Although I had not seen Jack for sometime , when we saw each other, the connection was still there. He was a very positive person in my life.
As a young man, Jack helped me both financially & mentoring. At the time you don’t even realize the total effect on your life.
We should all strive to emulate Jack.
We will miss him!
