Not sure what to say?

Jack, you were a great and loyal friend and will be sorely missed. I remember our years at Illinois, trips to Pinckneyville,golf games with the boys and visits with you and Linda. It was a real honor knowing you.
Bob Reitsch

Theta Rho ISU sigma chi '97-'01. I had the honor of sitting down with you for discussion several times over those years. You were a great man Jack. Many things you told me about success and true leadership in the face of adversity still stick with me today. Thank you for truly caring about molding young lives in need of direction. You will always be remembered. In Hoc, Signo Vinces.

In my memory, Jack will always be
the symbol of a person who truly found himself and the road he wished to travel by his experience in the Marines and Sigma Chi. Brotherhood really does have a profound effect...and Jack lived a life that expressed it. Well done.
Don Kane, class of '56.

Jack, I didn't know you long but I respected you greatly and will most certainly miss you, Semper Fidelis my Marine brother and friend.

Jack you will be missed terribly by all of the people who's lives you touched with your humor, your wisdom, your vision of what was ahead if one just believed in themselves. You had a remarkable way of building up a broken spirit. You will be missed by all who love you and anyone who was lucky enough to have known you. The world has lost a true Gentleman and one of the strongest men I have ever known. RIP my friend...I know you will be watching over all of us just as you did in life.

How long ago we served together at Parris Island, S.C. Played golf, traveled home together, and socialized each weekend. You will be missed Jack.

Thank you, for being a life long friend. You have lived a well chosen life and now you have left us in the great faith of our Risen Lord, we will see you in Glory.
