It was a priviledge and a pleasure to work at BGE under the leadership of Jack for many years. He was a man of extreme intelligence and integrity and was always professional, respectful, and encouraging. I was constantly amazed at how he remembered everyone's name. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and my sincere sympathies to his family. John Schlee
