Jack worked for T.W.A. for 37 years, most of them as a lead aircraft mechanic. He loved to travel and saw so much of our world. He loved to ski (Colorado was his favorite and he also skied in Europe). He biked, ran a Marathon, could build anything, enjoyed gardening and yard work. He loved his Pittsburgh Steelers, NASCAR (Tony Stewart was his favorite driver) and Charity Newsies, where he was a lifetime member. He was also a member of St. Matthews Catholic Church and volunteered at many festivals. He thoroughly enjoyed learning of his Slovenian heritage at the S.N.P.J. Campsite where he had been a member for many years. Jack believed in "work comes first, then play," so he worked hard and played even harder.
