Not sure what to say?

I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Echternach. Dr. E. gave me the opportunity to come to Old Dominion. I will be forever grateful to him for that, as well as the direction he provided in my professional life. He was one of those rare individuals that really challenged you in order to bring out the best in you. My condolences to the Echternach family.

I was very sad to hear about passing of Dr Echternach. I have known him from Nova Southeastern University. I was one of his students in many of his classes. He was a mentor and bright professor. I was hoping that he will be my consultant for my dissertation. My condolences to his family.

Indeed, a pillar within the physical therapy profession.

We will truly miss Jack - he was one of mentors and sages. What a difficult year for your family. Know that there are a world of physical therapists thinking of you!

Jack will be missed by many...his charming and dry sense of humor, his challenging questions and his interesting answers to prickly professional issues were highly valued. My condolences to his family and his wide circle of friends...

Sad news, Jack was a good friend and colleague; he will be missed

Mrs. Echternach, you have experienced great loss in a short year, please accept my condolences. I was a childhood friend of son John, a great scout, a recall husband Jack presenting to our Larchmont class at the navy hospital on Hampton Blvd. We had fun chasing mercury droplets. God bless, Vance Hull, Norfolk

Will miss you Jack. Your impact will continue.

Jack was a valued friend and mentor to me and to many others in the physical therapy community. We will miss him greatly. But his accomplishments live on in the advances to our field that resulted directly and indirectly from his research, writing, and teaching.
