My uncle Jack he set me up with a retirement annuity. I didn't understand annuities very well so I trusted him to give me the best they had to offer. We just spoke about that the week before he went into the hospital. He always checked with me to make sure I understood what I had. Loved him for that! A childhood memory we went to Colorado when I was 14 to the Bar Lazy J dude ranch. One of my best vacations growing up. Jack and Deanne picked us up at the airport and took us to the ranch. Very fond memories of that trip. I visited Colorado last year and looked up the dude ranch and got current pictures of the place and sent them to Jack out of the blue said "Remember this place". Him and Deanne called me. Greg and I will miss you a great deal! Love you uncle Jack! Tonja

I have so many wonderful memories of Jack. I thought it was wonderful to have a big brother. I was so proud of him, always wanting to share his accomplishments with everyone I knew. I could always go to him for advice and know I could trust what ever he told me. He has worked hard all of his life. His family means the world to me. I will cherish all my memories , I love him and he will be sorely missed until we meet again. Jean

To the Anderson Family,

Jack was dedicated to his Family, Profession, and volunteering. I knew Jack through the Optimist Club Of Indianapolis. He was a fellow President of the Club and President of the Foundation. He very seldom missed a meeting and truly lived the Optimist Creed.
Jack was my Financial Planner until I moved to North Carolina and looked out for my family’s best interest. Always remember the good times. He would expect that from all of us.

Jack was my first friend in the life insurance business while here in Indiana, and that friendship started 50 years ago. We have many memories which include family vacations together, fishing in Florida, sharing sales ideas, to name just a few. I will miss him dearly and our thoughts and prayers are given for his family.

Old friends are the best friends and I have known Jack for over 60 years. We met when we were both struggling to get ahead and Jack became one of the most respected and successful men in his field.
He was a close friend to me when I really needed his friendship and he was always there as a trusted friend to talk to.
I have so many cherished memories of him on a fishing trip to Canada, a football trip to Notre Dame, boating on Morse and many fun nights out for dinner.
He leaves behind many loving thoughts and memories for all of us.
Rest in peace dear friend.

My condolences to the family. I was one of Jacks first clients. I still remember him sitting in our kitchen in 1963 or 64. He sold me a $10,000.00 policy. I was still in high school. He visited my home a few times over the years, and met my wife and kids, and updated my life insurance accordingly.
One of the nicest men I have ever known.

I was saddened to see Jack's smiling face as I read the paper this morning. Jack was a true professional in the insurance industry and if I weren't in the business my whole career the same as Jack, I would have wanted him to be my life insurance agent.

We were so sad to hear about the passing of Jack. He was our financial advisor from the time we got married 46 years ago. Bob and I loved our annual meetings with him to talk not only finances but share our family updates and stories! Jack and Bob both loved cycling so that was always the topic of conversation. Our heartfelt prayers for your entire family. He will be missed but Heaven has a great new Angel!
