I knew of Greg as a smart, honorable and decent businessman.
I had lunch with him in Manhattan a few weeks ago
He always was humble and kind in a world that often prizes ruthlessness and arrogance.
May he now walk with the Lord on the final journey to heaven that we pray we all take when our eyes close for the last time.
God bless and Godspeed Greg

Greg,
When I think of you, I will remember the unmeasurable pride and love you have for your sons.
Thank you for teaching me to ski on a powder day when you wanted to be anywhere but the Cub Carpet, for giving me the love of hiking (against my initial lack of enthusiasm), and most importantly, for showing me how to “let go of the outcome”.
You will be missed.
Godspeed.

A text from Greg last fall. He got so much joy from his vegetable gardening. Words cannot express how much he will be missed.

Greg Jester made a huge difference in the world he touched, and that difference will continue to blossom through the lives of those he influenced most, the ones he loved and called sons.

We will all miss him terribly, but we must believe we will continue to see him everyday in so many ways, until we are together again in the Kingdom.

So, I offer this as a prayer for all of us, that we cherish every moment of every life we encounter, for God's glory, and we help each other move on when moving is out of the question.

Family football will never be the same without you Pal, but I promise to carry on and play with the zest and intensity that you always did (even though I can’t catch)! We love you!! Lady, John, Nick and Elizabeth ❤️

A great guy, an Irregulo skier who will be with us every Powder day, Mt Washington - Tuckerman’s hike, Magic Mt days, Stratton in ice or snow and Alaska trips to send great photos. He is always with us, skiing, of coarse at Jesters’s fast pace. Your friends always Jim Wachala and all the Irregulo Crew.
