Jack was a devoted and loving father to his daughter, Keara and he enjoyed many hours together on the golf course and enjoying a Tito’s or two, which helped to contribute to his nickname, Vodka Jack! His greatest joy was his daughter! He was a fantastic father!! Jack was an excellent chef and used his culinary skills at many family holiday dinners.

    I extend my prayers and sincere sympathy to all 🙏! I am devastated to hear of Jack’s passing. I will keep the fond memories close – hoisting coolers on the garage roof of college apartment, flipping golf carts at South Park, intense games of quarters and thumper, and loving Jack’s sarcastic comments.
