Jack was my cousin, but most of all my friend. We lived far apart for many years but I was privileged to get to know him and develop a friendship in recent years after he moved to our neighboring state of South Carolina. You will never find a more humble, caring family-oriented person than Jack. I feel a deep loss, but will always have warm thoughts of him coming to family events and going to ballgames together. The world was a better place for Jack having been part of it. God bless you Jack. We will miss you until we meet again.

Met Jack at Gold's Gym when I moved from Iowa to South Carolina in 2009, I enjoyed our lively political debates over the past several years. Jack was a very friendly person who went out of his way to say hi to a stranger who later became his friend . May you rest in peace.
