Lynn and Lee,
I am so very sorry to learn about Jack. I worked directly with Jack back in the early days and was able to see what a wonderful family man he was. I know you will miss him so much.

We are so saddened by Jack's death. We got to know Jack and Lynn through Lee, who became a close friend of our son, Rem, when Lee was very young. Lee was in Rem and Beth's wedding, and we have stayed in touch with Jack, Lynn, and Lee for many years. They are a wonderful family, especially now with Seoyoon and Ara Lynn. Jack will be greatly missed.

I went to high school with Jacky as he was called . He was so cute and friendly. I think I had a little crush on him.
So very sorry for your loss. May your memories give you peace. Prayers for your family.
