    Jack was an amazing person in every sense of the word. From a business standpoint, Jack was the absolute best in the adhesive business. When I say the best, I mean the tops in his field. Not many people can ever get to that position in life. It takes knowledge, persistence, foresight and an extreme amount of talent. Jack had it all. Usually, being the best comes with a certain amount of bravado and attitude. Jack was the opposite. He was humble, giving, caring and always willing to help. I was privileged to know him and will miss him. We all will.

    I was lucky to have Jack as a soccer coach for many years. He was the best. His friendly demeanor and sense of humor put everyone at ease, and he just made everything fun. My condolences to Mary, Beth, and Julie.
