How sad it is for me to learn just now that this wonderful, talented man lived here. And I've been in this area 8 years now. Had I known, I would have let Mr. Davis know what an appreciation I had for his gifts.
I can't begin to remember all the TV Guide covers containing his work I held in my hands. May God provide abundant comfort to Mr. Davis' family.

My heartfelt sympathy is extended to the Davis family. I enjoyed Mad. I couldn't wait to get off from school and seek solitude in my room. Mad was funny and the overall pics were amazing. Thanks Mr. Davis! You will be missed.

Family and Friends of Jack,

I read and had a subscription to Mad in its early comic book form during my grade school years in Pittsburgh, and very much enjoyed Jack's drawing of characters. He, Bill Elder, and Wallace Wood, as I recall (I'm now 74), were the three mainstay artists in Mad back then, and I and my friends often marvelled at their capacities of illustration often of other well-known comic book characters. In my adult years as a professor in Georgia, I once saw an illustration that had Jack's recognizable signature and I phoned the number on the publication -- and lo! Jack himself answered and identified himself to me. I gushed my admiration of his work with Mad that I avidly read each month in my early youth. It was one of my life's thrills -- minor, yes, but still a thrill. You all should be aware already of what pleasure his life's work gave to Mad's readers like me. Thanks for a dedicated artist, a cultural treasure for me and likely thousands of others.

I was saddened to hear of his passing. I am an old friend of Katie's from UGA days. I have always cherished my UGA memorabilia with Jack Davis artwork. Best wishes to the entire Davis family.

Dear Family:
Jack was a wonderful part of the UGA scene. His posters ,cartoons and other illustrations were an inspiration to GA people through out the year. Also those of us who grew up in the 60's, we enjoyed his input in Mad Magazine. His work made us laugh and forget about our day to day tribulations. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers in the coming days!

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
