Would like to hear how things work out with your situation.
Did you include with your offer a pre-approval or pre-qualification letter from a Lender?

You have not given enough information here for anyone to give you any kind of good advice. Are you working with an agent or did you make the offer directly yourself? Was your earnest money check cashed? The check should not be cashed unless your offer was accepted. Did you put a stop payment on your check? Do the sellers have an agent or are they selling by owner? Are there other issues going on here that we are unaware of. Do you see where I'm going here. It is impossible for anyone to give you advice without have all the information.
If you have an agent, you need to speak to him/her. If you can't get any answers from your agent, then you need to call the broker. If you are not working with an agent and trying to do this on your own, here is another perfect example why it is better to have an agent on your side.
If you provide the answers to some of the questions above, we may be able to provide you with a plan of action. Good luck to you.

That can be a truly frustrating situation. A lot of good answers have been provided to you. Sometimes its easier to discuss all the details privately. Please feel to touch base with me if you'd like and I can give some additional advice. I also have an attorney that specializes in real estate law if it needs to go that far. Chances are, with some more info from you, it wouldn't need to go that far.
Thank you for the question,

Discuss with your agent the strategy of submitting an earnest money check with unaccepted offers.
You may have alternatives but Jackson, MI real estate law will dictate.
Best of success to you,
