I am Jacks brother. I grew up with Jack. We did everything together. Jack wasn’t just an older brother he was a friend and constant companion. We were the best man in each other’s wedding and I saw him as such a role model I wanted to name my son after him. I hope he is enjoying his new body. I’ll miss him dearly.

Jack's joy in our Lord, his passion & compassionate heart to serve His Lord and Savior and others in our church and his life's mission of mercy as a nurse was very captivating. He was a light of our Lord's love to all he served and met along his life's journey. He will be dearly missed.
