So thankful to have had the opportunity to know Jack and hopefully in some way help him through all the medical challenges he has had over the past almost 4 years. He was courageous and brave, loving, kind, compassionate, and possessed a great sense of humor through it all. I will remember him with love and miss him dearly. His family is in my prayers. He loved his family and was so proud of all of them.
