I saw this obituary on Face Book. Although I was not a friend of Jack, I remember him from his Jr. and High School days growing up in West Orange! His family will probably remember my family...Lemaldi/Renna long time residents of West Orange.

I can recall the days the gang, hung out in Colgate Park and in the local candy stores, Jack being present. I can still see his smiling face. I am sending my deepest sympathy to his family and want to thank Jack for his service to our country during a very turbulent time. Rest in peace!

Thank you for your service, Hero. My brother would have been your age, served in DaNang, and passed away from Agent Orange. May these two soldiers Rest In Peace together.
