I first met Jack at Elkhart Christian Academy. I remember how large and strong his hand was upon shaking it. Jack was a man's man and humble. My personal dealing with Jack showed me Jack was one of the very most honorable men I have ever met in my life.

I haven't seen Jack since we graduated MHS together back in 1981
He was a terrific basketball player, and he always had a smile and a positive outlook.
My heart goes out to his family
