The world just got a little smaller and a little lonlier. Jack's regularly refreshing charm made him one of life's characters you would always gladly call friend.

I know everyone around Jack will miss him. He was a stand-up guy and a good friend. Not many people with his level of professionalism and dependability these days. I wish I would have had the chance to know him longer. His family is in my prayers.
