To the Fairfield City Schools Community:
It is with a heavy heart that we share this sad news. Jeff Clark, former choral director at Fairfield High School, passed away today after a brief battle with colon cancer.
Jeff led our show choir program from 2004 until 2016. During this time, he had a tremendous impact on the success and growth of the program.
His former students will tell you that he brought out the best in them. That he was kind and passionate about the work and created a family among its members. Because of the tireless dedication of Jeff and his colleagues, our student performers received many accolades at the local, state, and national levels. Jeff went on to become the choir and theater director at Indian Hill High School, where he continued to lead by example, inspiring students to be their best, and providing students with “incredible, unparalleled experiences in the arts.”
Information about services will be shared as soon as available.
Please keep Jeff’s family, friends, former and current colleagues, and all students whose lives he touched in your thoughts and prayers.

Chase Pollard, one of Jeff Clark’s choral student at Fairfield High School wrote, “I just want to make a small post about Jeff Clark. My Choir teacher for all my high school years. This man encouraged me and pushed me to try out for solos I never thought I would, and even get one of em. Every time I walked in his class it was a relief knowing I could just be myself freely, and even when I wouldn’t want to be noticed on my bad days he still would make it a point to communicate to and with me. He impacted sooooo so many kids lives probably way more than mine but to know he passed so suddenly and in the prime years of his life, really does get to me. I wish his family and closest friends nothing but love and positivity.”
