    Jack was a legend among those of us who worked with him and knew him as a man. Totally dedicated to everything he did and loved. He was calm and serious when needed but then with his one liners could break the stress and tension in the next minute…Jack,was one of a kind and I feel I am a better person for knowing him. Jack, you made my job a whole lot easier and I will never ever forget you..When you ask the question if you made a difference …your coworkers and your supervisor, say……HUGE…RIP Jack, you earned it

    I also worked with Jack at OCCDA. He was always very supportive and helpful. He had such extensive knowledge and experience, and was always willing to share that knowledge. He also could always make me laugh. I had a great time when I worked on his shift.

    He will be greatly missed. RIP, Jack!
