As a neighbor growing up, I remember Jack being such a pleasant, friendly, happy person. Like his parents, Rachel and Bascom, he was ever devoted to his family, and more than willing to help anyone who needed it...all traits the world needs more of. He will be sadly missed. My sincere condolences to his family.
