My name is Dena Miller.
My family wishes to send you our condolences on Jack's passing.

Myself, my children & grandchildren held a weekly Bible study at his last place of residence. Jack attended faithfully each week.

He would sing along with my little grandson as he sang "Jesus Loves Me". He always had a smile on his face when the children came. He always made sure to say "hello" when we arrived & "goodbye" to us when we left.

He will be missed by us all.

I first met Jack in the 70s when he was my high school resource officer. in 1989, he hired me and promoted me 10 years later.
He was a wonderful boss who was always helpful, taught me a lot and always had my back.
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Jan and the family.

Jack was a friend and mentor to me when I became a Commander. We would talk about the job but he cared about you as a person too.
My prayers to Jan and his kids. God Bless.

I am sorry to hear of Jacks passing, and am sad for the loss for Jan and his family. I had the pleasure of knowing Jack for 20+ years when we worked together at the Elk Grove Police Dept. Jack and I were both promoted around the same time and we worked closely from that point on. My fondest memories of Jack will always be the spirited discussions we had during command staff meetings , frequently disagreeing, but always respectful of each others perspectives. Jack was always a class act and a true gentleman, rest well my friend.

Jan and family,
So sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. When he was hired, Ken was his FTO and we all easily became friends.
When you and I spoke last, we both took comfort from our faith. May the faith that got you through the tough times, be with you now. Hold on to the positive memories of the life you shared together.
