BEDFORD, N.Y. – Jack Egan Reyna, 13, of Bedford Corners, died July 19 after a two-year battle with brain cancer.
He was born April 9, 1999, in Wolfsburg, Germany, to Claudio and Danielle Reyna and was the older brother of Giovanni, Joah-Mikel and Carolina. Jack attended Greenwich Country Day School in Greenwich, Conn., and would wake up eager to go to school every morning, his family said. His father is a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame.

Reyna enjoyed playing soccer and was proud to wear his New York Sports Club jersey with his fellow soccer players.
