Dear Kathy and family,
Peter and I were heart broken when we heard about Jack's passing. Peter's dad just told us today. We can remember the "family vacation" at the Jersey shore. I was just looking at a picture of Jack and Peter fishing a few days ago. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

To the Gorine Family,
I am deeply saddened to hear of Jack's passing. I have some great memories of our exploits in high school and after that I will cherish forever. Time and distance took us in different directions but I always looked forward to catching up and regret not having the chance to spend more time together. I could see how much he loved his family and friends and I feel the pain of his loss. Our love goes out to the Gorine family.
Jack was a fraternity brother of mine at Trenton State College. During that time I always remembered him as a brother that cared about everyone. He was a true brother and will be missed greatly.
To his wife and family cherish all the wonderful memories of Jack and remember that he may physically be gone but his spirit will live on in each of you forever.
May god bless you all

Dear Kathy, Alison, Kevin, and John: Jack was always such a friendly and down to earth and likable person. I admired what an active and involved dad Jack was. The whole neighborhood will miss him. Sincerely, Roger Mourad
I was so sorry to hear of Jack's passing. Please know your family is my thoughts and prayers. Karen (Gerber) Marcin (Randolph High School Class of 1972)
To the Gorine Family, I have such fond memories of growing up on Windsor Ave, where 2 homes were on the Dover side of town, I am grateful that the Gorine family was on the Randolph side. Jack was quite comical as even at a younger age. I do remember him spray painting rocks gold and saying it was gold, or fool's gold and the fun that was had in a neighborhood where bikes were ridden, kick ball was played and life was quite simple, that was 60's. Jack was a light that will continue to shine. Our sincere condolences and prayers are with you at this time. With Love, Nancy(Sappio),John,Chris & Carly Famiglietti
Kathy and Family,
It was a pleasure knowing Jack back at Trenton State College during our Fraternity days, he was a great guy. Please accept my condolences.

As colleagues of Karen's in Washington State, we never had the chance to meet Jack. But through her, in recent months, we came to know of him and to admire his qualities of strength, athleticism, optimism, and devotion to family. Please know that our hearts are with you.
Peg Houden, Tim Martin, and the Emerald Park Family
Jack, I love you very very much, and I'm sorry. Thank you for giving me a second chance at life and caring for me along the way. I will always admire the heart you had, and the man you were. There are too many times that you showed me how to be a respectable man, from teaching me how to chop fire wood, to how to care unconditional for another person. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for everything.
Kathy, Allison, John and Kevin,
We will never forget the days at Huron watching swimming and waterpolo and listening to Jack cheer on his kids. Our deepest condelences to you all. Our prayers are with you.
Fondly, Jim, Jackie, Melissa, and Jon Downing

It was my pleasure to meet Jack at Drop-in hockey in Chelsea almost two years ago. Jack was a competitor and a pleasure to play with and against. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. We will all miss him.
Louis Preston[Northville, MI.]
Kathy, Allison, John, and Kevin, I have struggled to find the words to express how sorry we are to hear of Jack's passing. I have such good memories of him and you from our days of swimming and water polo and will always remember Jack as a wonderful human being with such a great personality. One of the last times I saw Jack, he was out walking his dog. He was happy and I will hold onto that memory of him. We wish you peace and comfort during this very difficult time.
Carolyn, Larry, Alina, and Tyler Haack
I first met Jack when he was with the Bureau of Prisons and then worked with him, when he became a U.S. Probation Officer. He left me with some great memories, when I retired in 2004. I'm still smiling Jack. God bless you.
Jack's kindness, generosity and humor will be greatly missed. I will always have fond memories of our golf games, fishing and just doing whatever during our visits together.
We were lucky to have Jack in our lives.
To Kathy and Family, My heart goes out to you and your family. The few times I met Jack I new how much he loved you and your children. Even though we live states apart. You will always be in my heart, as you have been since the 6th grade. Love Wendy Furney
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Gorine family during this time. The Huron Swimming and Diving family will miss him a great deal.
Eric and Andrea Stanczyk
Dear Kathy, Allison, John, Kevin and the rest of the Gorine family, please accept my condolences. Jack always brought fun and laughter into our hockey world and neighborhood. I will miss our fun commuting rides. His spirit will shine bright forever. I will miss him dearly.
It has been a while since our kids were at Huron together, and I have a great appreciation of how you both touched our lives. I am very sorry for Jack's passing and want to offer my deepest sympathy to you and your family.
Here are just a few of the things that I will remember about Jack:
His unabashed exuberance on his wedding day
His pride in his kids
His wry smile
His wicked sense of humor
I have such fond memories of the many occasions we spent in Sophie Kruz's back yard on Broadway, which is where I first met Jack. Such a great guy. Years later I had the pleasure of getting to know John Jr. when he was dating Theresa. He reminded me of Jack in so many ways and it always gave me a good feeling. Jack was such a wonderful and dedicated father. My deepest condolences to your family.
Jack was a "ray of sunshine" whether heading for hockey or doing yard work. His children absorbed his love of life and they will carry on his legacy. We send our condolences to Cathy, Allison, John, and Kevin and to Jack's mother, sister, and other relatives.
Marlene and Don Salberg
Kathy and family, I am so sad to hear of Jacks passing. Although it was a while ago we worked together, he sure was great guy. My prayers are with you.
I am sorry to hear of Jack's passing. I met him through my brother Mike, played some baseball, golf, and even ran a little; Great wit and personality and a pleasure to have known. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to his family,

