From the 1939 Lucky Bag:
JACK ELLIS BRENNER
From a lonely little plebe with a lost air, Jack has become a self-controlled, nonchalant upperclassman. Okmulgee can justly be proud of him. He has taken part in several extra-curricular activities, made an excellent scholastic record, and helped many a wooden man along. Above all he has made lasting friendship—it comes naturally to him. Neither a redmike nor a snake, Jack has done his quota of dragging without placing too much emphasis on either role. To his inquisitive attitude towards everything in general can be attributed his habit of studying very little. Reading some current book during a study hour and then "guessing" his way to starring marks in class is an everyday occurrence with him. How does he do it? Even he doesn't know.

He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery; he was survived by his wife, Edna.
