We are so sorry about your dad passing away. Unfortunately, I know how it is to lose someone you love. You were very close to him and he loved you all so dearly. Please take comfort in how many good times he had with all of you. You were all lucky he lived to see you all get married. He met all of his grandchildren.
I love you all.

Jackie was a terrific person who had to overcome some hardship in his early life. He was respected by all who knew him as a decent, honest man who loved his family very much. He was always a loyal friend to me and others and shared his wonderful smile with all. I send my sincere condolences to his family and look forward to seeing you soon.

Your Dad Jack was my boss at Century Factors back in 1975-1980
and his secretary Betty we all sat side by side. Jack was the Best Boss anyone could ask for. I learned so much from him which carried on into my career in Credit, I was only 24 at the time. I will never forget the fun and laughter we shared and I admired his intelligence and keen sense of humor to match. We would eat lunch occasionally in Bryant Park and people watch and poke fun, he was so well read, and worldly. I was inspired and learned so much about the Opera and books and his travels to Greece especially, when he rode on a donkey… the way he described his adventure was to funny. Jack always talked so lovingly about his children and Josephine and at that time I recall Maxine was his girlfriend and I see they married..that’s so nice.
My deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to your family.
