Jack was truly one of the nicest and most humble people that I ever met. I met Jack when he and the late Fred Imhoff were leading the Cub Scouts in the Tri Towns and my son Mike was in their troop. He was a wonderful person, and the world could uses more people like Jack.
God Bless you Jack
My sincerest condolences to his family.
