John “Jack” Dempsey, was a great mentor! He taught me a lot about the Security business! We worked together at the Clark County Public Library as Security Officer’s! Jack was on top of his game! That’s why the library is the House that Jack built

Marty and Michelle, and the extended Dempsey Family. I am so sorry for your loss. Jack was an Awsome human being. We shared some crazy times at the Library. He was so proud of his family, and I know you all were proud of him. He always had the greatest stories to tell. I could sit and listen all day to him. He always talked about our Savior, and I know there is a special place for him, right next to the throne. You will forever be in my thoughts and prayers. Please keep in touch,
Love Jeff Smith
