My memories of Jack go back to the 1970's and water ski racing throughout Arizona & California. I skied behind Jack one year at the National Championships in Lakeport, CA, when my regular driver had engine trouble. We didn't win anything but definitely went fast. I also sold a race engine to Jack that performed very well for him. I remember Jack as a fun guy and fierce competitor. May his soul rest in peace!

Sorry to hear of Jack's passing. I worked for Jack in the mid 70s for about two years. I have a lot of memories of those days working with Jack , Frank and Cecil. Jack and Nancy attended our wedding in 1975. We were all in the Desert Boat and Ski club. At one race at lake Havasu, my regular boat driver Mike Crutchfield couldn't pull me, so Jack pulled me. We had the far outside 10th pole position and won! He was a determined competitor .
