Default Saying goodby to Jack!

Tomorrow I go to say goodbye to Jack. A friend who was never to busy to help anyone . Jack was not only a Great racer, and a World Champion but a Great person to be around. I believe the Lord wants us to enjoy life and have fun and to spread this joy to everyone else and I feel that Jack did this as good as any person could have done. I will miss him always . Tomorrow my sadness
will be for his family and friends as we gather to say goodbye!

All my Love and prayers Keith Herbott.

Very well said Keith

From a fans perspective... Jack always made time for us fans, no matter what he was doing, he would stop to talk, answer questions, joke around and show everyone the boat. Jack was the one who took my 6 yr old son up on the boat to show him everything. He must have spent about 15 minutes with Josh answering questions, and showing him what ever he wanted. He was an amazing guy. Thank you Jack for everything. You'll be surely missed.

My prayers are with everyone during this time
Connie

First I would like to say that the loss of Jack in Daytona really hit home to a lot of racers and fans...It is a HUGE loss to offshore racing. Jack did not talk a lot of ****. He just went out there and showed everyone, time and time again that he was one of the best throttlemen in the sport....AND with out a doubt the best a Formula has ever seen! They put a huge effort into racing and it showed! Our team will for sure miss him! I think Jack would like to see the rest of us continue doing what we love doing!

Howard, I will not say i know know your pain, because I do not. The loss is tremendous!
