I worked with Jack @ Network Ambulance and spent many days talking with him at the base on Greenridge street. He was always ready to share a story and was never harsh towards anyone. My condolences to you and your family.

Although I did not know Jack personally, I do know his daughter Gabby and send my sincere condolences to the entire family. Gabby is a beautiful person inside and out with a great personality which I can only imagine came from her loving parents. May Jack rest in peace and his love shine bright through those still here.
