, Jack passed away on January 9, 2006, after struggling with complications from a staph infection; only nine months after his youngest granddaughter, Raquel, was born.
