I remember watching Jack when I was a teenager. Much later in life I had the honor of being his mail carrier in Odessa. He was as nice a person as he was a great wrestler. He and his wife were great customers. I also delivered mail to his brother, Jerry. My belated sympathies go to the Brisco families.

Just a great American. Has left here and looking down waiting in heaven on his family and fans with Jesus.

Brisco was the greatest wrestler of his generation in Oklahoma. He was 3-time state champion at heavyweight in high school, and never lost a match. I saw him wrestle againt Dave Adams of Will Rogers HS--a great grappler himself, and bigger than Brisco. We on the Rogers team were amazed at Brisco'S phenomenal speed and strength. He was as quick as a 125 pounder. He was simply unbeatable. That was in 1959. I never took professional wrestling seriously. He was the first world champion since...

I remember in 1975 jack brisco vs terry funk for the nwa title terry won as a young kid that was cool in miami beach conference center

I CAN REMEMBER JACK WHEN HE WRESTLED IN LINCOLN,NE AND ALSO IN OMAHA NE

I remember Jack Brisco wrestling Dory Funk, Jr. in Greensboro, N.C. at the Greensboro Colesium. I was about 14 years old. My dad and I always thought he was the greatest wrestler. Many precious memories. May God bless and comfort your family. Steve Haynes, Danville, Va.

Remembering your great ring battles with another wrestling legend Jose Lothario at Memorial Coliseum... True classics...RIP Jack and thanks for the memories.
