    Jack was always special to me and I enjoyed the friendship we shared. My heart goes out to Dee, Patty, and John and know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Jack touched many student lives and was respected by those he taught and coached. He was in a unique place to make a difference to a lot of young people and was a blessing to them. He will be missed in this world.
