From Jack’s son Bill:
I am so grateful that I was able to spend this past week with my father. We had some really meaningful conversations that I will take with me for the rest of my life. For those of you who knew Jack you know he couldn't go too long without cracking a joke just to make you smile. My father was the strongest and hardest working man I have ever known. He lived a pretty extraordinary life. He had his ups and his downs but he never stayed down.... my old man always got up and kept swinging even at the end. You will be missed but never forgotten. I am a better man because I had the privilege of being your son. Rest easy old man. I love you and will see you again.
