Jack's family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers. I did not know Jack very long, but in the short time I knew him he was generous, kind, and a delightful person with whom to spend time. He was also deeply knowledgeable and endlessly interesting. I had looked forward to more time getting to know him better and his loss comes as a shock. I am sure I speak for many when I say that he will be greatly missed and that his memory will be honored.

Our sincere sympathies to the family and close friends of Jack. We knew him from when we went to grade school and high school in Wisconsin. It was a very special friendship that we continued for many years in Portland.
