I remember Uncle Jack most from his Long Island days, when he arranged for Marty to teach Louis, Joseph and Kathleen Raffloer, children of Louis Raffloer, Jr and me, to ice skate.

we barely kept in touch when Jack moved to Colorado: he kept us apprised of his work with an annual phone call or Christmas card.
He chose to love and live and work in one of the most beautiful settings in the U.S.
I'm happy to have known him.

Jack - you took such good care of me. I will always remember you so fondly and be ever so grateful for all you taught me about skating but most of all about life. Kim Wheeland

Great Uncle Jack was a wonderful story teller, as only someone who has lived such a rich life can be. He shared with his grand-niece and grand-nephew stories about the Raffloer family and about his life in skating, particularly his travels abroad. His sister Ida, my children's grandmother, had the same sweet smile that Jack had, and the same warm heart. My children were lucky to be related to both of them. Jack will be missed but always remembered -- and smiling in those memories.

Jack was a kind and gentle person. He had a way of making each and every one of us feel special. I have many great memories of Jack from my days at the Broadmoor. Jack coached my husband, Mark, and his sister, Melissa, for many years and he always made a point of keeping in touch with them throughout the years. A very special person indeed! We will all miss you Jack! May you rest in peace.

Dearest Jack, you showed respect for all, shared your love for skating with each of your students - and I was lucky to be one of those skaters, and your kindness was unmatched. Thank you for being my coach and mentor. You are already missed. I too will miss our long conversations, always so filled with news of the present and the past. XOXOXO

Jack, I will miss you and our many memories as neighbors for 33 years. When I left Canonwood I I did not realize I would not see you again. For that I have great regret but know you are with the family you love and many friends.Say hi to Marty

Besides being our childrens, Mark and Melissa's coach, he was Orlando's and my most loyal friend for some 45 years. We will miss our many lengthy talks on the phone. Jack, may God Bless You with all our love, and always in our prayers. The Militano Family
