RIP Jack! And Thank you for everything! Little Billy

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Jack was a wonderful man who was loved by everyone that came into contact of him. I have some amazing memories of my time at the ZBT house while in college and Jack is prominently in so many of them.

What great memories in college of working as a waiter for jack at the zbt house. Rip!

Jack was such a great man who always looked out for his children at UT. He was warm, kind and loving. I will never forget this great man. His name and memory will live on through those he loved and impacted.

What a life and thank you Jack for being such a wonderful human being...you may be gone, but you will never be forgotten. You truly broke the mold Jack...there wont be another one like you my...

RIP Jack, my old friend. Thank you for your service to our country and for all the great memories at the Zebe House. My condolences to the Burton family.
