Mr. Segada was a lovely man and an amazing father. Warm and grounding.
Very much like my own father, my own Jack. I only had the privilege of meeting him a few times, but his smile was so familiar, that I felt instantly welcome . His smile lives on in his daughter, as does his warmth and humor.
My son Sam Is on the autism spectrum and one of his early obsessions were the talking m&m’s, he memorized the commercials and collected the merchandise. He was so excited that I knew someone who worked with the m&m’s! We will always treasure the m&m’s bank that Jack and Athena gave him!
Athena, I’m so very sorry...I can only imagine your anguish, loosing your “anchor, your true north.”..

I'm very sorry and saddened to hear that Jack has passed on. In the time I got to know him while giving him Holy Communion I could tell that he was a faith-filled believer and an all-around nice person. I'll miss him. May he rest in the peace of Christ!
