I met Jack and Pam at South Ward Ekementary.  From day one, Jack was full of fun and mischief and Pam was beautiful and shy    They were a perfect match to fill gaps.   It’s facebook that brought me to find school chums.  His passing was shocking and tragic.  What a sadness will fill the giant hole he left.  My best to Pam and family    I was a widow in 2009 after a 40 year marriage.  Put your faith in God to comfort you. God bless you and your family ❤️

Didn’t know Jack well, had a class or two with him in HS, but it takes a good man to work with and coach youth, and it seems he was that good man.  My condolences to Pam and family.

My deepest sympathies to Pam and her children. I was shocked to hear about Jack. Life is so precious and can be taken away way too early. Even though Jack's gone, you can keep him alive in your hearts forever with all the beautiful memories you have of him. He was such a great man. He will be deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you!!
