Condolence: Jack loved to have fun and he never said "no", or "I'm tired" or "I'm busy". He dedicated time to his family and friends. Some of the best memories of our lives were made with Jack in MA, ME, NY, CT, MD, and Italy. Jack had a guiding principle that he lived by: "You are the sum of your experiences and I'm not willing to miss a single one of them." How blessed we were to be included in so many of those experiences!!
We pray Jack is now enjoying the greatest experience of all, eternal life in the presence of God in heaven.
Condolence: Jack was a good friend and trusted advisor. We shared a love of Lancaster and coastal Maine. The First Church community is the poorer from his passing, but we were all greatly enriched by Jack's life. I will miss him greatly!
Condolence: To all of the family we extend our sympathy. Our "Yale Group" dinners are going to the missing a prime participant.
We have so many great memories of the all the weddings, the holidays in Maine, our times at Mory's and Yale reunions. Life is racing by. Jack, we will miss you.
Condolence: Jack and I go back to grammar school at Helen Street School,Hamden,CT. We then entered and graduated Hamden High School and,subsequently,Yale University,as undergraduates. We shared many memories at Yale and later on
in our professional lives. There were also private moments up at Jack's home in Maine which I will never forget.
Jack will always remain a part of my history. Rest in peace to an old friend,extremely intelligent attorney, and a fine individual.
My sympathies go out to all of you at this difficult time. I grew up living next door to Jack and his family in Hamden. We went to Helen St. grammar school together. We were both altar boys at Blessed Sacrament church. We were also both "early entreprenuers" as we shared a paper route in the area. Although I didn't see Jack very often in recent years, I will always remember what a great guy he was.
