  15. We all were shocked by Jack’s passing and it reaffirms how precious life is. He was always a steady hand in times of difficulty.

    Many claim their faith but Jack lived his faith in Christ as close as anyone could. I enjoyed working with him and our community will surely miss him.

  16. David,

    I didn’t know your father well but I just wanted you to know that you and your family have been in my paryers. We seem so invincible at this age and don’t expect to loose our parents yet. I’m so sorry, I know he was a very respected man.

  17. I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Jack for the past five years and his untimely passing has affected the entire mortgage banking community especially his family at Blue Ridge Savings Bank! We still believe that he will be walking through the door at any moment. As I mentioned to Jack’s mother, Sarah, not only did I learn a tremendous amount about mortgages but more importantly, I have learned a tremendous amount about the kindness of people! I always admired the fact that Jack always spoke so highly of his family. He was loved by many!

  18. Hope I long to hear that wonderful laugh through the wall, or the latest family story. I feel I know all of you, Linda, David and Chesley, Jack was so very proud of each of you. He was a wonderful man and I feel Blessed to have known him, if only for one and a half years. You are all in my prayers.

  19. Dearest Linda and Children…our hearts go out to each of you in the loss of your husband, best friend, and father. All of you are in our prayers and hearts. With so much love, Judy, ken, Paige, Mark and Mary

  20. Linda, David and Chesley:
    The time were many that Jack and I would talk about our families. I have never talked with a prouder husband and father who so openly talked so lovingly about his family.
    I will always remember him as a very caring and generous friend who was probably the best all around mortgage banker I have known.
    I miss him more than I can say.

  21. It doesnt interest me what people do for a living or what they die from. The importance of life is in the passion you have for living. From all of these comments, my brother is remembered for his passion for his family and for his care of people. He gave of himself and brought joy and laughter to those around him. He brought those special qualities to our lives and to the way he always cared for my mother and me. He has a special place in my life and in my heart. His passing will not change that. I miss you, Jack.
