Condolence & Memory Journal

I worked with Jack for many years assisting college graduates find jobs in their fields of study.

He was a very humorous man and very good with students. He often came to work with a smile on his face and a bag of my favorite pastries in hand. He was one in a million! A few weeks ago we met for lunch and I am so glad now that we did it. I am glad I got the chance to eat with him and catch up.

I am very sad to read his obituary today. He was a kind, generous man. I am so sorry to see that he passed so suddenly. May peace be with all of Jack's family and friends. I am very sorry for your loss. We will miss him.
