I still don't believe that he is gone.
Jack helped me when others didn't. I can honestly say that I loved him, if anyone really loves their trainer :wink:.
I noticed his compassion and determination as he worked. His professionalism. He had goals, and he was just reaching all he wanted.
His weird sense of humor, or mine...
You will be missed greatly Jack!
I'm sending prayers to your entire family. I know you will be looking over everyone.
I Thank You very much for all you did in such a short time.
May in R.I.P

I'll never forget the summers I spent with Jack. His boundless enthusiasm for life always encouraged me to try new things, and discover more ways enjoy it.

He'll always be a part of who I am today, and I'll never forget the love he shared with me.

I'm still in shock over this loss. I'll never forget your infectious smile and big personality. One of the biggest things that stood out to me about you and I'll never forget is your LOVE for your family. You always spoke so lovingly and caring about them, you had a great heart. So many memories... I'm a better person for knowing you Jack. May you rest in peace.

I only saw jack about once a year at a spiritual retreat, but it was as if we lived in the same neighborhood. He always treated me and everyone else like family and I suppose we were in a sense. Gonna miss seeing you each year.
