Dear Jack:
Since our seniority was so close we shared several classes together at the TWA training center in Kansas City.
We found so much humor in life and shared many laughs and jokes whenever we met on the line be it in St Louis or overseas.
It sure was a bright day whenever I met you. Also, since I lived in Brookfield, and later in Bridgewater, we enjoyed many of the same dear friends. I remember a good day when you and the boys came up to our B & B in Kent.
What a great supporter you were for fair play and peoples rights.
A very peaceful journey to you dear old friend, we'll keep you safe in our hearts,
Alan Hodgson & Brenda. TWA Cap. (Ret.)

Sorry to read of “Uncle” Jack’s passing. There are so many fond memories of Jack at our house or us in Bethel. My dad and Jack were long time friends. From their years with TWA, to hunting deer in NY, boy could those two tell a story. Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends Jack leaves behind.

Very sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. I knew Jack from many lunches at Armandos in Bethel. He was a good friend and great conversationist.

I knew Jack through his relationship with my sister Trish Bogart as he attended many of her extended family gatherings. His love for Trish was very true as was hers for him. The whole Goess family wishes to extend their condolences to his immediate family and loved ones. They have our deepest sympathies and hope they may find comfort in knowing that Jack was cared for by so many of Trish’s relatives and friends. May he Rest In Peace.
