I heard this morning of Jack's death from his old friend and my uncle, Seymour Mednick. My dad, Gil Parkin, was Jack's accountant for many years until his death in 2007. Jack and Seymour were not only my dad's clients but his friends. I remember seeing Jack on many occasions at Seymour's studio in Philadelphia and my dad and mom's house. During high school and college I assisted my dad with his bookkeeping work and was fortunate to have lunched with Jack, Seymour and Gil many times....always the best part of the day for me. I was fortunate to not only know Jack but to see many of his paintings, drawings and busts. In fact, two paintings and one drawing hang in my wife's and my apartment in Philadelphia. They are on loan from Seymour, but I'm afraid for not much longer. I did speak to Jack a few times after my father's death; initially to recommend an accountant to finish his tax work and a couple of times after that. Since the accountant was in the suburbs of Philadelphia, it was easier for Jack to have future work done closer to home but he sent a very poignant letter to the accountant (a friend of mine)thanking him for finishing the work my father had started for that tax year but also talking about his relationship with my dad. I have the letter which is a most cherished memento. My sincere and deepest sympathies on his passing. I will remember him fondly and hope to convince Seymour to allow us to enjoy Jack's paintings for as long as possible. Regards.

Mindy and Lisa, I am so saddened by your dad's death. He and your mom were so important to me during the Powelton days and I had been thinking about him a lot since your mom's death.Could you please re-send me your e-mail about his death. It disappeared from my computer and I would like to send it on to Alex as well as come up for the service. Thanks, Betty Tilley

I was so saddened upon learning of Jack's death. I worked with him for several years photographing his artwork. Both he and Jackie would visit my studio and share some smiles with my babies who were often at studio with me. My heart goes out to Mindy and her family in this sad time. Peace to Jack and Jackie - I will miss you both!

I am saddened with this news...I will miss Jack. He was a longtime friend and fellow DeltaPhi at Kenyon. I enjoyed our luncheons with Jackie and my wife Jean, when we lived in Needham.

I would like to hear from Jack's daughters for further information...will there be a service?

I have been trying to reach Jack in the past two months, sadly, to no avail.
