Jack was such an influential figure in my life, although I’m not sure he knew it. He helped me to understand the value of transparency in communication. Jack was never afraid to speak his mind no matter the consequences. His unabashed approach to life was something I always admired and respected. He had a sense of humor that was unmatched. He was witty and raw and commanded attention. He was undoubtedly “one of a kind.” I will forever miss his company. Rest In Peace my friend.

I have so many good memories with Jack. He taught me many life lessons that I will carry with me and pass on to my boys. I think one thing that he really instilled in me was to “be here now” meaning to be present in life’s moments and to not dwell on the past or worry about the future. Another would be to “stop making mountains out of molehills”. I can’t tell you how many of our conversations revolved around one of these sayings. I’ll take our conservations with me. Rest In Peace Jack, I love you. Love, -L
