Jack Robert Bulk

Jack Robert Bulk, 24, of Wilmington, Delaware passed away suddenly on January 17, 2023. He was a 2016 graduate of Wilmington Friends School (WFS), where he was a “lifer.” WFS afforded him the life-changing opportunity to do a junior year abroad in France with School Year Abroad (SYA). Where his Quaker education grounded him in critical thinking, community service, and meaningful friendships, his SYA experience gave him a taste for all that the world may offer. His decision to attend New York University in Abu Dhabi was a logical choice. He earned a BA in Economics/ Finance in 2020. While in the Middle East Jack forged close friendships with fellow students from all over the world, particularly his best mate from Australia. His adventures took him to India, Thailand, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Oman, and numerous other countries. One of his favorite things to do in Abu Dhabi was camp in the desert with his Emirati friends.

Upon his return to the US during the pandemic he decided to work as a classroom facilitator at Wilmington Friends School. This led him to confirm his love for working with children. He served as a middle school Math teacher at Stem Civics Charter Academy in Trenton, NJ. He worked hard to minimize pandemic learning loss and to instill good citizenship and a love of learning in his students.

Scouting was an important part of Jack’s life, he became Troop 29's 111th Eagle Scout in 2015. He served many leadership roles, often working to educate the younger troops in Scout craft, and foreshadowing his profession as a teacher. Thanks to Troop 29 he relished high adventure trips to Philmont Ranch, NM, Adirondak high peaks, and long wilderness canoe trips.

Friends and family remember his affable nature, kindness, quick wit, and brilliant smile. He truly took to heart the importance of being trustworthy and true to oneself. He was a loyal friend, and a loving son and brother.

He is survived by his mother, Bradey Bulk, brother Toby (Troop 29's 130thEagle Scout), grandmother Terrie, uncle Max (Houston, TX) and his wife Heather, cousins Emma and Will, and Augie Doggie, and best friend Ryan Wood and the Wood family.

SCOUTING promises you the great outdoors. As a Scout, you can learn how to camp and hike without leaving a trace and how to take care of the land. You'll study wildlife up close and learn about nature all around you. There are plenty of skills for you to master, and you can teach others what you have learned. Everyone helping everyone else - that's part of Scouting, too.

SCOUTING promises you friendship. Members of the troop you join might be boys you already know, and you will meet many other Scouts along the way. Some could become lifelong friends.

SCOUTING promises you opportunities to work toward the Eagle Scout rank. You will set positive goals for yourself and then follow clear routes to achieve them.

SCOUTING promises you tools to help you make the most of your family, your community,and your nation. The good deeds you perform every day will improve the lives of those around you. You will be prepared to help others in time of need.

SCOUTING promises you experiences and duties that will help you mature into a strong, wise adult. The Scout Oath and the Scout Law can guide you as a Scout and throughout your life

  • Make some of the best friends you'll ever make in your life!
  • Go on camping trips to some of the best places. Even places where the average public is not allowed!
  • Learn some very valuable skills that can help you in your future life!
  • Have experiences that you will remember for the rest of your life!
  • Remember the time you spend as a youth as the most enjoyable part of your life!
Scouting is about learning skills that you'd never learn in any other youth group. Sure you learn how to tie knots but you also learn First Aid, Outdoor Skills and Navigational Skills. It's all about learning how to survive, not just in the woods but in the real world as well! Scouting offers over 100 different topics to learn about. They cover topics from Sports, to Indian Lore, to White Water Rafting and Back Packing.

Since 1910, these principles have been taught in an atmosphere of recreation and fun, which allow young people to develop self-confidence, leadership and moral character. More and more men, trained as Scouts, are taking their places in today's world as responsible adult leaders. Men, who earned badges as Scouts, sit on the Supreme Court and in the chambers of Congress.

Troop 29 is sponsored by Red Clay Creek Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, Delaware.

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law.

All boys of scouting age are welcome to become new members of our troop.

Eagle Scouts: Merit Beyond the Merit Badge

One hundred years after Arthur Eldred of New York earned this nation's first Eagle Scout Award, new, independent research demonstrates the significant, positive impact Eagle Scouts have on society every day. Since it was first awarded in 1912, more than 2 million young men have achieved the Boy Scouts of America's highest rank. The study conducted by Baylor University, Merit Beyond the Badges, found that Eagle Scouts are more likely than men who have never been in Scouting to:
  • Have higher levels of planning and preparation skills, be goal-oriented, and network with others
  • Be in a leadership position at their place of employment or local community
  • Report having closer relationships with family and friends
  • Volunteer for religious and nonreligious organizations
  • Donate money to charitable groups
  • Work with others to improve their neighborhoods

"The religion of a man is not the creed he professes but his life - what he acts upon, and knows of life, and his duty in it. A bad man who believes in a creed is no more religious than the good man who does not." - Baden-Powell quoting Carlyle
