A remarkable athlete, Jack was a nationally ranked platform tennis player who also enjoyed golf, bird hunting, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, and biking. A lover of the outdoors, Jack’s knowledge of the winds, tides, constellations, space travel, gardening, and paleontology was unmatched. Jack was incredibly kind and generous with everything he had, especially his time and love, which he shared freely with family and friends. He will be remembered for his ready smile, brilliance and sharp intellect, legendary storytelling abilities, and adventurous spirit.
