Not sure what to say?

Lee and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Jack was a friend and mentor to me for many years and he always had my back. He gave me opportunities to hone in on my skills and take on greater responsibilities. We shared many laughs hanging out together at the conference with friends we would see once a year. His impact on my life will never be forgotten. God Bless you Jack. I will miss you but will treasure the years we spent together.

Deepest sympathy to the entire family. Jack was a bright light to us all and will be sorely missed.

My deepest sympathy to Jack's family. I was lucky to be part of his NYS AHPERD family and will miss him deeply. I will treasure the memories we shared at Minnowbrook. RIP Jack

Lee, Erik and Amy,
It was with deep regret that I saw the passing of Jack. It has been 25 years since we all were caught up in the Sweet Home experience with our kids. I also had great experiences with Jack at UB for a short time when I taught there in the ED department. Jack was an energetic, resourceful and fun guy to be with. Erik and my son Dave were classmates in the era when SH was a sports powerhouse and academic volcano.
I know you all have wonderful memories and that...

I have fond memories of Professor Baker when attending UB for my B.S. whike he kept us in our toes in class--I always felt he truly cared about how I did and when I saw him over the years at UB games, he always stopped to say hi to me and my children and ask me what I was up to in my life. Very sad to hear of his passing.

rest Jack, I enjoyed working with you at NYSAHPERD


Jack was a wonderful, upbeat, and caring person. He was a successful alumni of The College at Brockport, and he was devoted to NYSAHPERD. He made me feel welcome my first day at the conference in 1995. he will surely be missed. We are so sorry for your loss.

Lee ,
It was an honor knowing Jack. I remember, fondly, our conversations at the Radens' parties. My deepest sympathies are with you, Amy, and Erik in your time of grief. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you and your family.
