  1. I just learned of Jack’s passing! It’s left me with an empty space that is unpleasant. He and I have spent time together . . . I’ll miss that. We laughed, played music together, rode in cars which he purchased AND built. He’s made me laugh and scarred me almost to death!!! I know of kindnesses which he extended to people and that speaks volumes to me. He was THAT guy. There have been many losses in my life – this is one of the biggest. I pray that all of you – who are family and friends, heal quickly and in healthy ways. I will always remember my friend, Jack . . .

  2. Rest in peace Jack, I have known Jack for many years. We shared interest in cars and motorcycles. I have bought both from him. Jack was an interesting guy, he was talented in many areas. Jack was an achiever and clever. To his family please accept my sincere condolences.
