I came to know about Jack from Jason Zweig's writing. I am also a private investor. I am glad that I know Jack now - an investor with so much discipline. I wish every investor is like Jack. I am so sorry for your loss.

I am Royal and Bernice Cook's youngest daughter. I'm very sorry for your loss; however, just like when Daddy passed away and I thought "he is finally free," I feel the same way about Jack. I'm sure Uncle Albert and Aunt Nora were there to greet him when he arrived "home."

I consider myself fortunate to have gotten to meet Jack, and he was certainly lucky to have you as his partner in life. I will always remember the kind hospitality you both showed me, and I know his story will continue to inspire the many people who seek examples of quiet heroism worth emulating.

I am sorry about the loss of Jack. I admired him as a fellow classmate in Ochlocknee Schools, as a fellow Boy Scout of Troup 319, as a soldier, and as a person who offered so much to all who knew him. What a determined and brave person. I will always remember Jack.
