Jack Steinberg, the quintessential historian and civic leader, gave so much to the CSRA Community throughout his life and I know he would be proud of the legacy that he has left with the progress of the Augusta Jewish Museum. His dream of saving the oldest standing synagogue in Georgia, where he had his Bar Mitzvah as I understand, has happened with the opening of Phase One in early 2021. Thank you Jack for your aspirations and dreams of preserving the CSRA Jewish Heritage and creating the Augusta Jewish Museum. Your memory is a blessing.

I am Praying for his family. I have fond memories of Jack and Sue from my days working the summer with my Dad, Johnny Becton, at Burke Mtg. Company. He would always talk to me about growing up. My Dad passed away June 24th. He always thought the world of Mr. Steinberg.

Tom and I are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Jack Steinberg. Very few people in my life that I had as much respect for. He was my accountant for over 25 years. He was so much more than my accountant, he was my friend, a mentor, and often times when life’s difficulties would arise , my counselor, encourager and advisor. I am forever grateful to have known Jack and had such an amazing, caring and smart man in my life! This world has said goodbye to one of the really good ones. Not likely anyone on this earth will ever know all the good he did because that was Jack. Our deepest condolences to all his family and friends! He will be missed! Remarkable, remarkable man!! Rest In Peace my friend! Love you!! 😢💔Bren DeVaney , Savannah River Art Glass, and Tom James, ICCLLC.