To: Mrs. Gorine & Family,
To know Jack was to love Jack. I was impressed with his dedication to his family, his fellowman and his professionalism when he applied for a position as a United States Probation Officer (USPO), and it was a combination of all of these variables that allowed me to hire him as a USPO. We were also easy friends as we both earned M.S.W.s from the U of Mich. Jack's great dedication to his work benefitted the clients that he encountered and the United States District Court system.
We all loved JACK, but God loved him more.
- Rev. Dr. Ernest L. Harris, former Deputy Chief U.S. Probation Officer
>> Gone But Not Forgotten
It was my great privilege, on occasion, to join Jack and other neighborhood hackers on the golf course. My last round in 2012 was with Jack, Gene Rye, and Dave Hibbs. Late October (Nov?), sunny but VERY cold. It was Gene's treat, but the real treat was enjoying yet another round with Jack. As always, his presence, his love of the game (if not always HIS game) and his ever-present humor kept us warm in the chill. A unique and special man...
Our deepest sympathies.
We coached each other's boys in soccer, baseball, and basketball from elementary school through middle school. With all the practices and games, we saw each other almost every day. We shared many great times together. Life is special and dear. We are glad Jack was part of ours.
Jack Gorine was a great wit. Fun to be around. A great storyteller. Bruce and I are so sad to hear of his illness and passing and hope you find peace and comfort in knowing he was so loved and respected.
We've lost a ray of sunshine in our lives. You were admired and loved, and will live in our hearts forever. Joe, Sue, Madeleine, Sophie, and Olivia.
Gorine Family - We are so saddened to hear about Jack. Please know that the Heaton Family is thinking of you. I have especially fond memories of the hours spent coaching the boys on the basketball court with Jack and a couple of seasons when we were virtually unbeatable. He was a great person to be around. Chris Heaton
To the Gorine Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Jack's passing. We were fraternity brothers at Trenton State College, where we became friends. Jack touched many hearts and was an inspiration to many. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God knows we lost another good one. God bless us all!!! BNE
Patty and family, so sorry for the loss of your brother. May your many years of fond memories help sustain you through this difficult time. God bless your family and be safe in your travels. With deepest sympathy. Pat & Diane McGinness (Riegelsville PA)
I was doubly lucky to have been a Randolph buddy of Jack's and then later, a Trenton State College fraternity brother. Jackson had a uniquely wry wit and shot from the hip but always in a kidding and kindly fashion. I'm glad we kept in touch a bit and wish geographical distance didn't preclude us from getting together more often. Jack showed a tremendous amount of courage throughout this ordeal and focused his concerns on
the family he loved so much and was so proud of. Whenever I think of Jack he will be there with that grin and a great story for me. Deepest sympathies to Jack's family and to his many friends.
Rest in peace brother,
I had the double pleasure and privilege of having Jack as a Randolph buddy and then later as a fraternity brother at Trenton State. A great wit, Jackson shot from the hip but always in a kindly fashion.I'm glad we kept in touch a bit even though distance precluded getting together often. Jack showed incredible courage throughout this ordeal and his concern was for the family that he was so proud of and loved so much. Our memories of this super guy will help sustain us all. Rest in peace friend and brother.
To Kevin and the Gorine Family,
I am very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sorrowful time.
Dear Mrs. Gorine,
I am very sorry to hear of the death of Jack. He was always good for a laugh when he came to do a site visit. Please know that you and your family will continue in our prayers.

I'm so sorry for your tragic loss. I've known Jack since roughly 1974 and was both a fraturnity brother with Jack as well as a housemate while at Trenton State College. It was great to see Jack every fall for our annual golf trip to Martha's Vinyard and more recently the Jersey Shore. Jack was a terriffic guy and great friend. I will miss him very much. Please accept my sympathies!
My sincere condolences to the Gorine family. I played a lot of hockey with Jack and quite a few rounds of golf. He always entertained us in the locker room, in the car to and from an event, and at the local pub. He loved his family dearly, and talked of them often. I will truly miss my good friend and neighbor Jack.
I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. Please extend my sympathies to your Mom anthe rest of your family. Take Care.

My sincere condolences to the Gorine Family. I played hockey with Jack for many years; he was great guy and a good friend. I will miss him very much.
At a Xmas party a long time ago someone mentioned fishing. Jack was standing across the room and I had heard through Rosie via Kathy that he had recently caught a large fish. I yelled, "Jack, show this guy the fish you caught!" Sure enough, he pulled the picture of his fish out of his pocket. I knew I could rely on him to be ready to tell a story. We will miss your wit and good humor.
Kathy, Allison, John G., Kevin: Many, many fond memories and grateful thoughts of Jack. His influence on our family was so significant during the good times and the difficult times. No matter what, Jack always had a smile to share or a great comment to bring me back to reality. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Jack was well loved by the Durski/DiSante family. Love to you all. Anne DiSante, John Durski, Alex Durski

My deepest condolences to your family.
Jack was a great man. He had an impact on everyone that knew him. Having the opportunity to coach his kids was an honor and a privilege. His support of the aquatics community at Huron was unwavering. He will be sorely missed by all.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My sympathies to the Gorine Family. Although I do not know you, I knew Jack from the Golden Masters Hockey League. He was a great competitor and an excellent teammate, but foremost just a plain good guy. I will miss him, as will many of those who knew him on the ice. Rest in peace, Jack.
