Emma and I are very sad to hear the news of Jack’s passing. He was definitely one of the good guys. We spent many many hours together working on the baseball program and enjoying being with the boys! We will really miss him.
Zoe…you will not recognize my name, but you have opened your home to me. I am mary evrard’s sister snd stayed at your home when our previous jeff went home to the lord. And now, it is my time to say how sorry I am to hear of the loss of your beloved Jack. Let mary comfort you…she loves you so much. Our deepest comfort to you during this time. Sue and paul Gimby
Our heartfelt condolences to Zoe and family on their loss. Jack had a special kind of laugh that also made you laugh. He was a straight shooter and called things as he saw them. His tireless devotion to youth baseball in the Kingwood area was second to none. We enjoyed some great times together. I’m guess that God is putting a special group together and needed Jack’s help. You’re in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Zoe–Jack was a friend and CPA for most of the properties KRJ Management managed while I owned the company. He always did a great job for me and I enjoyed our friendship and working relationship for many years. I will miss him.
Just found out about Jack’s passing last month. I am so sorry to hear of his passing so late and we would have been at his service if we had known.
Jack was special to me and our time at Arthur Andersen, having worked with him for several years.
He was so funny and could make us all laugh in the toughest of times. It had been several years since we had talked. He was smart and loved buy all. Our sincere sympathies to you and your family.Love,
Leonard A. Bedell
