I didn't know Jack personally but I knew of him through his wife Betty who was in my dance and Essentrics classes. I know he loved music and played a mean trumpet. I know he fought a valiant battle against his
cancer and I'm am saddened that he lost that battle. My thoughts and prayers are with Betty and the entire family during this difficult time. Blessings, Kathy Zachman
