  1. Jack was not only my trainer but he was a friend as well. He was an excellent teacher who wanted his customers to enjoy what they were doing and to be winners as well.

    As a group, the amateurs had a great time and Jack supported us in having fun. We will all miss him.

    We are sure that Pam knows how much Jack loved her. He was a great father who was so proud of his children.

    Jack, we will miss you.

  2. I was so sorry to learn of passing of Jack. I had the privelidge to meet him when I stopped by his house to inquire about his horse SR Customized. He had just returned from a world show and was very tired, but allowed his stable hand to get out SR Customized, and show him to me. We have a filly from him which has great conformation.. I was very pleased to meet him and so sorry for the family loss.
