Our deepest sympathy to Jacks family. My family and I got to know Jack briefly while he shared a room with my father at Bear Hill . During that short time Jack became quick friends with my mother ,father and family. He would update our family as to how my fathers night went, had a positive word to add and was always willing to share a snack or two. He seemed to genuinely care for my father and his wellbeing.

Jack was the best kind of friend anyone could ever have. When he was your friend, it was forever. I am so glad to have met him and had him in my life. I will miss him so much. But I know I will see him again.
Rest well, Jack. I know these last years haven't been easy. You are in the best place now. Heaven is a richer place now that you are there and there is a hole in my life for now.
I'll see you when I see you. I love you, big guy.

It took me some time to understand why Jack was so special person. Anybody who ever met him, would immediately understand it. He was so overwhelmingly positive, emphatic and open person that you may not talk to him for months or years and next time you see him you feel like you met him every one of these days that passed. When we traveled to whatever place, he always appreciated everything around him.
My son met him only twice and

I met wonderful Jack at my first real job from college. At the then called Data Resources 43 years ago. We have kept in touch on and off over the years thanks to dear friend Shari Matthews who organized many a get together. Just his name brings a smile to my face! Such a special, loving, fun friend. He will be sorely missed.

My dear Jackie ❤. Friend just doesn't express it. I met you and we became friends when I was 6 years old with both of us living living on Sweetser Street, and now you part this life with us being best friends. Our lives have often gone in different directions but yet we have stayed connected throughout. My life has been so enriched by our growing up and old together. You were the funniest piece of work imaginable; never without

Jack was the funniest person I know. He was quick with a joke to make you laugh and feel better. Going to miss him.

He was not only a cousin, but a very special friend. Fun person with a great sense of humor. I will miss him terribly. The only thing that's okay, is that there will be no more pain. Remember our time in Boston and Faneuil Hall?
I love you, Jack - the world will not be the same without you.
