I was stunned to read of Jackie passing away. We were caddys together so many years ago at Plymouth CC. He was a great player and even a greater guy.

Please accept my sincerest condolences. Jack was a very special person, who gave generously of himself. He was a wonderful mentor to many new amputees, who were in need of support and encouragement. I remember his undeniable spirit, from the early days when he was coaching and refereeing basketball during summers at Wethersfield with his new prosthesis. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
