Condolence & Memory Journal

I'm sorry to hear of Jack's passing. I also worked with Jack for many years at OSHA in Appleton. He was a fun loving man and great to be around. He often would come up with some funny saying that would make those around him laugh. He made the day much brighter for those around him. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

You will be missed Jack.

I am sorry to hear of Jack's passing. I have some great ( and fun) memories when I worked with Jack ( and Carl) at the OSHA office in Appleton. We did some inspections together before I transferred to the warmer climes of Georgia and Alabama. I also had 33 years with OSHA. Jack was lots of fun to spend time with and he always had a ready smile.
Rest In Peace Jack.
