“A man is not loved for how tall he stands, but how often he bends to help, comfort and teach.”
– That one sentence describes what Jack was all about.
In December 1979, after a company Christmas party, Jack walked me to the train, through the World Trade Center concourse. There he asked me for my phone number and we shared our first kiss. For the next year, we would walk together, from our place of work at 90 West Street, to the World Trade Center. We would say our goodbyes there at the steps of the Path Train. He would go home to New Jersey and I would start my trip home to Long Island.
Our life together started at the World Trade Center and ended there on September 11, 2001.
Jack had many passions, he filled many roles, he took many challenges, he nurtured many friendships, he meant so much to many of us. Jack was first and foremost a family man. He was a devoted husband and father to our daughters, Jacqueline and Emily. Jack shared with them his interest in sports; coaching them in softball and basketball and following his favorite Mets and Jets teams. He took them camping, kayaking and fishing and for all of us Jack will certainly live on in Jacqueline and Emily’s shared love of his passions.
To his extended family Jack was a wonderful son, brother, son-in-law, uncle, nephew, cousin and grandson. He was caring, considerate, and generous and no holiday will ever be bearable without Jack in the kitchen cooking up the meal.
He managed to maintain close relationships with high school and college classmates and with work colleagues.
Jack’s easy-going nature, his accommodating style, his sociable personality, and his bright smile were easy to be around and incredibly difficult to be without.
To me, he was my best friend, my happiness and my life. He was a beautiful person, who filled our lives with many happy memories.
Until we meet again…………..
“They love each other, Lord you can see that it’s true”
