I worked with Jack for over 10 yrs. We were friends from the start. Fred Rux had become a dear friend of mine since the beginning and we occasionally did breakfast before work on friday at the restaurant on the corner of Blackhawk and 11th. We would see Jack coming in off the road some of those mornings and he would join us. He would have a bloody mary many times for breakfast and tell jokes and laugh with us. He loved conversation and was always joking around. We just had the discussion in which my 49ers Robbie Gould (ex-Bear) just kicked 5 field goals to beat Chicago. This is how I remember Jack. May God bless you all. RIP Jack
