Jane Kristen Marczewski (Nightbirde)

Nashport OH – Jane Kristen Marczewski (31) also known as Nightbirde, of Nashport OH, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on February 19, 2022 after a four-year battle with cancer. She most recently resided in San Clemente CA with her brother Andrew. She was born December 29, 1990 in Zanesville OH to Mitchell and Sharon Marczewski and survived by siblings Mitchell Jr (Brook), Andrew and Katelyn Marczewski; step-grandfather and grandmother Richard and Elizabeth Rumora; Uncle Keith and Aunt Sheryl Ross; Uncle John Marczewski; Aunt Susan Marczewski; cousins Jason, John Jr and Michael Marczewski; nephews Mitchell III and Jude Marczewski; niece Magnolia Marczewski and numerous family and friends. She was a 2009 graduate of Licking County Christian Academy in Heath OH and a 2013 graduate of Liberty University in Lynchburg VA with a Bachelor of Arts in marketing. Jane was a hard worker and during the summers for about six years she worked at Olive Garden in Heath and in Lynchburg. Many remember her as the winner of Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer on America’s Got Talent in 2021 with her original hit song It’s OK which charted No. 1 on iTunes with 39 million views on YouTube. Her other top songs include New Year’s Eve, Girl in a Bubble, and Brave. Before she became Nightbirde, she dedicated her high school years volunteering with the youth ministry at Cornerstone Church in Heath and spent many nights and weekends leading worship at Christian events throughout the state. It was during this time when she cultivated her love for music and ministry. During college she became a prolific songwriter and local performer. When not writing or singing, she shared Jesus with underprivileged youngsters in her neighborhood while providing them snacks after school. After college she moved to Nashville to continue her career and attended The Belonging Church and became a worship leader and youth camp counselor, and ministered to women inmates at the Davidson County Jail. Many came to know the Lord because of her evangelism and commitment to Christ. She had a larger-than-life personality and sense of humor with a witty joke for every occasion—even if the joke was on her. Her lasting legacy will be the gift of hope she communicated through music and the strength she found in Jesus. A Celebration of Life Service will be held Friday March 4, 2022 at 7:00 PM at Cornerstone Church, 4905 Jacksontown Rd, Heath OH.
