  3. Dear Lordeon Family,

    I just learned today of Jack’s passing, and want to extend me deepest sympathies to you. I attended law school with Jack, and we took many classes together during our three years at Mississippi College School of Law. Although I hadn’t spoken to him since graduation, I feel an incredible sense of loss today. I have so many great memories of Jack, and I can scarcely think of law school without thinking of him. Please know that Jack touched the lives of many people who you may not know, and that we will miss him very much.

  5. Jack was the first person I met on my first day at the College of Charleston; we sat next to each other at orientation. We quickly became friends. Eventually, we roomed together with a couple of other friends in a rental home just off campus. Jack thought deeply and possessed wisdom that reached beyond his years. I think of him often, even though we didn’t keep in touch after graduation. Some of the great conversations that we shared over our time together will always be remembered by me.

    I pray for his family.

  15. Dear Lordeon family,
    I went to law school with Jack and have very fond memories of him. He always had a smile on his face and seemed to have time for a visit. I haven’t seen him in a while, but heard through friends that he was going through a hard time. I’m sorry for your loss and know you will miss him very much. He was a good, kind soul. I’ll keep your family, and especially his son, in my thoughts and prayers.

    I was so sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. We sat by each other the first day of our first class in law school. We instantly became friends. In fact, in October of that year (1996), Jack attended my son’s 2nd birthday and so he became an honorary uncle to my now 13 year old. Jack loved his family and spoke of you all often. He will be greatly missed by all of his Mississippi College School of Law friends.

  27. Dear Lordeon family,
    Jack was a fellow class of ’88 graduate at Carolina Day School, and he was the spry jester I remember, even after nearly twenty years. My heart goes out to you, but Jack will always be spry and smiling in my memories.

  28. While growing up, Jack was one of my best friends but we lost touch in our late teens. I always looked forward to finding him later in life and began my search to only find that he has passed away. I will cherish our childhood memories forever.
