Please accept my condolences on the passing of my good friend and golfing bud, Jack. I met him in 2008, surprisingly on the golf course. We seem to find ourselves on the same teams very often. From day one I knew Jack was a "class" guy. He always had fun and made sure those of us around did the same. I believe I am blessed to have gotten one last round with him at Reynolds Plantation in GA and I'm even more blessed to carry memories of him from our many encounters. He will be deeply missed.

I cannot express how much I am going to miss Jack. He was not only my boss but my partner on the job and a good friend. Jack was the kind of person that you enjoyed working with and enjoyed listening to him talk about his family. He was such a good example of a man that loved his job and loved his family and knew how to mix or separate the two. He was a fair man. He will forever be in my heart. I pray for peace for Pam and the family.
Jack has touched so many lives and we will all miss him.

Dear Pam and family,
My thoughts and prayers go out to you at this time. I worked with Jack at Prudential many years ago. I moved to Colorado in '82 but saw him on occasion while visiting in T.H. He was fun to work with and had a good sense of humor. He will be truly missed!

I was very sorry to hear about Jack. He was a good and fair boss. He and I shared many stories about our grandkids before I retired from Farm Bureau. I know he will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family

Dear Pam, Alana and Jeff,

Jack was my classmate in high school CHS class of 1968 and my insurance man when he was with Prudential. One thing I know for sure he loved his family and he was such a joy to be around. He always attended our class reunions also and he will be sadly missed this year. I am so sorry for your loss and with this sudden event, it is even more devastating I know. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your families. He was a good good man.

Cappa family: I am very sorry to hear about Jack. We were golfing buddies. Had a lot of laughs and good times with Jack. Please accept mine and my wife, Bridget's sympathy. We were out of town for his showing. Respectfully, Bill and Bridget Ikerd.

I heard of your brothers passing and found the story on the Internet. I have you in our prayers along with our prayer group here in North Carolina.

Gods plan is a mosaic of ups, downs, surprises, no answers to questions, tears, emptiness, turns/twists and unending and totally dedicated love; etc for us all.

God will reward your brother in heaven and will always be awesome to his wife, you as his brother and so many others he has touched with his grace.

I am so sorry for your loss, Mick. I have 3 other brothers and a sister. I can only pray for healing at this time and that ask that you to continue to cherish the memories of your brother you have and keep them always close to your heart.

All the best
Pat Hagerman
