  3. I heard the news from a previous co-worker that worked with me and Jack at Springhill Suites. I knew Jack since 2008 when I started at the Hampton Inn. I was so happy to have him come work for me at SHS 2 years ago when I was the manager there. Jack loved to talk to anyone and especially about sports! Jack will definitely always have a place in my heart. I can hear his known laugh in my head. I’m so sorry for your loss, he will definitely be missed! Thoughts and prayers for his wife and entire family.

  4. My dear friend and neighbor from Steubenville. Jack was a great guy and we use to sit in the yard and listen to Michael Jackson all day in the summer ?. He is the first one that told me to listen to PYT lol. I graduated from high school with his brother Mark. He was a great guy and friend to me and my sister Lisa. God bless his family. Our deepest condolences for this great loss.
