Pvt. 2nd Class Jack Lee Diener, 20 was killed in Afghanistan this past week.

While specifics and details remain unknown, the wake of Diener’s passing has been significant among those who knew him.

Diener, a 2009 graduate of Boyne City High School, was known by many for his sense of humor, dedication, and willingness to be there for others.

“Boyne City lost one of its fine young men yesterday,” wrote Elise Freed, a fellow Boyne graduate on Diener’s Facebook wall, which has become an impromptu memorial.

Freed has not been alone in sharing her sorrow, she has been joined by dozens of friends and family who have added their condolances, memories, and surprise to Facebook.

Diener’s high school career included a span of employment at Glen’s Market in Boyne City, a stint as an exchange student to Denmark, and time as a proud Rambler Football player.

Flags are currently at half staff in Diener’s honor in Boyne City, and more information will be published as it becomes available.  At the time of this posting, information from the Department of Defense was not yet available.  Continue to visit this website for further information regarding this story.
