I played football under Jack at Groton in 1955 and remember him clearly, with admiration and affection. He was utterly honest, utterly dedicated, utterly fair, and a real role model for me, both as a coach and as a friend. I did not know of his passing until today, and I send deep condolences to Diana and the children, from many years ago.

As mentioned so many ways, Jack was able to maximize each individual student athlete's performance through direct feed back and encouragement. His legacy continues in all the hearts he touched. RIP

Teaching and coaching without ego or prejudice is an art. He put everything he had into our football teams and it only made us better. He will be missed.

Coach Davison as been my hero for over 50 years. He was my football coach for three years in the late 50's, and always inspired our teams to perform better than we thought possible. He drove us to perform at our very best -- because he knew what it would mean to us if we gave it our all. Although he was a demanding coach, we knew how much he cared for us. Our team was able to honor him in 2010 at our 50th reunion, and, typically, he was somewhat embarrassed by all the attention. He was a true inspiration, role model, and beloved friend. Save a place for me on your team in heaven!

I had the pleasure of having Coach Davison as both my coach and teacher. He was truly inspirational and was such a positive influence on so many of us. Those of us who played for him learned to give all we had and a little bit more. Those who were taught by him were inspired by the insights that he brought to us in some many different ways. He was gruff and demanding but anyone who knew him well knew that this was just his way of getting the most out of you. He will be missed by all knew him and perhaps by some who never met him - my own children know stories of Coach Davison and some of his favorite sayings.

For each of us, dying is not life's greatest tragedy. Rather it's living without knowing and giving our greatest gift. Meaning, that unique combination of talents, temperment and character in each of us that makes us different. Perhaps that giving is the most important reason we are put on this earth at all. Jack Davidson leaves us having given 100% of himself and the unique talents and gifts God endowed him with. These letters suggest that we all benefitted in some way from his unselfish and enthusiastic triumph of the human spirit. I wouldn't miss him because if I close my eyes and think about him, I can still feel him standing in front of me.

Jack is an inspiration to humanity. He is the living and shining definition of what every man, young and old alike should strive to become....loving, passionate, strong, sensitive, honest, respectful, thoughtful ...the list goes on.

Jack is walking with angels...though he always acted like he was among them anyways...now he actually gets to see them and touch them with his hands and they can thank him face to face for the work that he did as he walked on this earth...then they will deliver him to the God that he loved so much and taught us so much about...and he will behold the glory of Him who he served so faithfully.

I already miss him though I hadn't seen him in years and I look forward to seeing him again when he'll put his hand on my shoulder, look me in the eye and say " ya see? I knew you could do it...it's all about the effort...it's all about confidence and believing that you can."

I ask that our Father in Heaven will comfort his family and the hearts of the thousands that he touched with his spirit.
