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.
