We were lucky enough to live next door to Jack and Jane for nearly a decade. In that time, not only did they become our community - they became our family. Jack played the part of a father figure that I never had, and for all of his wisdom, stories and humor - I am forever grateful. Though we moved away five years ago, those years spent on 10th street with our neighbor-family are the ones we look back on with greatest fondness ... and that is largely due to Jack. We miss you. We love you. Always. Norris Family

I met Jack while working with Jane at St.Vincent. He had a smile and energy about him that was absolutely infectious and could tell a story like no one I have ever met. He was funny and kind and generous and will be sorely missed by anyone who had the good fortune to have had Jack as a part of their life.
