Jack was my loving brother and I'm so sad he is no longer with us. He went into the Navy at age 17 and our father had to sign a consent form for him. Jack loved being in the Navy for 4 years. After that he worked several jobs until he found a job with the railroad. It was a long commute from Brewster to NYC , but he didn't seem to mind it as he liked his job.
Jack was easy going and could be so funny at times and made us laugh. He loved being a grandfather and the kids just loved him.
Rest in peace, dear brother.

So sorry to hear of Jack's passing. He meant a lot to the Christian Family and will always be thought of fondly. May all of your happy memories with him help you through this time. I am sure my mom and dad were waiting for him when he entered heaven and now they can continue their Family & Navy discussions! My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Very fond memories of Jack with my son Tim. Jack took the time to sit with an inquisitive young Tim and explain life's secrets to being successful, stories about the Navy, and how to keep a hermit crab alive. I am sure there he shared more but these topics I vividly remember. Jack helped Tim hide a gopher turtle to bring home from NC and only in a way that Jack could, convinced young Tim to allow the turtle to live. There was never a time I saw Jack that he didn't fail to encourage me and make me smile. Heaven gained a great man and I was blessed to know him.

Jack was the closest thing to a brother that my mother, Barbara Nelson Christian, had. I have fond memories of many family visits and Jack was there for my father's Mass of Christian burial. I plan to come for Jack's Mass.
