I am sad to hear of Jack's passing. He and I did not meet in person, but we corresponded and talked on the phone extensively about chorus frogs for years. His 1975 paper on reproductive character displacement in chorus frogs inspired my whole research program. Jack was always so generous in offering advice to a young grad student, and it was so fun getting excited about research with him. He spent a lot of time digging through decades old data sets and bringing them to light so we could work on publishing them together (there is another one coming!). I am grateful that he passed along his extensive fieldnotes and acoustic data along to me before his death. I will do my utmost to give his work the attention it deserves. I was so excited to see that it meant enough to him that the frog species we named after him made it into his obituary (Pseudacris fouquettei). Neat. I am sad to lose a friend. Thanks for all you did for me Jack. My prayers are with you and your family. --Emily Moriarty Lemmon, Florida State University
It is October 16 and I'm just hearing about Jack's death. Besides guiding me through a Masters Degree, he and I spent many nights doing frog research in South America and for years all over the SE US. He was the best companion for field research I ever had. Very sorry this is so late. I have a whole notebook about our travels in SA.
Mari- I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Beth
I am sorry to hear of the passing of Jack. After spending 28 yrs with Jack as a colleague at ASU, I knew Jack as a very kind and generous person, and great colleague. Stan Faeth
