During my incredible, yet brief friendship with Jack, we connected on so many levels. In one of our conversations, I said to him, "Not everyone can be a 'life long friend'. Some people are put into our life to take us from one point to another." I am honored that I was one of the Forum friends that took him from one point to another...and knowing Jack as I did...that is indeed, Heaven. XO

Jack was my football coach at IHM for a few years. He always yelled at me(I think he yelled at everyone). But what I didn't know was that he cared. After football was over he always said hi to me by my first name in church or whenever else he saw me. He had a gentle soul and was someone I always respected growing up. May God bless Jack and his family.

Our prayers and thoughts are with Jack's family at this time. I have known Jack since we were kids because our mothers had been childhood friends. Jack and I were Phi Delta Theta Fraternity brothers at Butler and always found Jack to be a loyal friends. He was a true patriot in his service to our country. I have some great memories of our long friendship. "In coelo quies est". In Heaven there is rest! Yours in the Bond!

To The Vannice Family,
Please accept our condolences and count on our prayers. I found it a real honor to be among Jack's circle of friends. He gave his best on every work project and expected the same from his vendors.
He was proud of his accomplishments and his family.

What a wonderful person and mentor to so many. Jack was a "giver" in many ways. I was a recipient of his generosity. My love, sympathy and prayers to Ann and all of the family. May he rest in peace.

RIP ol' man; one of the toughest men I have worked with and for. I worked for Jack on his first Super's job for Tousley-Bixler, you had to love work to make it with him. Jack was honest, fair and never backed off when it came to saying his piece. He never asked you to do something he would not do himself. You knew you were ok when he cocked his head to the side, put on that half grin and starred you down with those baby blues! Jack was a good man.

We are sorry to have learned of your loss and would like you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers,
