    I was so sorry and shocked to hear of Jack's passing! I can still remember him standing in front of my first computer class...and thinking...this guy knows his business. My heart and support go out to family and to Larry at this time.

    Jack was such a pleasure to be around --always with such a warm smile and positive outlook! It is so special to think of all the hundreds of people he has enriched through his educational and musical talents. My thoughts and prayers are with Larry and his family.

    I am sure I speak for many of his students. He was a special man and a wonderful instructor. He was one of the best instructors I have ever had and he will be missed by all. May God be with his special friend and family.

    I was a part-time instructor at BRCC for many years and had the honor of working along side Jack. He was "one of the good guys", always willing to help others.
