    Jacqueline and family, I share in your grief in the passing of Jack. He was a good person who loved his family dearly. He was the perfect husband for my sister Nancy and was good to our family. I have many good memories of Jack that I will always cherish. He will be missed. My prayer is that God will provide you much comfort and peace at this time. Love, Jesse

    I will miss uncle Jack. Whenever I rode in the car with him he would see different buildings and it would remind him of a story about him and Aunt Nancy. He always had a good story and I could listen to him for hours.

    Jack and I went to school together for 12 years. He was a true friend always and will be missed. He loved to tease but had a heart of gold. If ever I were to need something, he is one I could count on.
