Jack was one of the guys I met when I moved to Nutley and started my business. I thought very highly of him as one of those people that truly cared about our town. When I was in Rotary he came to me to help him to continue the Veterans Day parade which I was more than happy to do with him. We had many conversations over the years which I enjoyed immensely. He truly was a good guy. I for one will miss him. All the best and God speed you on your journey. Sam Fleitell
