Jack Bennie Beasley

Jack Beasley, 67 years old, of Houston, Texas, passed away Monday, May 25, 2015, at West Houston Medical Center. He was born June 5, 1947, in Freeport, Texas.

Jack was preceded in death by his parents, Brad and Eunice Beasley, of Oyster Creek; and younger brother, Lee Bradley Beasley, of Angleton.

Jack is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Owen Beasley; and his children, Brandon Kyle Beasley, and Jaclyn Elizabeth Beasley. Jack leaves behind one sister, Geraldine White and husband, Dean, of Brazoria; two brothers, Dr. Kennith Beasley, DVM, of Buffalo, Charlie Beasley and wife, Gina, of Angleton; and many nieces and nephews.

Jack grew up in Oyster Creek, attended Freeport Junior High, and was part of the Class of 65 at Brazosport High School.

Jack grew up as a cowboy, breaking colts and helping with the family horse breeding operation. His senior year he was crowned Texas State Champion High School Bull Rider, and represented Brazosport High School at the National High School Rodeo Finals in Ogallala, Nebraska.

Jack went on to rodeo professionally in the Rodeo Cowboys Association, International Rodeo Association, and Texas Rodeo Association where he again won Texas State Champion Bull Rider on a professional level in 1973.

Even after he quit competing, Jack stayed involved in working to make rodeo a greater spectator sport. He was Judging Commissioner for the IRA in 1978, and General Manager of the International Finals Rodeo in 1980.

Aside from his love of rodeo, Jack was a Certified Electrician, he loved spending time on his south Texas deer lease in Hebbronville, and enjoyed fishing the 4th of July Fishin’ Fiesta with friends and family. He would never let you forget that he was a past Fiesta Champion, winning the Crevalle Jack category in 1995. He was a dedicated family man and never missed a school function, or sporting event his children were involved in.

Services honoring and celebrating the life of Jack Bennie Beasley will be held at First Baptist Church in Brazoria at 101 E San Bernard Street on June 20, 2015, at 11:30 a.m.

Jack was a great guy. In all the years since high school I have never met anyone like Jack. He loved rodeo, horses, and the cowboy life. Truly authentic character and never afraid to voice his opinion. Via con Dios
