From Kevin Pedigo-
Although Jack went through some troubled times in his adult life. I will always remember him as the clown I knew in school. I played Little League and Babe Ruth baseball against Jack and there was no more fearsome opponent. Once in Junior High we became teammates on the basketball teams. I then knew what it was like to have him on my side. An unselfish team player who thought more of the whole than the one. On road trips to games Jack and Scott Rorhabaugh would act like Mick Jagger and the Stones on the bus and have us all laughing so hard we would cry. Never one with a harsh word, Jack was the one who could pull you up when you were down. I remember one night our Sophomore year, We both were sitting the bench during a Junior Varsity basketball game against Zionsville. Junior Gerald hurt his knee and had to be carried off the floor. Coach Adamson walked back to the bench and looked at Jack and I, Jack spoke up and said “Put Kevin in, he can handle the ball better against this defense” Coach put me in and I played the rest of the game and I’m not sure Jack ever got in. That is the type of team player I’ll always remember Jack to be. Rest in Peace Jack, you’ll be remembered as the kind soul you were.
