John "Jack" Edward Krings

Jack will be missed and long-remembered by all of his colleagues and friends. Our world of defense test resources and operational testing will suffer from his absence. It was a great privilege to know him. He was a great inspiration to me over the last 25 years of his service to the Department of Defense. Fair well to my friend.

I knew Jack for 50 years. I never met anyone who knew Jack that didn't love him. He was a man's man and a fighter pilot's pilot. He did it all. If you had a serious conversation on any subject, Jack would cut to the core issues and give a concise logical answer. He was the voice of reason, and one of the best who ever worked in the five sided building. Nadine and I cherish our times spent with Jack and Barbara and our hearts go out to her at this sad time. We have lost a national treasure!
