I meet Jack on the poker site as well. Jack was quite a character with so many quick comments that would give so many a grin and a laugh. Jack had to have been Alabamas number one fan. He would always text me with a count down till game time, Roll Tide Roll ! Such a good man, proud husband, father, and veteran. My condolences to Madean and your sons, family, and host of friends. We miss you, but never forget you my friend.

Met Jack on a poker site, at first, we challenged each other to the bitter end. Has time went on , we started to share our stories of life events. The more we talked , the more I liked him ,respected him, even thou he was a Alabama Tide fan and I was born a Ohio State Buckeye. Shared a few barbs back & forth my friend and I.
Use to go to the site and expect to see him there and if he wasn't where we normally go , I would find him and him me. Go there now, just not the same, the memory of all the laughs take on a different meaning. RIP my friend
Condolences Madean and your fine family who you were so proud of.
