Jack was a great friend to many in the amateur radio world. He was an active leader in the Radio Amateur Club of Knoxville for many years, and his passing leaves a void among local ham radio operators. He was the kind of man that all of us admired and aspired to be like as hams.

73 Jack, rest in peace.
