Carolyn, I’m sorry you lost Jack. He was a good, kind man. A friend to many of us at MoPub and Aquila. I hope you are doing well, my friend Carolyn. I am in Ireland on vacation and cannot make it to his visitation. Please know I will say a special prayer for him at the next ancient church I visit today!

Carolyn please accept my condolences for your loss Jack always had a smile of his face at work. I know your family will miss him deeply. Blessings of comfort and peace

Carolyn, thinking about you and your family. I was very sorry to hear about Jack. You all are in my prayers.

Carolyn, I am so sorry for your loss Jack was a kind man who “showed me the ropes” on playing softball in the early MoPub years (early 80’s). A great friend and co-worker, he will be sorely missed! I wish I could be there for his celebration of life, but am in Chicago visiting my son and granddaughters.

Carolyn and family, Pam and I are very sorry to hear about Jack. I enjoyed working with Jack as well as playing softball together.
