Jan and all the Family,
We have just learned of Jackie's passing, and we are so sorry. Jackie and I lived next door, played together, and attended school together from the time we were five years old. He and Debbie were always good friends to Gail and me, and it saddens me deeply to know that they are both gone.
Please know that you and all the family are in our thoughts and prayers.

We attended Mansfield High School and though not in Jackie's class, we are saddened to hear of the passing of an alumni.
Prayers for the family.

Jack was a very good friend and anyone that met him liked him. He was pleasant to be around and you always had a good time around him.
I remember a time I was upset and sad about something... he told me to not let it get to me so much... that life goes on and it would all workout and he gave me a hug.
We where good friends and when he retired he was so happy. He said he was going to just take life one day at a time and enjoy. Which that was Jack.
