Does your FI want to include her in the program?

If so, maybe a section labeled: In Memory of or Remembering our loved Ones

I forgot to mention. I wouldn’t put it under “parents of the groom” since people who don’t know she’s passed will think she’s still alive.

You could always put a page in it, like a tribute page.  One like this “To those loved ones who could not be here today, we wish you could be standing with us, but we know you are here in spirit” then list the names of those who have passed on.

I’m wondering the same thing!  Is it weird to write “John Smith & the late Jane Smith”??  Also, are you putting the stepmother’s name somewhere?

You could write:

“Jane Doe, mother of the groom, present today in spirit.

Mr. and Mrs. John Doe – parents of the groom”

Or something along those lines? I can understand why he would want her name to appear there, but I’ve only seen a section for tributes to those who are no longer living and that is where I would think to put it. The only reason I personally think it works better in that section is because there is no explanation needed (that she is deceased). But if it is important for him to have her name under parents, then you can do that too.
