Kristina - On the first anniversary of your father's death you are in my thoughts and prayers. I have lit a candle today to honor his memory and how dear you were to each other.
Just a note to let you know I am thinking of you and Jack today. I am grateful that I got to meet Jack, as well as your mother, Helen. I know how much they both loved you. I saw their love for you in their eyes and heard their love for you in their voices. May their presence in your heart bring you comfort and peace.
Jack was simply a super guy, great sense of humor and a terrific NY Giants fan. He was a guys guy and served the USA with great honor in Korea. He was a mentor while I was a very green AE at WNYT. I once asked him for advise and he said come see me weekly. First week he said don't believe a single word Karl Davis the LSM tells you. Second week he told me don't tell Karl anything I told you. third week I asked whats next, he said "kid, time to figure it out on your own". Not sure I ever did but I did learn a lot from Jack and will miss him always. God bless you Jack and your beloved NY Giants and may you and Karl enjoy your sales meetings in heaven! He's probably say.."Jack your late again!"
Dear Rie and family:
My deepest sympathy. Jack was a special and is remembered fondly by my daughter, Lori, my grandson, Nathan, and myself.
Sincerely, Betty Foss

To Jack's Family,
Please accept my sincere condolences on Jack's passing. He was a great competitor when I sold at WRGB. Jack was one of the good guys.....always happy and smiling. He will certainly be missed.
Lori, Sharon, Kathy, Rhea..
I'm so sorry that Jack's gone. He was always fun to be around, and I never walked away feeling like he didn't care. And he never left anyone without a smile. When I came back to visit, he always brought me up to speed on the family, and though I hardly need to say it, he was SO proud of each and every one of you. Of everything in his rich, full life, you were his treasures. I'm glad you have a photo of him smiling, because that was Jack - always with a big grin. Though I cannot be there, please know my heart breaks with yours, and you have my deepest condolences.
Peace to your family. I have so many fond memories of Jack when I was a budding account executive at WNYT. He was a great mentor.
Rie --what can I say,he was a special guy and a heck of a soldier.There are many who owe their lives to Jack who would have been buried in Korea if not for Jack,I am one of those guys

Rie,Cathy,Sharon,Lori,Krissy....I am very sorry to hear about Jack's passing. He meant a great deal to me, as you all know. Coming back to New York from Illinois in 1987 with Becky, Roberta, and Alex, Rie and Jack were there for us, since most of our family was out of the area by then. The years I worked for Jack and Rie on the houses and grounds in North Chatham were some of the bestt memories that I have...I will miss his laugh and a smile...My sympathies and love to you all...You all mean a great deal to me...my "other family..."
Kris, I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much you loved your Dad. I had the honor and pleasure of meeting Jack on one of his many visits to see you when you lived in Maryland. I know it meant a lot when Jack came to support you when your mother passed away. You both always had such a great time together when he visited you in Colorado that he often extended his stay. I will always remember Jack's sense of humor and his love for you. Peace be with you.
So sorry for your loss Rie. God Bless!
Dear Rie and family, our thoughts and prayers are with you. We remember the great times in Mohawk, and your stay at our Putnam Manor House B&B for one of the class reunions. We all enjoyed having a great time. Jack was a very kind gentlemen. Darwin and Patty Putnam
dear rie, im so sorry to read that jack has died. i fondly remember a few of our gab sessions back in the late ninties. i also remember that when you and i worked together at the state you had an endearing nickname for him during our work day. these special memories still bring a smile to my face on such a sad time. my condolences to you and your family, rie.
Rie and family, I am so sorry to hear of Jack's passing. Please accept my condolences. He was a great guy. Always kind, respectful, helpful and funny. I replaced Jack at WNYT when he left. I had big shoes to fill. He was a good mentor to me. He will be missed.
Krissy, I remember you from the North Chatham days hanging out with Davey and Scotty. I did notice my error in mentioning you and tried to correct it as soon as I noticed. I am deeply sorry for not including you in the original post, it's been a while since that time. I know you cared deeply for you dad and feel for you in this time of great loss. God Bless all the Lees
I love you and will miss you very much. I hope you and David are having a joyful reunion.
Love from your daughter,
My name is Kristina Lee Dalton and I am Jack's daughter from his first marriage. Unfortunately, I was not notified of his death on Monday morning until last night. I loved my father very much. I feel too distraught to write much more right now.
My sincere sympathy to you Rie and family. I had the pleasure to work with Jack at WNYT and he was a true friend and wonderful person who would help anyone. He brought many smiles to my face and a Legend and inspiraton to all who knew him.
My condolences on your loss. I was one of Jack's clients early in my career and he demonstrated how a real gentleman handled the sales business. I had the pleasure of attending his retirement party and have thought of him often since. He will be missed.
Jack will forever bring a smile to us all!
So many fun and fond memories of our days at WNYT!
My thoughts and prayers are with you, Rie and the girls.
Warmly ~ Susan Stratton

Rie and Family:
We are so sorry to hear of Jack's passing. We will always remember the fun times we had together, especially the trip to California to see the Giants play, and winning the Superbowl against the Bills. Jack was such a nice man and friend. May God bless you all.
